Rear Footrest Replacement on SV1000 - June 18, 2007, 08:58 AM

I recently installed a Holeshot Highmount exhaust on my SV1000S. I kept the footrests on since my girlfriend likes to ride with me. I don't like the way the rear footrests look with the unused exhuast hangers. I thought about plugging the holes, I found a couple places that sell polished plugs to fill it. That would look better than an empty hole, but I think it would look even better if it wasn't there at all. Does anyone know if the rear foot rest, from any of the bikes with undertail exhuasts, or anything without hangers on the footrest, will fit on the SV?

Are you opposed to just cutting them off? A few people on the svrider board just grind them off with a dremel or angle grinder. It's just a couple of minutes worth of work, and you don't have to buy new ones.

I've thought about that, but only if it comes down to it. I'd like to keep the stock ones as a back up, incase I ever need to swap back to stock, or if I decided for some reason to change to a regular mount exhuast.
