Removing rearsets - May 16, 2009, 06:14 PM

At the risk of sounding like a newbie or possibly reinventing the wheel (i promise I searched this topic first). I would like to get all the regulars powdercoated, levers, rearsets and rear brackets/pegs on my '06 GSXR1k. I am wondering if the majority of bike's rearsets are installed with loctite. Should I expect to have issues (stripping possibly) when removing them? Will the tools provided with the bike suffice? Anything I should keep my eyes open for while removing or reinstalling the pieces above?

Thanks in advance.

You'll be fine. I don't remember if there is locktite or not, but they'll come off ok with what you have. A look at the threads will tell you if there was, and if so, use it again. I'm a sucker for a torque wrench, but you can just put em back on "good-n-tight".

well supposedly Colemans put red loctite on one of my rearsets when I got hit and the car bent the bracket into the bike. Never found that out however until sometime later when I was getting a new exhaust put on and the rear set wouldn't come off...at all.

I do but blue loctite on as much as possible. I was riding one day and one of the bolts on the rearset bracket backed out and fell into the street. I didn't notice until I went to shift and the shift lever hit me in the shin. I ended up having to remove the rear peg bolt and put it in until I could go buy another bolt.

What do you value more? Life or Image?
