Bent peg

While looking down on my left peg, I noticed a slight tweak. I have dropped the bike a few times in the dirt....ok ok more than a few times. I dont see anything else around it thats tweaked so wondering if it was always like that. Can someone that is by their bike look at theirs and tell me if they see the same? I will bend ti back, but that plate is pretty thick and not easily moved.

If it is bent, it's most likely just the peg itself. Replace with any of the much better aftermarket ones (Piviot Pegs are my choice).

I have Fastways on my dirtbikes, so will most likely use them on the F8.

I doesn't look bent to me
I know what your up to. You want to be able to tell the wife that you posted a pic on Advrider and everyone agrees with you so you can go get some aftermarket pegs.
Good thinking mate....

where was I... OK that picture really shows up how bent that peg is. You should really change that out its a real hazard..
Will that do.

Good Luck Mate.. By the way I run the Fastways and could not be any happier.

Great idea, mate. I also want to change my handle bar, so I will take a photo and and have all my mates in here vote that it's bent and dangerous. lol.

Back to this photo....it really is bent but the photo does not show clearly. No big deal....just wanted to see if anyone else' was bent a little.

I don't have to justify my bike purchases to my wife. She spent more for bike stuff last month than I did I do usually win the spending war though, but still don't have to seek spousal approval or consent. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones.

But yes, that peg is surely bent all to hell
