Sato Rearset Troubleshoot

Having trouble lowering the passenger pegs. Tried removing all of the bolts from the passenger pegs to extend them for passengers, no luck. I am assuming I have to hammer out the very small pin (which is the only thing remaining that could be holding it) to release it. I was wanting confirmation from someone who has owned a pair of these before I try and force the issue/break them.
Thanks

(Bolts are still in for pics)

DO NOT DRIVE OUT THAT "PIN"! Pics on the way. In the mean time, spray lube in the pinhole from both sides.

What I thought was a detent in the rear appears to be the end of the mounting bolt. However there are detents on the top and bottom that seat in the pinholes. I believe I hit it up with penetrating lube and a cheater after taking the pivot bolt out. I'm pretty sure the detents are spring loaded so you may want to skip taking out the pivot bolt. Mine didn't pop loose, but are quite dry and likely stuck.

There is no pin in those small holes. Just a couple balls with a spring between them.

Spray some lube in there...

andrewebay1 had the same issue when I sold mine to him... I never used them other than to secure saddlebag straps to. He got them working... send him a PM if you cant get them to work.

Lube Fixed It

Sure enough, drowned it in wd40 and pulled down. I now have working passenger pegs!
Thanks everyone!

I sprayed it down with triflow and freed it the next day. I then proceeded to take it apart which I ended up destroying the spring.

MR T81 bought them and they now reside in Canada.

Haven't found a new spring yet. I'm not looking really hard

I had the exact same problem with my Rizoma rear sets. Never did find a spring. I bought new passenger pegs instead. I have one spring from the old pegs. Somewhere?

Could you just call rizoma to order the spring?

I'll see if I can find their website and send them an email. Maybe I can get a couple springs for free, with a 30$ shipping cost.

Nope. I tried getting the complete rear peg assembly and was told they aren't available for the 919 anymore. I'm sure the sets are all the same but not 100% sure. I got some from our member efe, in Turkey. Even shipped from there was $30. From Sato, maybe.

Not to hijack but is there anyone else that makes rearsets for the 919? I usually don't ride a passenger. They have the weirdest setup I have ever seen with both pegs on one mount.

I was on the phone with Sato earlier, buddy was telling me that none of their passenger pegs use springs. I had to send him pics. Waiting to see if I can get springs directly from them...
