In some of the pics of the 1999/2000 bikes I noticed what seems to be spacers on the pillion mounting pegs, forcing the pillions legs wider....(hmmm, might be a good thing for my wife). Does this happen on the 2001 models and how does if affect pilion comfort?

Mate, I have not had any complaints myself. They probably go out about an inch and a half further than the standard footrests, 2 inches tops !!
I can't see a pillion even noticing the difference. I used to keep my footrests and spacers under the seat hump but now I have them on the bike permanently.

What year is your bike Kevin?
|By Mr_Venjer on Tuesday, July 23, 2002 - 02:17 am:|
2001 RSVR. I bought the pillion kit off a guy on the web and had it fitted.
I'll tell you what, I'll get some pictures taken, hopefully today and post them on the web for you !

Thanks Kevin. Much appreciated for your help and feedback. Where are you based. I'm in Auckland, New Zealand. We have some dam fine back roads within 20-30 min of the city center and they make for some fun scratching. Plenty of tight twisties, long sweepers and the odd long high speed straights. But best of all, theres very few cops here and we seldom see them on the B roads. Not that I'd ever consider exceeding the draconian 100kph speed limit.

Boys, this is a joke.
|By Mr_Venjer on Thursday, July 25, 2002 - 03:20 am:|
Woo hoo ! I did it !
No comments on the dirty bike. I cleaned it yesterday so now its gleaming. Tally ho, off to Amsterdam I will go !!

Hey, does the pillion get a hot butt on the bike or melt their boots or wet weathers on the pipe?
|By Scottaride on Thursday, July 25, 2002 - 05:53 pm:|
Just in case "She who must be obeyed" reads this and takes offence, , I'd like to mention that she already has a hot Butt....and it looks nothing like this one

My pillion was very concerned about the widened position of the pegs. Turns out that she doesn't even notice though. If I had not mentioned it, she would probably never have known there was a change. The pipes to not get to hot for her either. This is on a Falco, mind.
|By Mr_Venjer on Wednesday, July 31, 2002 - 12:34 pm:|
Nah, no hot butts or melted anything. In fact my cous rode pillion yesterday in trainers and a tee shirt. And jeans before any pervs get on my case.
