Fitting rear pegs over high-mounted exhausts

Post by Tom87 » Thu Nov 07, 2019 5:17 pm

Hi guys,

Recently purchased a '98 VTR. It came with aftermarket Remus exhausts high mounted which has eliminated the rear pegs.

I considered spacers but the distance they would need to be at least 4.5 - 5 inches to get enough clearance which would provide too much flex to be safe.

Here's what the underside of the exhaust looks like.

Has anyone on here managed to install rear pegs over high mount exhausts and got any tips? I have seen similar situation where someone has installed brackets to the bottom of the peg frame also but could not see what they were fixed to. It's probably gona be a no go but thought I'd ask.

Thanks

Use tubed spacers with longer bolts.

Thanks for that. Don't suppose you know the width dimensions required for the bolts and spacers? I don't have the right sized alan key to take them out and measure until tomorrow. The Haynes manual doesn't give any info on actual bolt sizes from what I can find.

OEM is 8x22

Best invest in some allen sockets / keys and have a measure to see what length is needed to clear the exhausts. A thread gauge also comes in handy or just take old bolt to a local fixings & fastening dealer, usually on most Industrial sites and they'll sort you out.

Thanks Wicky I'll do that. Having a look online it doesn't look like I'll find a spacer over a couple inches without fabrication.
