Because I need to stand on my left peg to hike my leg over the seat I wear out a peg about every year with my foot rotating on the rubber step. I've been buying them at the local Honda dealer, but this time I ordered it from Partzilla- part # 11-50661-MCA-305. As a matter of fact, I just received it in the mail today....cost me between $7-$8 vs. about the $16 I was paying at the dealer. Yes you do have to pay for shipping, but I got a clutch bushing and switch which I needed also so even with all that the shipping was very minimal.


If you order it there be aware your check out will say "need 2 pieces"....you have to edit it if you want only one side or you will get and pay for two.

ps: I refuse to do the stupid looking goat hop in the parking lot when mounting so I swing my leg up over the rear seat like mounting a horse....much easier on my tender hamstrings lol

From previous post....ps: I refuse to do the stupid looking goat hop in the parking lot when mounting so I swing my leg up over the rear seat like mounting a horse....much easier on my tender hamstrings lol

Agree, but if you have a back rest, the goat hop seems necessary. Try as I might, I can't get my leg over that back rest, but then, I've had a hip replacement and that's a range of motion problem.

I have a good friend who must do the "stupid looking goat hop" because he has an artificial leg. Sorry that offends you.

Well, you are trying to make an issue out of a non-issue and I'm actually the one sorry you take offense to what I said. I believe it really is easy to see what I was saying and not pointing it at any one individual who might be disabled. I will never claim to be on the politically correct side of the line and never will even attempt that. Because it's a complete non- issue this is my last comment regarding this.

bikerbillone.....I too have a backrest on the seat and by standing on the left peg it makes it easier to swing the leg over. Are you trying to stand on the ground when mounting or on the footpeg. I cannot get my leg up and over either unless I use the footpeg. I grab the handlebars and actually lean forward considerably while swinging the leg over as I have a sciatica nerve issue in my back and what's called the piriformis muscle/ nerve problem....makes the right hip hurt considerably.

I am able to swing my leg over the seat just fine, but started using the stand on foot peg method years ago simply because in my opinion it's easier and safer, use whatever method u prefer
