Height 6ft 1in Weight 98kg si­mon.relph@mo­tor­cy­cle­news.com I had a spare five min­utes and I had been mean­ing to fit a new pair of SW Motech Evo footrests (£119.69) that not only give bet­ter sup­port and com­fort, but also of­fer 36 po­si­tions for that op­ti­mum fit. Now, about that five min­utes, I had eaten into it just se­lect­ing the tools for the job, then I dis­cov­ered to get the right­hand peg off, the rear brake arm has to be re­moved, and to top it off ev­ery­thing is spring-loaded. Go­ing back to­gether is the easy bit - make sure you have a screw­driver slightly smaller than the foot­peg mount­ing pin, insert the pin one way and the screw­driver the other to help guide the pin through the spring. All done in more like 45 min­utes than five.
