How do you swap out the pegs?

Don't laugh... my close up vision sucks. Is there a "c" clip over the retaining pin for the pegs? Any special tools needed to swap out the front pegs? That spring is pretty stiff, how much of a bugger is it to compress it to get it aligned for tapping the retaining pin back in place?

Yes, there are c-clips. I want to say that was the only "tough" thing about the swap. Removing the c-clips without mangling it too much.

Super simple, and if you're careful with popping the c-clip you can use it again; just cup your hand over it as those things have a tendency to launch and then you pretty much have to say 'goodbye'. The other thing is to make sure you use locktite if the pegs are in two pieces. I bought a pair of LSL's, and they've been great.

C Clips can fly further than you think. Hold your hand over them when you are getting them off. I remember thinking when I did my pegs that the C clip wouldn't stay in the track and hold the pin correctly. But it did / and does.

But just be mindful of them. Do a ride and check that they are still there. :)

Thanks fellas, good call on the loctite and cupping the C clip... I forgot, I did buy a tool with the small beak/pin tips to spread C clips apart... bought it to install the clip that holds my Rizoma oil cap in place.

This is a super easy job. The C-clips are very simple to get off even with a flat head screw driver. No compression of the spring is necessary.
Only thing i want to add is to cover the spring when you re-install it also, not just when you take it off.

Told you my close up vision wasn't good... lol... Those were NOT "C" clips with the small round holes on the ends of the clips. They are "E" clips. I tried using some channel lock C clip removers with the small pins on the tip of the pliers and I broke one of the E clips taking it off. No biggie, the shop had several spares.

As said above, a small flat head eyeglass screw driver works best for simply sliding the E clip off.

Yes, I wear "loupes", they're like $1700! I keep them at work in a case when not wearing, if I break them, I'm SOL and can't work til I get a replacement pair. Too expensive to keep a back up pair, lol.

Sorry if I led you down the wrong path. Once you mentioned e-clips, I totally remembered them as such. It was simply too long ago when I did the swap.
