I got them in the mail today (thanks to another member) but my front motor mounts are aftermarket ESR
and have a couple questions
1 how do you bolt the peg part to the frame it wont fit the stock bolts through the sleeve and none came with it
and 2nd one was does anyone have any pics of these things mounted to an 86/87 frame Im sure Im gonna have to drill through the front mounts ,
and I already know that ac has a bad rep for things fitting right and always need a tweeking but how much of a pain is this gonna be
any help in this would be great because these look alot nicer than stock pegs and the dg nerfs that I had on it

Trying to think ?, those ESR front mounts are threaded inside where they bolt to the frame, right, bolt dont go all way through.

Best I can think, you'll need to drill through the front hole in the ESR engine mount & then make a short spacer to go between the nurf & the ESR mount.
Since no spacers came with them, all you need to make some is a short piece of 1/2" round aluminum rod, cut to the right lenght & drill a 5/16th hole through it, that is if my thinkings right.
Another thing you might want to do after you get them mounted all up, drill a 1/4" hole through the tube where your foot will be & put a bolt & lock nut through it to hold the nurfs from comming off the mounting tube.
You put enough foot presure sideways on the nurf peg & it could push the nurfs off that mounting tube & then the nurfs are just dangling.

I had all that in mind thanks Neil and your right about how they bolt up ,but my question on the plate that bolts to the frame for the pegs ,its got 2 holes and the main tube that holds them on is 6inches long and you can barely fit a bolt in it let alone a bolt and socket

it came with the little hardware (spacers,washers bolts/nuts for the removable pegs),
but peg part of the operation
it came with 1 allen head bolt that fits the threads on the foot pegs part of the frame but it only came with 1 ,and I have no idea how you would get an allen wrench in there and torque it down
so Im wondering what the remedies are to that

I guess what you'll need to do is get a 3/8s drive socket head that has the allen bit made into it, I would tape it all together though so it wouldnt come loose from the extention inside that tube.
Craftsman has those allen bit sockets in a host of sizes, be alot cheaper than Snapon to.

you'll need the correct hex/allen bolts...

& I used a tie down strap to pull/tweek the bars into place ,also I drilled/added 2 holes for bolts where the tubes meet under the front of motor /pipe to help secure the nerfs


I may have pics

here is a pic of the nerfs that were on the quad i got for my son. they dont mount up front using the engine mounts as yours(older style?) they have a u-bolt type that secures the cross piece to the frame. the pegs however mount the same as you describe and usies an allen head for the lower bolt. hope this helps any.

my main concern was the allen bolt being strong enough,
and since there was only the 1 I wasnt sure
these are brand new in the box so I dont think there that old
I thought the ones with the U bolts were old thats the type I have had on all my quads but either way old style ,new style ,they just gotta go on :D

Now your saying it only has one bolt to hold that adapter tube to the frame, not a flat piece welded to the tube so you can mount with two bolts.

I can tell you whats going to happen, even if a grade 8 bolt is used. If only one is used, will break first hard jump you get to.
Buddy of mine didnt have those adapter tubes & made some that used only one bolt mounting, trail riding & first ditch he got to left side broke & nurf was dangling after that. Hes since then welded a flat piece to the tube for two bolt & hasnt had a problem.

no no ,it has 2 spots for bolts on each peg but 1 of those spots has the 6" tube and wasnt sure if the 1 allen head bolt was the 1 or not, on the top of the bolt it says 12.9 ( i think thats the strength but also unsure)
but like I said it only came with 1 and I need 4 (or 3 more)
in the begining I wasnt sure if the allen bolt was the right 1 because there was only the 1 bolt in the bag

what neil is saying is true ...when mine broke I went up 2 metric sizes on the bolt / thread size & used grade 8 bolts .. & so far ( 3 yrs later) no more breakage !!

I dont disagree with what Neil or you are saying 1 bolt is not enough (clearly)

but mine has 2 on each peg I wasnt sure about the allen head being the correct bolt now that I know this is the right bolt I wont have any problems

I said it had 1 allen bolt in the bag of loose bolts, and wasnt sure if that was right ,because it was a sealed bag and only had 1 of the 2 required to fit in the tube that the nerf slides over ,
but I guess that just goes to show 1 more way AC will screw ya

86 quad R thanks for the pics
and Neil for the spot on info on the ESR front mounts

I have the same nerfs as you, on 2 86's I have over here, and I used the stock oem peg bolts. They use a 14mm socket, I used a 3/8 inch drive, with a long extender, and it fit in that tube fine. DId you have the stock oem Bolts that had on your oem pegs?

I dont have the OEM bolts ,but I just tried to get the 14mm socket in the tube and it dont fit in the tube ,
the 13mm and the 1/2 inch do but not the 14

maybe try and go to a hardware store, and find a bolt with a 13mm head, that will fit the threads on the frame
