    Anti-seize R75/5 questions

    Hey all,

    I was about to install new rear passenger pegs on my r75/5 and was wondering do these need copper anti seize on the threads?

    What is the general thoughts/rule of thumb about using copper anti-seize?

    Cheers!

    Jonathan

    Anti seize is more about situations with dissimilar metals...see the recent discussion about anti seize on spark plugs. As we also know, it's important on aluminum-aluminum joints like the exhaust finned nut and spigot. But steel on steel...pfft...can't see where that's even a consideration.

    Awesome. Thanks, Kurt. Will go through the spark plug discussion tonight when I get home from work.

    anti-seize on the footpegs just enhances the dangerous possibility of them coming loose or
    falling off the bike
