I need some help from the group. I had ordered a dual seat version of the 961, which I received except Norton forgot to install the rear pegs and brackets. So I have a dual seat with a single seat "frame". Now six months later I have finally received the parts for the rear pegs but I'm fairly confident it's not complete. Would anyone be willing to take some pictures of their rear peg mounting with a little detail so I can figure out what I am missing? All I received was 2 frame brackets and 2 aluminum pegs no mounting hardware of any kind, at minimum I would think I need rubber on the pegs that I don't have and rubber isolators in the mounting holes that I don't have.

Please understand I'm not asking for anyone to go to the hassle of disassembling theirs to show every little part but some good pictures that would let me show my dealer what would logically be missing would be extremely beneficial.

I know I'm not the best contributor to the group, I follow the old military logic that if I don't have anything constructive to add I should keep my cake-hole shut. I really enjoy this motorcycle but this type of thing is a little frustrating, come on Norton should be the experts on what is missing.

Well any help would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure what Norton sent you. but there are major differences in frames between mono and biposto (as far as rear pegs are concerned)

There are extra tube sets welded to the frame to support the rear peg mount. First picture below is single seater, second is the dual seater

Did they send some kind of bracket to mount to the frame to establish a new mount for the rear pegs.

Do not know if this is much help, but let me know if you need additional information, or more pictures from a different angle or detail

John, thanks those pictures help. This is what I received 2 Y shaped brackets and the pegs. No way to mount any of it. I appreciate the pictures since it helps me to see I'm not crazy and parts must be missing, there is no way for me to even mount the pegs to the provided brackets. I thought some of the hardware would be reused but even then there is a lot missing. I must say I'm more than a little surprised the dealer didn't notice this wasn't complete when they called me and told me they had finally arrived.

Guess I'm having another conversation with the dealer tomorrow.

It's funny when my motorcycle arrived it was missing the rear pegs and mounts, they didn't ship the cover or the rear stand that were to come with my motorcycle. So far the only thing I have received is the cover, still no rear stand and obviously this rear peg set up is incomplete. I guess I still have the motorcycle to ride so can't be too upset.

I now see what you have. These brackets are bolted to the frame In the case of the monoposto, the brackets appear to be used to mount the silencers. In the case of the biposto they not only mount the silencers, but the additional tubes welded on the ends are for the rear peg mounts

I am not sure, but I don't think this is a major change over. You would have to unbolt the silencers, them unbolt the bracket from the frame. The small welded tabs are for the master cylinder mount of the rear brake (right side) and the gear shift/front peg support on the left side. All the bushings you should need will be in the brackets you remove

I do not know your mechanical skill level, but this does not look like a difficult job. This should be a dealer warranty job, but you may not be near a dealer. Anyway, it looks to be a simple job to change, but would take a couple of hours

Looks like just a couple of things missing . First , no rear foot peg rubbers and the long bolt/boss that secures them to the new hangers. That's it , Everything else you reuse .

Thanks everyone for the help. Installing them shouldn't be hard at all but with the missing hardware and rubber I wanted to be sure I wasn't missing anything else. Need to get with the dealer to see about getting the remainder needed.

Thanks for all the help.

You waited 6 months. That would have seriously pissed me off. May I ask why you accepted the bike like that? Sounds like a distance issue to me. All the best with the conversion. I wish I had a biposto. The bike is a chick magnet! 8)
