Well here we go my first post and its a i dropped her post. Pulled up to a stop sign average speed had my left leg down. I'm almost to a complete stop and my front tire rolls over a piece of grave and slides to the left. Well the bike leans to the right and I'm trying to stop the fall but its to late these connies are like tall trees the fall hard and not much of a way to stop em. Long story short I folded the mirror back ,cracked a lower faring screw mount and broke the right front foot peg bracket. Well i haven't had time to read all of the mods done so far wish i had read the foot peg mod. I don't understand why they even put a spring on the front peg if it wont breakaway enough for a lay down. Any assistance in locating a used or new bracket would be greatly depreciated. Jeff

Jeff, CDA0301  Display it with pride.  There's a link in the FAQ to print out a CDA sticker if you wish.    I agree it is a bad design.  Grinding down the peg so it folds up more will help.  Also I highly recommend the tip-over bars.   I just have the fronts on and it already saved me on my second drop.  Oh, I moved your post from the C10 chat section to here with the rest of our proud droppers!  Greg H from Mass, Connie Droppers Anonymous Awards Dude  COG# 7010,a Tracey  CDA 120 (2.0)  99 Connie "Herrin Christabelle", 05 Ninja 250
