A lil boo boo.. is this hard to fix, replace or just weld again.

I had welded previously. I was changing the brakes had the bike sitting on a cinderblock and sure enough it fell over only bent the rear set barely, tried to pull it back out just a hair and it busted on the weld. should i reweld it again or is it that big of a deal to pull it all apart.

grind the old weld out plus a little extra into the base metal and re weld it.

well if you are married that seems like a great excuse to tell the wife you need aftermarket rearsets

Ebay should yield stock foot controls for cheap.

motormouth is an unknown quantity at this point
I just installed the coerce rearsets on my '99 . I got them for $400 shipped to my door . It sounds like a lot but the shifts are more positive and there is no slop in the shift linkage like the stock stuff . Plus they are very stylish and you can order replaceable parts for them .




I used a floor jack and a 2' X 4' , jacked up the bike underneath the oil pan just enough to take weight off the swingarm and removed the swingarm pivot bolt . You may need some extra washers from your local Hardware store to complete the install as well .

I needed a brake pedal, so I got bought one from ebay that was attached to a bracket that was broken much like yours. If you want the broken bracket, you may have it for shipping which would be $8.70. PM me if you want it - thank you. JB

That weld is not stock... I am not sure how weldable these are as it's cast material. If anybody has had success I'd be interested to know. Looks like OP has a set that were successfully welded...?

Die cast aluminum is not a big deal to weld. I have repaired lots of die cast stuff.
Myself, I don't think I'd want to trust it though.
A crack/hole in a cover is one thing, a foot peg bracket is something else.
