I dropped mine at a stand still a while back - right side... and thought there was no real damage... a few minor scratches on my pannier and my Barkbuster that all "buffed out" quite nicely.
Weeks later I noticed that my right foot peg was missing its tip. It was still fully functional... but the tip, where the bank sensor is screwed into was gone.
I ordered a new foot peg and bank sensor bolt ($30+) and when they came in, I discovered that the underside of the foot peg has a groove built into it - right at the point of my break... like it's designed to break off in a drop.
I was wondering if anyone else out there has had a simple drop and ended up having to replace an expensive foot peg due to the tip breaking off.
You can see the groove I'm referring to in the picture below... right at the break point. WTF?
I imagine it's designed to break off if you take a turn leaned entirely too far and hook your peg on something. Better that it snap off than wreck you.
...or bend the frame. I concur. Although, a simple and easy (I held it as long as I could, so it only fell over maybe foot or less) at a standstill doesn't seem like it should snap the footpeg's tip off.
