Pitster opinions

Recommended Posts

So, does anybody else feel like all the stock components on the pitsters are REALLY stiff, or dont have much in the way of movement on the breaks. It's really bothersome to lock the wheel with a slight tap of the thing... I still love the bike, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to put on the :confused: foot pegs properly. I know I'm a pit bike noob but, does anybody know how to put 'em on?

Bleed or Change or both the brake fluid... with Dot 4 and then adjust to suit your riding style.

My Pegs came on the bike and had zip ties to hold them up

I have the pics, but is there a way to have them show in the thread, not as a hyperlink, to, like, photobucket?

yea, I got it, but the spring is a little to big, so it engages when the peg is around 60 or 70 degrees up... any ideas how to make it fit better?

Be careful. I got a set of pitster footpegs and got two right side springs and have never been able to get a left hand spring replacement.

The springs are definitely different right to left. The one that did fit on the right side, works very stiffly (which is how I like it) The peg only goes up maybe 30 degrees before it gets very hard to move it further. So if you don't get tension until 70 degrees up you have a problem.

I will take a pic in the morning with my macro cam. Should be clear. How knows, maybe you have two left springs and we can do a swap.

Indeed it is. That flat, straight end of the spring should be over the top of the footpeg with the hooked end hooking over the side of the pegmount.
