Now I have one highway peg ,but two highway pegs would be better ? I can't find the type of highway peg I have ? I am not really sure I want to have highway pegs like this.  This time I was lucky that I could remove the broken off part of the highway peg.

If did this again, I think I would  use a # 4 screw extractor and 1/4  inch left hand drill bit. Or just drill the stud out of the block and remove the bracket, even if you cant totally drill out the stud that is ok because it will be weakened enough to break the stud when you pull the bracket out. In my case the stud broke with only a 5/32 hole in it. However the stud seemed to me to be made of weak aluminum alloy other types of metal may not have the same characteristics. Fortunately I drilled the hole all the way through the block before I broke off the screw extractor. I was dumb and lucky. Next time I will not apply enough torque to break the screw extractor, back the screw extractor out before it breaks and drill the stud out.  :beerchug.

been following this on the sideline..
 :truce:

glad you got it sorted.... :great: :great: :beerchug:
when drilling out broken fasteners, always start with a small drill, right down the center of the broken fastener, then use progressively larger drill bits untill you are "almost" to the thinest cross section of the threads on the fastener that napped off... then use the largest
"E-Z Out" or remover, that will fit in the hole... never try to remove a broken bolt using an "E-Z Out" that is smaller than "half" the diameter of the bolt... drill bigger, use bigger tool...

I wouldn't want those pegs either, do away with that type... they always break stuff on a drop or crash...  worst ones break or crack the engine cases... ouch... >:(
