'84 xt 600 broken foot peg bolts?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

It appears that the bolts on the brake side foot peg have let go of the frame. I'm speculating that the nut for each bolt is tacked to the inside of the pocket that cups the frame. My issue is that both bolts will turn freely but will not loosen enough to be removed or tighten enough to prevent the peg bracket from moving. Can anyone confirm this and offer advice on how to remove the bolts and reattach the nuts?

 

Thanks!

Yup that's exactly how they are and when the nut breaks loose about all that can be done is to cut the heads off then cut that front plate off and make a new one with more nuts on the back side. It isn't too hard but a pain and you have to paint the area again. Please don't just weld the bracket to the mount like I've seen a few do , that side needs to come off anytime you need to take the clutch cover off and some other things .

Thanks JJ....

 

I guess I have another winter project. I just hope it lasts until snowfall.
