Hi Scout Rider's,

I have pillian pegs on my scout and I'm after peg guards to protect the exhaust from being tarnished from the boots.

any suggestions on retrofitting guards please?

Welcome Janks.  This is a good forum.  Hmm, suggestions for pillion pegs on a Scout. . . take them off!  ðŸ˜‰

Hey Janks, are you referring to one of these?

If so, I think that was included in the purchase of your passenger footpegs.  This is the description on Indian's website for the Scout passenger footpegs - "Passenger Pegs, Mounts, Heel Guards, Installation Hardware & Instructions"

Are your pegs aftermarket or Indian genuine?

I only recently fitted the passenger pegs to my Scout, and I can confirm  V-Twin’s comment above that the heel guard is included with the OEM kit - optional if you fit it or not.

I took a quick look online and I did see an “unboxing” of a genuine pillion peg set that didn’t include the guard - it was back in 2015 and so perhaps something has changed with time.

Attached is a photo of the front page of the installation instructions that came with the genuine set I ordered. Part number is 2882251 and it came with the guard included. 

Possible there are two parts numbers - one with and one without? 🤷‍♂️

It will either be a mistake (manufacturer forgot to stick one in the box OR the packaging was open and the part taken out/fell out) OR Polaris added the heel guards later on (based on customer feedback?).  Have a chat with your dealer and let us know what they say?

🤔 Hmmm... looks to be superceeded part number Janks.  The only reference I found for that part # appears on Indian website advertising the Scout passenger seat and in the description, it says pegs sold seperately.  I should also say, just because the pegs have new part #, I wouldn’t assume your set didn’t come with the heel guard.  It could just be due to supplier change.

Does anyone with Scout + Passenger Pegs missing the Heel Guard?  Especially members with older Scouts... please chip in and help out a new member.

When I bought my Scout 60 in 2016 I asked for pillion seat and pegs. There were no guards.

I've got them on the For Sale section but if people are expecting guards there's some disappointment ahead. 😟

Definitely seems like the guard has become part of a more recent released pillion peg set.

I had the same experience as Dr Shifty - ordered the passenger seat and rear pegs when I purchased the Scout from the dealer in 2016. No heel guards were fitted - I didn’t know any better at the time. Not sure if it was just the dealer not fitting them or if there were no heel guards at that time.

There were no guards included in October 2016 when my dealer installed my passenger seat and pegs. This thread is the first time I've heard of them.

Thank you everyone for assisting our new member.  It appears Scout LE MKIII is spot on.  Earlier passenger pegs didn’t come with the heel guards and Indian revised pegs with guards in later models.

Coming back to Janks question... looking at the above diagram, ‘Passenger Footpeg Support’ or the bracket needs two holes for the ‘Passenger Foot Guard’ to be attached.  Janks, does your bracket have those two holes?

This is interesting... Next time we're out having lunch and someone changes the topic of the discussion, do we ask them to move to their own table to discuss their topic? lol

People take things far too seriously.

Hi guys,
have 2016 scout with crusher exhaust and have the complaint from my better half about the heat on her foot above the exhaust, not to mention the melted rubber on there from the bottom of her shoes. Was at the dealer in brizzy other day, didn't have time to ask as had truck parked in loading zone waiting for some lunch from couple doors down and noticed on newer models was a framework at back of the peg so the pillion could rest their foot without touching the exhaust. Is this a new thing on current models or something can be fitted. From the brief look I had and compairing to mine I would have to get a new peg mount altogether to accomodate the frame behind it. Any info be a great help as would definately fit this to my scout. Mind you have to go back to the dealer before too long would love a run on chief classic am sure I could strip one of them down to look fantastic but would have to keep the scout as well.
