Thumbs up Repairing stripped out a foot peg

After high siding I found my foot peg had come off and it wasn't because I hadn't tightened the bolts. Upon further inspection I found the threads had stripped out from rust and corrosion. My answer was two fold....

Sorry, but I have to suggest that the FOOT REST bracket NOT BE WELDED, at least not that completely.
Maybe a of couple tack welds, only.

My reasoning, If you ever have to replace the shift shaft seal, the lower chain slipper, or heaven forbid, remove the engine. You have got a lot of grinding to do in a very confined area.

There may be some truth in that above

Best way to fix the issue is to cut out the plate and weld in a thicker one with the enxt size up bolts and use stronger bolts and good old blue!

But to each their own. It's not a simple fix but if you have the skills not difficult either.
