    Remove my Passenger pegs from bracket.

    After watching that guys right knee bone sticking out and caved in on the UTV I think I will get my grinder and cut off wheel out and remove my passenger pegs on the TW as I will never have a passenger on the back I will keep the bracket on for a crash bar.

    I was thinking of doing the same thing only I was going to take the little bar thingys off too. Your idea of leaving them on for crash bars may have merit.

    Good plan Paul. That damaged knee made me cringe too. The passenger peg bracket does make a good crash bar. I like that they often keeps bike from stalling in a simple tip over as the tire does not contact the ground.

    I took mine off bracket and all a few months after I bought my bike. Seemed to be one more thing to hang up on branches or other obstacles.

    Take them off if you want, but the brackets are useful attachments for pannier supports or racks for those who do not have the deluxe rack setups. A piece of 1" square tubing just fits in that bracket and served as the major support for the brace that holds my saddlebags off the muffler/other side of bike. The weight of the bags is supported over the back of the seat, but the brace keeps things solidly out of the wheel and serves as a tie-down site as well.

    Just saying. Tom

    I like peruanos's welding approach. If you are that talented or have someone who is I think that is great. From a basic perspective, I removed the damned brackets and footpegs long ago. They serve no purpose for most riding situations. I am sure that someone will find fault with this, so be it.

    Just give me a minute while I collect my thoughts. They're around here somewhere. Maybe!
