Honda Didn't Listen to Me

Just checked out the new 2013 1K.....rear footpegs still look like an 8 hour job to remove (not so on the 600RR). Plus, the rear parachute tag bracket still ain't like the other bikes.....no 2 bolt removal here

I've emailed and written bitching about this.....oh well

Haha that's funny. I have some Sato Street Hooks on order and will be doing this job in the near future. Not really looking forward to it to be honest.

When I removed the stock passenger pegs I also installed my TM undertail during the same session. Only took 3 hours instead of 2.

So do Sato Street/Race hooks. I don't carry passengers though, so why tote around that extra weight? Were they as easy to remove install as the majority of other sportbikes I would retain them.

Yeah but they look like ass and hardly ever get used. They should be easier to remove from the factory if I had my wish. Oh well, Honda has to give us something to do in the garage for hours.

I took a sawz-all to mine and painted the nubs black. No one ever noticed them.
