I had a wreck and I bent my back brake and foot peg at the frame. Do I have to replace the whole frame or just that section of Frame.?

No. It's only a few bolts holding it together. Don't let some insurance company "BOZO" tell you "oh, that's frame damage and it's totaled." :chair: It's only like $300 to fix with a new one and about 20-30 minutes.

I’m man enough to admit... I did the same thing.

Simple swap of that frame piece - and I was even able to get mine in the factory silver color for the 2012 VRSCDX for pretty near a perfect paint match.

I don't understand the answers here. The Back brake is secured to a bracket that is secured on the rear axle. The rear foot pegs are screwed to the main portion of the frame.

What kind of bike do you have? Pictures would help of the damage.

RG -

We’re really talking about the rear brake PEDAL, and foot peg rest for your right foot.

Those bolt into a bunghole on the lower front right of the spring and that bunghole can be easily bent.

Fortunately, that bunghole is on a removable piece of the frame so this is easily fixed.

Kstrou,
OK. Been there done that. I just misread the post.

It bends easily? Is that dangerous in any way?
Well, "easily" means if you take a 600 pound bike at moderate speed and lay it on it's side with a pedal attached (so there's a torque arm) between the bike and asphalt.

You don't have enough calf muscle to bend it, so don't sweat that! :)
