Help removing chaincase cover/footpeg.


Can't for the life of me figure this out and it seems like it should be simple.

Spent about an hour trying to remove the left footpeg so I can remove the primary cover to check into a possible clutch problem.

I remove the bolt from the shaft the foot peg is on, try to pull the foot peg off, it slides about 1/4" or 5mm and just stops. I can't get it to travel any further. Tried levering it, hammering it, etc, no help. There isn't anything in my instruction book about this being a difficult task.

The bike shakes pretty bad when I fully release the clutch while in motion, when it didn't do that last year. Figured it was a clutch issue so that's why I was investigating by removing the primary cover in the first place.

Is there some secret to removing a simple foot peg?

Thanks for any advice...

Well, worked my ass off trying to get it loose, gave up. Small 110 pound girlfriend asks what's wrong, tell her, she walked over and pops it off in like 3 seconds. Cannot explain what happened, guess she had a the magic touch.....

Hi Paul

I think we've all had that happen! Sometimes the more you try the worse / less it works...

Glad it worked out :-)
