SW-Motech footpeg installation questions
I just bought a set of SW-Motech Convertible Onroad/Offroad footpegs (SKU: 1064083 from revzilla) for my 2016 650. This doesn't seem to be going well, but maybe it's just me:
1) The footpeg has an octagonal hole, and the adapter has an octagonal protrusion. The protrusion does not fit into the hole, it it supposed to? Assembled, there's like a half-inch gap between the footpeg and the adapter. I've attached an image, though it's hard to see in the picture..
2) The spring from the original footpeg isn't matching this adapter at all. The original footpeg had a hole that one end of the spring fitted into, and the adapter has nothing like that. Do I even need the spring? I'm starting to wonder if they sent me the wrong adapter.
3) The original footpeg is missing a huge chunk (picture also attached). I bought the bike new and it's only approaching 12,000 miles. Is that expected? Should I worry? It's not like they salt the roads here in California, so I'm pretty surprised to see the thing disintegrating.
