Hi Dozerash, these are meant to replace the original footpegs which are very skinny/small for most riders. Personally I found the easiest way is to remove the entire bracket holding the footpegs onto the bike. If you are sitting on the bike the right side has 2 bolts with a Allen key head and the left side has 1 bolt with a standard 6 point head. Of course everything on the bike is metric although sometimes you can get SAE tools to work but I suggest the proper metric size tools would be better for you. After you remove the brackets it helps if you have a bench vise to hold the brackets. For disassembly you remove the cotter pin and then slide out the shaft holding the footpeg to the bracket. Take note of how the spring is set-up and to reinstall I had to use a awl to line the spring up to reinsert the pin into the assembly. I also rounded off the pin on a grinder to allow it to be easier to install. It may sound complicated but it is not. Try one side first and see how it goes. Good luck!
