82-1100 Interstate Footpegs
I'm trying to replace the floorboards on my 1100 Interstate and have purchased the footpegs at a good price ($30 total shpd).
Here's the problem:
On the right side footpeg bracket is a short stud (or peg) -- and one on the frame, as well -- that keeps the bracket away from the frame. (Pls see pic)
I'm considering cutting off the studs and bolting the bracket against the frame. However, there is nothing to keep the footpeg from turning when you step on it, except for the tightness of the bolt. Shouldn't the footpeg have more support than this?
And on the left side, there is one stud on the frame (only), which does not interfere with the bracket, but the same problem exists: Is it safe to rely on just the bolt and a lock-washer to hold it in place? Thanks.
