Also forgot to mention that i had to remove the number plate and now it wont go back on due to being too wide for the bracket. Not ideal as i will now have to trim the number plate down.

There should be two holes in the bracket, they should match up with two holes that are under the number plate. If there are no holes then you will have to drill two, I did not have to. I put the number plate on top of the bracket. I put counter sunk head screws to hold the bracket in place, less head sticking out and lets the plate sit lower.

Yeah there are 2 holes, I thought that was the best thing to do, just need to get a couple and job done.

Hi Slappy
What size were those thumb screws you used, as I like the look of those and as one of the cheap ones broke I want to replace with something more suitable.
Cheers

Thanks Slappy,

You've answered my question about removing the footpegs (Introductions, Dec 23). However, I thought I would wait to see if my wife liked them before cutting them off. We went for a ride yesterday and she found them really uncomfortable. Also I found it awkward having to put my leg round hers when stopping (getting one's leg over on a scooter now has a whole new meaning). After removing the footpegs, I might get brackets welded onto them and fit them in a better position. Talking about crash bars saving damage, when I had a scooter in my youth, I fell off twice, the first time on diesel oil and the second time, we crashed badly because I was kissing the passenger while riding home after a night in the pub. Still, it was 1962, no breathalyzer and things were different then.

Hi Slappy

Received the thumb screws and they fitted easily and look so much better than standard ones they come with. Thanks for all your help and effort it is much appreciated.

I am so glad that this forum is here everyone is really helpful
