I didn't realize that the rear pegs are installed at the dealer. This now makes more sense.

And I don't care what you guys say, it is NOT OK for a $20K bike to be falling apart less than 50 miles in. Looks like the factory bolts already have some sort of loctite, I don't understand why the dealer wouldn't have used it on these.

As many of the original members know, I was the guy who got Randy to sign up this company into the US for the first time. Since then I have outfitted my ENTIRE bike with their Bolts, Nuts, etc etc - and know several other members who have done the same - after receiving a good discount with my help of course!

BellissiMoto - PROTI Fully Forged Titanium Fasteners for Racing

IMHO- they are superior to Pro-Bolt due to their build process and more. I understand the colors are more limited, but what they offer are the primary colors for most of us anyway. I still remain in contact with the VP of the Company (Sherwood) and must give credit where due. This gear is total eye candy!

Matter of fact- I believe I still have a few boxes of odds and ends in the garage with the rest of all my OEM parts if anyone is seeking anything specific? I know for a fact I have Rear Wheel Nuts in a few colors (Titanium) so ping me if interested.

Gunny Out.

I guess it depends on your idea of falling apart. To me, two bolts isn't falling apart. Tighten them/replace them and move on. It's not drama unless you make it drama.

I see the OP rides a Harley. I don't know why this loose bolt thing is such a shock to him.

First time I ever rode with a guy on a Harley, the brake fluid reservoir cap came off during the ride and leaked brake fluid everywhere. Now that I would classify as a problem.

So does anyone know if I take off the rear pegs, can I reuse the same bolts for the heat shield, or do you need shorter ones? Without the pegs, it looks as if the bolt will go in the frame an extra 3/8" or so (thickness of peg mount), not sure if there would be any interference there.

I saw someone say to use the m8x30 bolts for the pegs, which is what I assume I have?
I also looked at the parts diagram and am not seeing the bolts on there.

Also I bought that Harley 3 years ago, also new, and nothing has fallen off it yet. Surprisingly...

And I owned a 916 for 10 years and nothing ever fell off that.

If you are referring to the passenger/pillion pegs my first question would be why were they installed in the first place?
I don't know of any female that would ride on the tiny excuse they call a rear seat in the first place!
Unless she was very young and tiny (and relatively stupid) LOL
There is just not enough room to ride back there and be comfortable..

The Panigale simply was not designed for a rear passenger. I am sure the factory included the rear seat mainly for insurance purposes and call it "passenger ready" I left my passenger seat and pegs in the box..

My wife 5'7'' and in good shape and she took one look at the rear seat and said NO WAY i'm riding on that thing! .. LOL

Although she loves to ride on the back of my 2013 ZX14..

no idea man, they had a 2016 1299 and a 2016 1299S in the showroom. Both had passenger pegs on them. I guess it's something they do there.
