Passenger Footpeg Removal

Question for all:

Is it possible to remove the passenger foot pegs brackets and reinstall the pannier rack mount point with out any modifications?
I looked at it quickly last night and wonder if it will require a spacer to replace the foot peg bracket depth?
Thanks in advance.

Mark.

I'm not clear on what you want to achieve. Why do you need to remove the passenger footpegs?
Are you referring to the standard vario case mounts or a different set of racks.

I have replaced the passenger seat with a pillion plate so I won't be needing the passenger foot pegs either.
My passenger foot peg brackets do not have the rubber insert for the Vario cases since I have a GSA.

I took mine off:


Left side comes off with no issue but you do have to remove the muffler to get to those footpeg bolts. No big deal, though.

Thanks Mike.
Like you said, the left came off with no issues. I added 1/2 steel bushings to replace the gap.
I will tackle the right side today.
