Broken right foot bracket
« on: July 26, 2017, 07:51:17 pm »
Basicly i need help replacing the right foot bracket (not just the foot peg)  sadly I dropped my connie being new to riding and the peg bracket took all the weight... as I struggled to prevent the fairing from touching cement.....  might have been already damaged before its day 3 of owning  it and the previous owner admitted to a full drop. But I was so in love with the bike i figured (father in law is a mechanic with a shop but im embarrassed to ask, he rides too) that i could fix anything there. Anyway back to the point 98 connie, right front peg. Any assistance or links to something would be super helpful. Thank you! -mike

 When you get the part you need take a chose look at how the
peg folds up. You will notice the peg hits the bracket (the part bolted to
the bike) and will not fold any further. If you have your father in law
grind the peg so the radius is completed the peg will fold up further
and you may not brake it next time you drop it. Do both sides.
Don't tell father in law where you got this idea, he will think you are
smarter and more observant.

and while you are doing the one side - take apart the opposite side and check for cracks!  scary to think you might stand on a cracked peg assembly while going over a rough spot!

point is I did find a cracked peg mount!  no idea how long it had been that way.

That's no bueno.....reminds me when I had a girl on the back of my 86. A few days later I was doing a pre-trip inspection and found that one of the passenger foot pegs had like a fraction of one bolt thread in, and the other had fallen out..  :o

I've never heard of the bracket breaking and not the footpeg too.
Clean up and examine your footpeg very carefully... good luck!

Ride safe, Ted

It's not as bad as it looks. Remove the two bolts fastening your rear brake master cylinder to the footpeg bracket Remove the bottom bolt located under the brake lever, remove the upper bolt located between but above the rear brake master cylinder. The footpeg bracket can be removed from the bike at this time. You can now pull the clevis pin and remove the master cylinder clevis pin. If you need to separate the 2 pieces which make up the bracket assembly, remove the 2 bolts on the back side of the footpeg bracket."

Cuz i feel seriously crippled out there trying to learn with only front brake at the ready and a back brake a look away from the road to find my footing. So minus the shameful ride home the driveway loop i made the next day to keep my cofidence shes been sitting there waiting for a new bracket. :(

Mike, you can remove the lower front bolt from the bracket and replace it with a longer bolt.
That longer bolt will work as a temporary foot peg....

When you do the install, grind/clearance the footpeg so that it can pivot all the way up.
In stock form it binds. Grind away the material where it binds.
The grinding will make it less likely to break if you drop it again.

So you installed a new mount..ntheat works, what's that peanut butter slathered on your muffler...?
Just joking.
Pull both pedals and grind the mounts so they will fold up during futur "bike naps". ... do it now, don't wait... its a necessary pre emptive protection, and you'll never buy another mount.. well... hopefully.... :great:
