Default Stripped Foot peg

high sided my 2006 warrior.......the foot peg was literally ripped out of the frame thus eliminating the threads for the bolt. Anyone with any experience repairing this problem? thx!

I think that most people that have had problems with the thread (mostly stuck bolts) have just ran longer bolts all the way through the frame and put a nut on the backside.

you could try drilling and tapping a larger sized bolt if the holes aren't too trashed. you'll have to drill the foot peg bracket as well of course.

The concern is with the width of the initial hole and what to do to about the issue of the threads being gone.

That was the initial thought...tapping and drilling....but not sure if that's a good idea due to width....looking for any and all ideas! thx!

The photo looks strange. Do you have a forward control bracket between the frame and the aluminum foot peg mount? Anyway, you could install a couple of heli-coils and still maintain oem bolt diameter and length.

Heli-Coil is the way to go.

They sell Kits that has the correct tap, insert tool and heli-coil. You just need to provide the correct dia drill bit and drill. Its pretty easy, Practice on a piece of AL.

There is about 5 or 6 heli-coils in the kit.

BTW, Hope your OK!

Just in case, which item number(s) need thread repair? Is it Bolt #18?

It's only partially stripped and pretty sure it's 18. Looks like we're going with the longer bolt solution first. THANK YOU for all your help! I'm ok from the wreck.....20 plus stiches around my eye and above my head...concussion....sprained wrist...but I got back on my other bike, learned from my mistakes and am ready to roll again! Now I need help with handle bars so I'm going to put a new post for that. :-)

I have a set of 03 Handlebars you are welcome to for the shipping.

I encourage you to try the Helicoil repair for the stripped bolt.
