Rear Footpegs
« on: May 29, 2013, 10:14:16 AM »
We have found that the nearside rear footpeg has failed causing the rubber to rotate.

The cause is the cheap plastic fitting that is designed to stop the rubber from rotating. This has caused Sarah immense probelms when getting on as she can slip. This is, in our opinion, A design fault as all passengers will turn their foot on the peg as the climb on board.

I took this to the dealership who inform me that the older Trophy models had two screws through the peg to prevent the rubber from rotating. They are replacing the plastic clip when it goes in for its other warrenty issues. I have asked them to discuss it with Triumph as it is a design flaw.

I am posting this to a. ask whether anyone else has had this issue, b. to warm about it and c. to ask whether anyone knows of alternative pegs that would fit?
