Default Tips for removing factory shift peg and brake peg

Is there some trick or tip to remove the stock shift peg and brake peg on a Cross Country? I bought some replacement ones from Kury. The instructions say to just use a slip-joint pliers to twist the old ones off. Tried that but the rubber just rotates and looks like it is ready to rip and the peg itself doesn't start unscrewing. I'd rather not destroy the stock pegs.

Any constructive help appreciated.

Thanks,
Rob

One of mine came off pretty easy but it took vice grips for the other. They use some kind of white thread locker and it is some good stuff. Make sure you are turning them to the left and bite the bullet and damn the torpedo's. A heat gun could help but not sure about that, seems like it wouldn't hurt.
The Kury pegs are very nice, I have the extended ones on both sides and am enjoying them. Oh yea, when you get them off clean out the threads and use some blue lock tight, otherwise you may be having the same fight getting the new ones back on.

Good Luck

A good pair of vise grips properly adjusted and you should be good to go.

I recently did mine with a rag wrapped around peg for protection,(maybe use later) and VISE grips. Worked like a charm

I'll try the vise-grip idea today.

Thanks,

The vise-grip tip helped. I used two. The rubber of one of the pegs (the brake side was really tight) is slightly messed up, but nothing major.

Yup Vice Grips, they used thread locker on those things (mine anyway), so use a steady amount of serious force. Don't whale on it, slowly dial up the torque to bust those things loose.

It's a regular thread so, lefty-loosey ..
