1980 TT 500 Swingarm

Recommended Posts

Need a little help. I have a 1980 Yamaha TT500 with the stock alumium swingarm. I would like to install passenger pegs. Would it hurt to drill the swingarm. Or would it weaken it to much? Thanks Dan :banghead:

pilion pegs dont get mounted to the swingarm. if you do the pillion will be bounced around during wheel travel.

All the old Xt500's had the pegs mounted on the swingarm. I have an extra swingarm if you want to do a trade.

The easiest way is to get some of those footpegs that are designed to bolt on with the shock bolts going through them-no drilling,no welding and easy to remove afterwards.

Good luck,

Brandon.
