I have to replace the left side of my protek rear set.



I just need to replace the left peg and the shifter (think it's bent) on my '97 GSX-R 750.

Anyone know if I can get cheaper replacements than $51.20 direct from protekk?

you "think" it's bent. Better make sure before you buy new parts. You realize you can jsut heat up the shifter with a torch and bend it back with a set of pliers. Wrap a towel around it before you use the pliers and it won't leave a scratch. You can also straighten the footpeg to a small degree...

Ummm... that's not your bike is it? That's not a 97 750...

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Actually my shifter is just bent, I'll try heating it and bending it carefully w/ a towel and some pliers.

However the peg was snapped and has to be replaced. I'll try calling Chris from http://www.ccpperformance.com/ and Dwayne from Cycle Concepts for the replacement peg since they're more likely to give a discount for gixxer.com member, which fucking rules


No that is not my bike, wish mine was that polished though


Thanks a lot for the great advice, I really appreciate it!

call Chris (owner) and he will hook you up since you are a gixxer.com member
