installing passenger footpegs

Appears there are a bunch of extra parts with my passenger seat and peg purchase. Anyone installed the pegs yet with the Honda parts? The parts diagrams online dont show these parts or they are hard to figure out where they go.

Might be spares...?
If you got the pegs on there, and they ain't falling off by looking at them, then I'd assume it's ok?

Well if everything is on and the pegs works as expected, I wouldn't worry about it.
You could for the heck of it just send them a mail about it and ask.

It was easy to remove them, putting them on with the spring & those little plates is the fiddly bit..

No, and I'm not sure how they go in.

They go in exactly as shown in the diagram. Put a dab of heavy grease on the plate (17) to hold it in the rear face of the mount.
Insert the spring (1) and ball (29) into the peg (13) and while holding the ball in, slide it into position in the mount, then fit the clevis pin (3), washer (25) and split pin (27). Repeat for the other side.

See below.



You also haven't fitted your pillion seat correctly if those are "left overs".

Pillion seat front attachments:



Pillion seat rear attachments:



I would strongly suggest that if you're not sure what you're doing, that you get a bike shop to do the work.

I was about to do something like that but you did a waaaay better job of explaining it. Nice

Mods so far;
Changed the brick to an oval tail light.
Replaced pillion seat and pegs with luggage rack.

Changed levers for 7 Click GP Adjustable Levers.
Changed the filler cap bolts to Red.
Added Grip Puppies foam covers.
Added left side swing arm bag made for Harley Sportster XL1200.
Added mesh screen in front of radiator (thanks to JimInOz for howto)
..more to follow..

Thanks for all the suggestions and pics. For anyone else doing this - there are 0 instructions in the package and it wasn't obvious to me until I looked at the diagrams (you guys provided here) for a while that the Honda diagram is for the left side. This pic doesn't show the very tiny, easy to lose interference pin in the kit that must be hammered into the main right mount which will positively anchor the swivel mount to the main footpeg mount so it can't move. I used a nail counter sink tool to get it into the swivel joint and then tightening down the nut on the main mount draws the pin into the main mount. After substituting a few times I realized which bolts went where which was also not obvious to me until I looked at it for awhile. But it's all good now.
JiminOz, I didn't come on here to have someone tell me to take it to a dealer. I came here since this was my first time doing this kit and wanted some advice and pics especially since the kit didn't come with any. Your last sentence was patronizing and unnecessary.
Much better would be a comment that I often see on other forums such as "come back here if you run into any problems" or something similar.
