Well, thinking about the idea of throwing passenger pegs on my '04 WR450. Anybody done it?

And before anybody asks, I'm going to get the suspension redone anyways as I'm about 200 lbs before any gear. And my girl is only 84lbs, so it's not like I'd be throwing a big passenger on there.

Just curious as to anybody's experiments.

I know guys on here that have on a YZ426F for stunt purposes, so sure, it can be done. I did on mine, but I totally built a custom stunt subframe.

Oh yeah, I know it can be done. Hell, I was just thinking about putting on some of those clamp on type footpegs that they have for cruisers. Just wanted to see if anybody had done anything similar and how the bike had handled/performed with a passenger.

haha touché man but so long as your not doing crazy long rides with her I doubt you'll notice her much you just need to sit wayyy up on the tank like your racing it haha

I say go for it what's the worse that could happen? You realize its not comfy throw her on the back of your r1 and now have pegs to stunt with. Win win if I don't say so myself lol

The main reason I'm looking at this is because I'm actually contemplating selling the R1. I'm looking to buy a house in the near future, and it would be nice to have some extra cash plus the remaining balance on the bike off my credit. I just can't bring myself to get rid of the Sumo.

And Grim_Smoker - my girl does eat! She's 4'10", has 4 pack abs and an ass you can set a coke can on! She's just micosized :D

Someone had a post on advfmmfmmrider about it, but I've yet to try. I have the steel subframe, also (426) just need some welding gas...
