    Compatible foot pegs and pedals

    Hi guys,

    I've lost both of my right and left foot rests and pedals. No idea where they are, the bike has been in parts for almost a decade so a few parts got lost in the matrix.

    Last picture I got of it

    So, I was wondering, is there any other system from an other (if possible widespread) bike that is a direct bolt on?
    I can't easily find an original replacement where I live, so I have to get creative.

    Hopefully there is an other bike with a compatible system, I suppose the main issue it the dimension between the two screws?
    Otherwise I'll have to make one myself, but I'd really like to avoid that if it isn't absolutely necessary.

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

    if you're looking for footpegs there are hundreds of cheap crap chinese pegs that will bolt on ez or might need some filing. best to stick with honda parts, choosing pegs from cbr600 or vfr for example. in my opinion the oem hawk stock pegs look unecessarily big and bulky, too big for the bike, so i use hawk passenger pegs in front.

      Thanks mate,
      But now I have a doubt, my English isn't great so I'll just try to make sure we are on the same page: when I talked about the foot pegs I was actually talking about the whole assembly as you can see it on the picture here above (which is, ironically, missing the actual foot peg, I just realized it). I'm not sure how this is called in English, maybe foot peg bracket?
      What I'm missing is everything you can see on the picture, the whole aluminum structure, plus the links to the gearbox and the rear brake.

      So just to make sure, do you mean that the whole assembly from a CBR 600 will fit instead of this one?
      That'd be awesome

      Thanks and really sorry for the confusion

        brackets from mid-90's cbr900 look better than hawk and fit perfectly.

          The left side 900rr bracket will need about 10mm of spacing to clear the swingarm.

            Turns out the cbr900 is even more rare than the Hawk here...
            But the good news is that I might have found an original set from the scrapyard. Plus it isn't very expensive, just about 40 bucks.
            That's the last part I need to get the bike running again, can't wait !

              A few years ago, I put FX CNC adjustable rearsets on both my '89 Hawk and '03 Bandit 1200. I've been very happy with both sets. They are available on eBay for just over $100.

              The rearsets for the CBR 600 RR will fit the Hawk, with a little modification. I had to use a few washers to move the left set out so that the lever didn't foul the linkage. I replaced the provided linkage with one that was a little longer in order to get the pedal in the right place for me. I also had to slightly slot the right side, where the foot guard mounts, to get the brake cylinder to fit. A small, round file did the job in only a few minutes.

              I'll take a couple of pictures when I get home and post them here.

              CORRECTON: the CNC rearsets I put on my Hawk were for a mid '90s CBR900RR.

                  With these rearsets, you cannot use the stock brake light switch. The pressure activated switch that came with the rearsets I put on my Bandit 1200 stopped working soon after installation. I replaced it with a Goodridge "Banjo Bolt with Built-In Brake Light Pressure Switch." The optional Goodridge rubber boot to cover the banjo bolt is cheap insurance against wet weather. The switch that came with the Hawk's rearsets is still working.

                    I almost bought this rearset as it was available for the BROS here, but the description said "modified lift pedals" which I thought was a different system than the original one.
                    Me being a noob and this bike being intended for me to learn the basics, I thought it'd be better to stick with the original hardware.
                    But good to know that I can just swap these later if I want to, they do look good

                    Hopefully I should receive the rearsets in a day or two

                      Or mod with a countersunk screw will give you necessary clearance to the swingarm too...

                        I think rvf400 also fits or?

                          The NC30/NC35 is 72mm whereas the Hawk is 78mm.

                            I think "modified lift pedal" refers to the different set up for the rear brake cylinder, especially the stock switch. Regardless, going with stock will definitely work.

                            Congratulations on the bike, and good luck. As you already know, there is a lot of good information here, and good people who will help. You're going to love your new obsession!

                              IMO stock or Tyga, woodcraft, WW's/Erics, are the way to go .

                              The stock ones are cheap and i dont think another bikes stock rear-sets work/look any better on a hawk than the hawks and if you want something better, the aftermarket ones are SO MUCH BETTER that they are well worth the $$$$. . IMO.
                              Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.
