Alex, don't worry about your English. It's much better than most of us can do in Russian. But a purely innocent question. What is a "moose test?"  The reason I ask is that one of our members got in a confrontation with a real moose a few years ago and the moose stomped both he and the bike.

6mm bolt and jam nut cost about what, maybe $1.50. Bank Sensor :)) . How about "Close to crash" sensor? Or footpeg protector. or "Yeah, you the man" indicator?

Its exactly about real moose like situation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moose_test   when you run about 40-50mph then you realize danger ahead (in training its red cone line) start intense breaking and then evade another cone line. More details in wiki.

Going 40 around a 10mph hairpin will scrape them every time. :))

I had to replace one too.  I call it the "I'm a dumbass and need to have better body position" sensor.  better position, less scrape!

Better yet, buy Titanium bolts, and use a lock nut...
They throw a 6 foot stream of sparks off behind when you grind them... impressive...
Very popular with us Z bike riders from the 70's & 80's...
My brother worked for a company that used a lot of Titanium, and he would give me scrap pieces by the handfull, we would make toe caps for our boots out of it...
Looked crazy cool doing the main street drags at night.... "here, hold my beer, and watch this...." kinda thing.... :beerchug: :beerchug: :motonoises: :motonoises: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

You can also screw a set screw into the peg, and add one of these...making them replaceable...

BANK SENSOR: Noun, b-a-nk sen-sor.    A motorcycle footpeg mounted device designed to respond to the physical stimulus of friction with the road surface and transmitting the resulting impulse through the peg, boot, foot, and leg in order to initiate rapid constriction of lower abdominal muscle groups as they are notified of exactly how nearly they are approaching a sudden visit to the nearest financial institution in order to procure funding for the purchase of replacement parts... and undergarments.
