    Sorry if this is covered in another thread...I spent a bunch of time searching, but couldn't find anything.

    I'm removing the foot pegs to install the touratech skid plate. The left hand side comes of easy enough, but the pin for the right hand side is blocked by the brake pedal.

    Am I being an idiot? Or do I have to remove the brake pedal to get it off? (the answer is probably both).

    Thanks!

    Well, I just loosened the brake pedal and it gave me enough wriggle room to pop the pin out. Hopefully it won't be a pain to get back on!

    Just remove the bolt into the master cylinder plunger. That will give you enough room. It is advised to use thread lock on all brake parts when you put it back in.

    I just disconnected the spring on the back of the brake pedal, it allowed me to position the brake pedal out of the way so I could remove the pin.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it is a absolute MOFO to get back on! Or at least it was for me anyway!

    yeah...the video in this post http://advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=23186437&postcount=12 helped a ton. Dunno if I would have figured out how to get the springs back in without it.
