It's possible to bend them when you drop the bike even of they aren't extended for use (DAMHIK). My guess is that's when it happened. I've had JPegs on all my LTs and used them extensively both in the conventional "foot prop" mode as well as some time with my legs resting on top of the extended pegs, and never bent a bolt until a tip-over event. I know guys who have actually stood up/pulled themselves up on the JPegs while riding to stretch their legs and that didn't bend bolts, either. I even had a set basically survive a high side accident that totaled my 02 LT, only the bolt used as the stop was bent, and then only very slightly.brianf70 said:I seem to bend them when I extend my legs. I don't have long legs 30" inseam. I can't see spending $40 for new bolts.. Any ideas where to find replacements..I have droped the bike but I don't think they bend then.
