Passenger Foot rest thingys

My passenger footrests do not stay up anymore. Guessing whatever the thingys are that are supposed to hold them up in the vertical position have worn out. Anyone know how to fix??

Re: Passenger Foot rest thingys

if they are the stock pegs, there is a spring and a detent ball inside. I would think that the ball/spring rusted and are stuck/missing... Simple fix...

A little WD40 to clean and then some light oil to keep the spring and ball from rusting up too quick?

Careful when you take it apart. That little ball can roll! DAMHIK.
