First ride of the year, I foolishly believed the BBC weather forecast.

But all went well until I pulled back into Monmouth and the right hand side footrest snapped.

Any reliable sources for replacements or alternatives?

Thank you for all of the replies except for 1

Barney: I tried your Slimfast option and eventually managed to attach the slimfast container to the bike as a replacement footrest.

I wasn't too sure of the aesthetic appeal but it was the cheapest option and I was sure there would be no tongue in cheek replies from forum members....

The only issue was when it rained again the container collapsed as it's made of cardboard!

:headbang:

Hey, how cold does it get where you live then, or was it just the shock of a "blicey arst" and pie retention ? :coat:

Still alive and recovering after the footpeg replacement.

Just one "circlip" decided to make a dash for freedom but was soon re-captured.

No slimfast tins to be seen and the :run: weather was a balmy 5 degrees in Wales

Thanks to Oberon Performance Parts for a quick turn around on the footpegs.

:run:

P S.Steering damper on a Buell must be hiding other faults.?

Steering damper was already fitted when I bought the bike, it was turned up pretty stiff, I've adjusted it down subsequently and it's probably more on there now because that's how it arrived.
