Footpegs

From Unofficial Zero Manual
Jump to: navigation, search

Zero footpegs are cast aluminum pieces, mounted on identical hinges so are interchangeable across models.

Mounting
The mount bracket uses a custom clevis, secured with a retaining E-clip.
Repair
The footpegs' aluminum casting is relatively brittle, and the pegs tend to break rather than bend.
See Footpeg Replacement.
Reference
"The pegs are the exact same part used by the Buell XB models (except for the Ulysses), and as the passenger pegs on the 1125R models. They are "sacrificial lambs" to protect the rest of the frame."

Rider Footpegs

Sport Footpegs
Installed on S/SR/FXS models.
Constructed as a cylindrical smooth-surfaced cast aluminum piece with a corrugated upper surface for some grip.
They are spring-loaded.
There is a feeler stud measuring M6X16 with a DIN 1587 M6 18-8 cap/acorn nut.
Dual Sport Footpegs
Installed on DS/DSR/FX models.
Constructed as a mildly-cleated rough-finish cast aluminum piece with a wide flat surface mounted horizontally.
They are spring-loaded.
Because of their construction, these actually offer less legroom than the sport footpegs.

Rider Footpeg Removal

footpeg retaining clip and tool
Tools
  • Snap Ring / E-Ring pliers (needlenose pliers are a common if less easy substitute).
  • (Optional) 7mm Allen key to remove the clevis bracket from the frame.
Steps
  1. Gently spread the gap in the retaining E-ring using the pliers until it slides over the end of the pin, and remove it.
    This clip is on the lower end of the footpeg retaining pin.
  2. Pull the retaining pin up and out.
    Hold and pull the pin spring and footpeg as the pin comes out.
  3. (Optional) Use the 7mm Allen key to remove the bolt through the clevis bracket that fastens it to the frame.

Passenger Footpegs

Passenger footpegs are identical to the sport footpegs, since passenger geometry requires reduced legroom and a forward foot angle on the rest.
They are not spring-loaded.

Passenger Footpeg Removal

Tools
  • Snap Ring / E-Ring pliers (needlenose pliers are a common if less easy substitute).
  • 13mm hex side or socket wrench (for the bracket).
Steps
  1. Gently spread the gap in the retaining E-ring using the pliers until it slides over the end of the pin, and remove it.
    This clip is on the lower end of the footpeg retaining pin.
  2. Pull the retaining pin up and out.
    Hold and pull the pin spring and footpeg as the pin comes out.
  3. (Optional) Remove the bracket
    1. Loosen the upper bolts mounting the footpeg brackets to the frame.
      S-platform: Reaching these bolts from the rear is easiest since they are on the inside of the frame.
    2. Loosen the lower bolts mounting the footpeg brackets to the frame.
      S-platform: These face the motor and allow very low overhead.
      A side wrench is recommended, and a ratcheting version preferred.
    3. Remove the bolts and then the brackets.
