After modifying an 1800C Solo Seat to fit my 1300C, I've contemplated cutting off the rear peg mounts. I struggled with this idea, as it would be a permanent modification, short of welding them back on. A forum poster on another site suggested covering the mount and this is what I came up with...simple and CHEAP!

I went to Lowe's and bought a 4-pack of size 1 1/8" Rubber Chair Tips, which cost me $2.79.



Make sure you buy the rubber ones and not the hard plastic style.

It's very simple to remove the rear pegs on the VTX. Just straighten out the cotter-pin and remove the retention pin...save the parts by re-assembling them so they won't be hard to find if you decide to ride 2-up.



I cleaned the mount up a little, then just slid the rubber chair tip on, wiggling it back a forth a little...pretty easy, but not loose enough to vibrate off.



This was my final look and it's not very noticeable; looks almost like a safety stop on a crotch-rocket. You can see what I mean in the photo below...hardly noticeable.



Now all I have to do is chrome that swingarm...man, it really stands out!!!

I sure did, but I had to have some bling so I put one of those little plastichrome caps in the center. Again great job, I just couldnt see whacking them peg mounts off. ;)
