FS: XR650R Right Footpeg Fix $15

Post  Bump on Tue May 19, 2009 8:07 pm

I'm not saying this is the correct way to go, as Team Honda went another way which I think is better, but this is definitely the budget route.
Here's a guy on ADV selling the bolt drill-out only style upgrade for $15.

His text:
The right footpeg is a well documented weak point on the BRP. Riding back thru the desert for miles without a right footpeg is the best you can hope for if one of these things fails on you...far worse if your not so lucky...they give way without warning usually at speed and landing a woop or jump.

I have had 3 XR650R's (2 currently) and made three discoveries recently;
1. The constant "loosening" of the two footpeg bolts is due to the stock (soft) bolts stretching. See the pic below...this is off a stock
XR with less than 500 miles.
2. Bolt failures (mine) have not been due to the threads pulling out. In fact I've been able to EZ out the studs without any damge to the
stock frame threads.
3. The stock bolts are either not graded or standard grade (soft, low tensil strength) AND do not fully engage the full length of the frame
threads.

The highest grade of metric bolt is a 12.9. I have successfully replaced my stock bolts with these much stronger, slightly longer
bolts. Unfortunately, the 12.9's are almost impossible to find in the correct size, and when I finally did, had to buy them in bulk. So as a
result, I have fixed both my BRP's and have a bunch of extra bolts...

So here is the deal;
For $15 I'll send you two 55mm 12.9 socket heads, a couple of washers for the front bolt AND an 80mm in case you
have trashed your threads or need to drill thru the frame. 3 Bolts and 2 Washers for $15 shipped. No, I wont sell individual bolts, but if you need more than three PM me and I'll shoot you a price. When they are gone, they are gone....these are just extras I'm trying to clear off the shelf.

PM me if you want some. PayPal ONLY.

IF you could find these in the hardward store they would be $4-$6 each. Cheap insurance for a long ride on the seat or
running over your own leg...

Pics below are bolts from my own bikes...

I picked up my bolts from Mike a few days ago. At the time, he still had more available to ship out.

+1 on this fix. I originally did it w/ the long bolt all the way through, and still snapped the bolt. Ever since I fixed it this way, it hasn't budged...
