Hey guys,
I need to change the right foot peg on my 04 because it is damaged from an accident.
I noticed the left side has a cotter pin through the end of the pin that holds the peg in place; however the right side doesn't.
The right side has like a weird washer of some sort or something at the end of the pin and I can't figure out how to take it apart.

Any help to remove it is appreciated!

Thanks

I thought that there was a pin on one side but not the other was really weird too. I'm afraid it is just a rivet on the right and needs to be drilled out. Get a second opinion, but I'm pretty sure that's the only way. Then of course get a bolt of the same diameter to replace the rivet. Sorry I'm not a 100% on this... anyone else?

The right side peg you need to cut the rivet off with a dremel or drill it out. Then when you put the new peg on you will need to get a pin with a cotter pin to keep the new peg on.

Even better idea than a bolt... i suppose a left side pin/cotter pin would be the same length. looks like a measurment is in order :)

I also had this problem a while back, the simple solution is to drill it out from the bottom side. It literally takes about 3 minutes if you have a drill with the appropriate size bit to swap the peg out. I recommend some GP Pegs, they come with cotter pin replacements for the shitty idea yamaha had for the rivets and are very comfortable for long rides.

Step 1: Remove right rear set
Step 2: Remove allen bolt on the back of the rear set going through to the foot peg. Replacements from yamaha for like 40 bucks.
Step 3: Your done.
