Passenger Pegs

Is it legal/safe? I dont carry passengers...so i figured it would look cool to not have them on there...

You dont need passenger pegs, nor is it illegal to have them on there. I cant think of a way they would attach that would effect the bike in any way. Some highmount exhausts even oust the passenger peg. Make sure pulling them off doesn't effect your warrenty, though I doubt it would.

Often times they are used as a mounting point for a muffler. If this is the case you will have to fabricate/buy a new bracket.

Edit: Just noticed you got a 636 so I doubt this will be an issue for you

i like the look of no rear pegs. if you never see yourself carrying anyone, take it off. there's no real problem with the exhaust issue, so its all good.

that made dropping acid seem like a mild cure for boredom

Thumbs up

I want to take my pegs off also but my girl won't let me. I think I'll just do it and deal with her later.

Shitcan the passenger pegs. It will clean up the look and will stop people from asking to go for a ride (downside is if you are still single)...

Looks clean, but have you thought of puting blueing (it black) on the bolts?

i took mine of my gixer the same day i got it when i also took off my reflectors and chain guard. it looks much cleaner w/o them especially on my body style. i keep them under my pass seat so i can re-attach them easily with the cute little tool kit that suzuki gives you. no problems here....
