peg bracket
« on: October 05, 2016, 04:37:14 pm »
Well as in sure many have . I have joined them when it comes to breaking my peg bracket.
Too sharp mid turn and a small bump forced it off.
Most I have seen are around 60$ on eBay.
Any better solutions o out there?

Not that I'm aware.
The damage you see is what happened to me

Oh my God. You are lucky that the old repair didn't fail.

Nah Cal
That's just how badly I broke it... What you see is where I pushed out together for the picture

good.  thought somebody had used that metal epoxy and glued it back together!

BTW - check both sides regularly.  I found one of mine badly cracked and never knew I was standing on a time bomb!

If you know someone who welds aluminum it will weld up fine, AMHIK.

Better to have a broken peg than to have the bike go down.  :-\

If it's decent quality aluminum, it'll weld, but because the bolt hole is broke out too, there will be a lot of work there to get it usable again. Probably cheaper (if you have to pay for labor) to just replace it.

They weld up fine with someone who knows how to weld aluminum.
I didn't notice the second break at the mounting hole, I would replace it. The weld would be stronger than the base material but it would be tedious/costly to weld if you have to pay for it.
That's a peg lowering block I see in the pic? If you are scrapping pegs all the time...
