Question I snapped a foot peg

I was pushing my scrambler backwards through a door way (always a slightly tricky manouvre due to the fact that the handlebars don't fit) when the right foot peg hit the side of the doorway and snapped off.

My first thought was that it was a pretty pissweak peg to snap so easily like that. Any opinions on that? It didn't hit very hard at all.

My second thought was that I would have to ride to work with just a stump for a foot peg.

My third thought occurred too late (when I was nearly at work) and that was that I could just swap the pillion foot peg over to replace the main one.

I am going to take the bike back to the dealer next week for its first service, so I'll get a replacement then.

I managed to get the pillion foot peg on but (and finally here comes my question) I could not get the spring into place. Does anyone know how to put the spring in place and keep it there long enough while you push the peg in and replace the pin?!

This is tricky business, it just takes some practice :/.You can also hold it in place with an allen key or screwdriver through the peg if you think that might help.

Might pay to take a look around at some of the after market foot pegs before you outlay for one of the originals.

There's some better pieces out there, and less expensive i dare say.

I replaced my front pegs as the original have no grip at all so have you considered doing that rather than replace the crap oem ones?

Thanks for the thoughts. I will take the opportunity to investigate alternative pegs!

Hello


The best alternative pegs are Multistrada ones. They come with or without rubber pads. Even with rubber pads, they are lot cheapier than the Scrambler ones.


And they perfectly fit, no need for any adjustement.

Well, not "cheapier" actually, but only slightly higher priced.
At OEMDucati.com:
Scrambler, right footrest front, part# 0003321: 11.09
Multistrada 1200, right footrest front, part# 0031404: 14.81
Multistrada 1200, right footpeg rubber cover, part# 0000695: 4.38

Anyway, thanks for the Multistrada hint!

Hello

When saying "scrambler ones", I didn't mean the original pegs, but the aftermarket model sold by Ducati, bigger than the original. These are really costly.

You're right, $244 sounds overprized...
