07 gsxr right foot rest rotating

Guys, the right foot peg on my gsxr rotates, and I'm pretty sure thats NOT supposed to happen. I don't want to be a hazard at the track so I'm looking for a quick easy fix.

I made a YOUTUBE video to show what I'm talking about. I'm just thinking about buying a factory rear brake pedal to see if that will end my problem. But if you know that its something else causing the foot peg to rotate, please let me know.

the thru hole in your after market brake lever is too wide (wider than the stock lever), allowing it to bind with the peg when the bolt is fully tightened. you can fix it one of two ways. remove some material from the width of the levers mounting point or try shimmimg the peg between the peg dowel and the peg bracket, using a washer or two. the latter is the easier of the two ways.

no problem. let us know how it works out for you.

BTW, that mounting bolt should have some thread locker on it.

Works like a charm. I'm headed over to my F.I.L's house to use some of his red loctite. I had to take a wire brush to the threads to clean out all of the crusty old thread lock, and will be re-locking it in a bit.

You probably won't see this before you do it but...

don't over-loctite it. Just a drop or so is plenty. Many people use way too much.

If you already know this then I'll shutup

especially with red loctite... ive stripped the head off a bolt using a hand wrench cause the person before me decided to overdo it on a folding chair of all things.
