Maybe im just unlucky. My right, and only my right foot peg has broke off three times now and everytime it has broken the bolts off inside of the frame! Finally after taking it to the dealer twice i just went and put some grade 8 bolts in there. I also put on nerf bars at the same time with the grade 8 bolts. They havent broke even when i was out at little sahara, but the top bolt has literally been pulled out of the hole while the bottom one remaqins tight. I love my predator, but i was just wondering if anybody has had this happen to theres?

That sucks! I have bent my left foot peg twice. Only my left, and i have not hit anything that would cause it. Both times i noticed it, it was after coming home from my buddies motox track. I only weigh 200 pounds, so im not sure why they are bending.

Heh no, I weigh a lil over 200. I got to looking and it is simply bent. I noticed it when putting on the pure poalris nerf bars. i ordered a new peg the other day and it should be here tommorrow. It was only 24.95 i think. If you guys are all wondering how it got bent i will tell ya, but it wasnt me and not sure how but...I have a friend that is a rich boy and is also a non riding *******. He wanted to get into riding, never rode before, and he chose at the time the second fastest production quad, so i took it off his hands when it was beating him up to often. Anyways i guess he messed that peg up and i dont know how exactly.

I race MX, I weigh 300lbs. I haven't bent a peg yet! If you soften your suspension, things don't bend!

Well now one of my bolts are broken now! I noticed that the bolt wasnt flush to the frame so I tightened it up, I didnt even turn it 1/2 a turn and it snapped off!

Hey guys i told this to Jason and he said that he has had this problem before on one of our bikes so it might be a hit and miss deal but anyway he said that use to happen to him when he raced his lt500r and he has a fix for it so i might be able to kick him in the ass and get him to make it ill let you all know
sorry for your bad luck
