Tried a search but results were mostly about relocation.

'15 DX, my exhaust side passenger pegs keeps falling down after riding. Not a big deal but is there a way to make the friction tighter? Require some shim in between?

Thee should be a spring holding the peg in place. It is part #8 in the attached picture. If it's there but just not holding just bend it a little. If its not there go to your local H-D dealer for replacement.

Alternatively, if you don't carry pillions, just remove them and save a few kg in weight!

Perfect, thanks. I did see that piece in there when I looked but didn't realize that's what it is.
Some of them are crap as in poor heat treatment so the springiness is none existant. Some rust way causing the same thing. What I've done a couple of times is custom grind a flat washer to give a friction fit when the pin is installed. My rear pegs and mounts are removed so don't have that issue any more.

I appreciate all of the responses. I don't ride 2-up so I could just remove, I'm just pissed that the backrest the previous owner put on is one that also has the luggage rack and I believe there are 3 sizeable holes drilled in the fender for those to install.
