Gather the tools you will need:

  • 13 mm wrench
  • 10 mm wrench
  • 4 mm Allen wrench
  • Torque wrench
  • Nitrile gloves (optional)

I. Install the foot pegs

  1. Pass a split washer and then a flat washer onto one of the foot peg bolts.

  2. Ensure the foot pegs are oriented so that they fold upward. 

  3. Press the foot peg against the mounting point while inserting the bolt.

  4. Use a 13 mm wrench to tighten the bolt. Torque to 20 Nm.

  5. Fold the peg up and out of the way.

  6. Repeat steps 1–5 on the other side of the bike.

II. Install the wheel skirts

  1. Remove the protective film from each side of both wheel skirts. On one side, the film is opaque; on the other side, the film is clear.

  2. Position the shorter skirt on the right side of the bike (the side with the chain): The skirt goes between the rear wheel and the bike's frame. The largest hole on the skirt should fit over the foot peg bolt, with the remaining three holes aligning with the mounting points on the frame.
    NOTICE: Use caution to avoid touching the chain, as the oils in your skin can damage it. Or just wear Nitrile gloves while working on or near your bike chain.

  3. Pass a bolt through a mounting point and the wheel skirt, and then install a washer onto the bolt end. Thread a lock nut onto the bolt end by hand and tighten partway. Repeat with the other three mounting points.

  4. Repeat steps II. 3 to install the second, longer skirt on the left side of the bike.

  5. Use a 10 mm wrench and a 4 mm Allen wrench to tighten all of the mounting point bolts for the wheel skirts. Torque to 4 Nm.

III. Install the elevated rear seat

  1. Align the four mounting points on the bottom of the seat with the four mounting points on the rear rack.
