After stripping my bike today following a crash yesterday, I have found something that might well be a problem:



The lower footpeg mount has been snapped off of the frame.

I have the part, still attached to the footpeg.

Does anyone know if this can be fixed back on? e.g. welded?

If not, has anyone got any suggestions for how to fix it?

I thought about getting the footrest hanger welded on - is this possible?

I know nothing about fixing this type of damage :crap:

Thanks!

You'll have to show it to a welder.
It can definately be fixed but getting weld to the back of it is going to be difficult. You could also weld a piece of angle on the back edge of the frame casting and bolt the rearset to that.
Or you could make a new rearset that attaches elsewhere.

go to the nearest welder's shop and dont make it out to be a big job, cause u'll get screwed. it should only be a matter of tig welding not to big a job, make sure the battery is out of the bike when it is gettin done cause if the leads are'nt protected with a zapper or when disconacted they make contect again while welding you will have a big problem...!!!!:thumb:

You can get this fixed. A pro welder can do it. I suggest taking it appart and giving said welder an empty frame, with the mount tab. That makes it easier for the welder, and better for the price. However, it is not an easy job just to take the bike appart. Yes, I am sure this thought has passed your mind:cool: . I had a similar problem years ago with my old Gixxer. I got it welded after I took it to a few welders in my area. The trick was to find a guy who would do it with the bike still assembled. I got it done for a case of Heinekin and $200.00 worth of table dances at a local bar. No,,,,,,,,, I was not the table dancer.........:thumb: :patriot:

Hmm, maybe with a bit of T-Cut it'll polish out?

I got it welded in the end - £25. The guy originally said strip the bike to the frame, which I started to do - got the bike down to the engine, frame and forks, only to find an engine mount bolt that had seized solid :pissed:

So I took the bike to the welders like that, which was good enough for him.
