Model RNT for your Honda NT700V uses our knurled pegs POINTING OUTBOARD, or you can attach a heavier peg by using our coupler nut. (see our web site to mount heavier pegs) CAUTION: DON'T DAMAGE THE SPRING!! (See #3)
* You will need two SAE Allen (Hex) Wrenches: (3/16” and 5/32”), a 7/16” end/box/socket wrench and a little grease (any grease will work).
* Most parts for the right and left are not interchangeable and are therefore marked with L or R. Get all the “L” parts separated from the “R” parts and begin working on one side of your bike.
1. Mount the BLOCK. The Block (about 2 x 2 x 2) has a large machined cut between two corners. The Clamp (which looks like a small dog bone treat) will be attached with the two 1.5” long mounting bolts. Remove the Clamp from the Block. One end of the large machined cut will have a round cut which will fit over the bottom end of your frame and fits over the engine bolt. Slide the Block down as far as possible and attach it there by placing the Clamp behind the frame and securing it with the two 1.5” mounting bolts. CAUTION: Be careful that you don’t pinch the wire that may run along the back side of the frame on the right (brake lever) side.
2. Mount the BRACKET. The Bracket (about 2 x 3/8 x 5) will come with the Cover (2x2) already attached. The Spring is inside the Cover. You will notice two Button Head Cap Screws in the block. You have a choice when mounting the bracket. To begin, if you need/want the most stretch/longest leg position, use the two button head cap screws to mount the bracket in the pair of holes that rotate the Bracket forward (to be about square with the Block). Shorter riders will want to mount the Bracket rotated back. It will be easy to switch later if you want to try the other position.
3. Mount the LEG & PEG. The Leg is about 1 x ¼ x10 with bends and a slight twist. The Peg is 4” long and 1” round (mostly hollow). One end of the Leg will have two small holes for the Spring. That end will go under the Cover. Remove the Cover by unscrewing the ‘pivot bolt’ in the center of the Cover. The lock nut on the back of the Bracket is there to provide the needed threads for the pivot bolt. With the Spring in the Cover, place the exposed end of the Spring into the small hole of the Leg. Choose the small hole that provides the least preload tension needed for our light weight peg or the hole that provides the most preload tension if you will be using a heavier peg. Pack grease in the Cover around the spring and put a coat of grease on the end of the Leg that will be under the Cover. Put the pivot bolt through the Cover and Leg. Mount the Cover and Leg to the Bracket. Only finger tighten the pivot bolt, then back it off 1/4 - 1/2 turn. Keep the Leg against the Cover so the Spring stays in the hole. Rotate the Cover to pre-load the Spring, (left side counterclockwise; right side clockwise) just enough to lift the Leg plus a little to be square with the Bracket. CAUTION: Turning the Cover another half turn will damage the Spring. The roll pins in the Bracket should fit into the holes of the Cover to hold it square. Do not over tighten the pivot bolt or you may have binding. Mount your Peg to the Leg using the peg bolt provided.
WARNINGS. As with most motorcycle accessories, misuse can be dangerous.
1. Mick-O-Pegs are not intended for use while following another vehicle closely or while leaning in curves.
2. Since the spring lifts the peg up, an aggressive tread on the riders boot may catch on the peg and increase reaction time. Test your Mick-O-Pegs many times before using them on the road. Before you ride, find the quickest method of returning your feet to your controls and get in the habit of using that method.
3. Mick-O-Pegs are habit forming. You may no longer be satisfied with any other highway peg/board position.
4. It is possible to get your pant leg caught on the Mick-O-Peg when in the up position. To reduce that likelihood, consider wearing a high top boot and/or tighter pants cuff.
