rear pegs....take them off or leave on

I dont want any passengers so is there any other reason to leave them on? Will it look better?

take them off to shed off a few ounces of weight. Unless you carry someone with you or want to use them as frame sliders I think they ruin the lines of the bike.

Mine are off and I don't have a rear cowl

You can sit passengers on it, but riding would be interesting to say the least

That's one of the first things I did was pull mine off. Any woman that wants to ride can go buy her own.

frame sliders only

They can protect the rear plastics considerably.
