Hello out there,

Just wanted to introduce myself: I am twentyfive years old and come from "the Ruhrgebiet" in Germany. I studied social work but as this time i work as an educator in a kindergarden.

I am very new to riding, got my license last tuesday and my Rebel 500 on thursday. But i read this forum multiple times before i were allowed to drive ;)

Very pleased so far with the Rebel. Was driving a Suzuki Gladius in driving school, but i dont miss the power, the Rebel is fine. By car, i like driving on very low rpms, but I think for the breaking-in process i shouldnt ride it too low nor too high, right?

I just want to ride it every day! =) Today, i plan to dismount the passenger seat and the foot pegs. Does this work with the board tools?

With the best greetings,
Kradmelder

Hey there, welcome!

Yes, in general, ride it like you would any other day. Don't baby it, don't abuse it, keep it in the middle ;)

You'll probably need a better set of the same tools provided with the bike, for the sake of making things a little easier on you. But you'll need a tool not provided with the bike to be able to remove the passenger peg on the exhaust side.

Partly bad, partly hard to work with compaired to decent tools.
As an example, I've allready broken the tip of the screwdriver due to poor quality, so...

Yeah, you'll only be able to remove the peg itself, and not the whole bracket. You'll need a wrench to remove it.

Heh, well I live in our Oil Capital, pretty much the most expensive place there is in Norway.
