Lowsided yesterday when I took some cornering (found out it's full with sand). after checking my ninja condition, found out those pillion foot peg bent inside. opened the screws (2 pcs) and found out those bracket plate slightly bent.

Is anyone here got an idea on how to readjust it back? need some advise

the footpegs on my bike have a spring and seem to want to swivel up but they are very tight in the mounts. are they supposed to swivel up when they hit the pavement or are they supposed to be fixed at right angles to the bike??

You could either use a large set of pliers and use your hulk strength to bend them back out, or you could get a long solid steel or iron rod, and with a hammer, hammer them back out. Stick the rod through the open space between the swing arm and fender (not hugger), keep it on the tab, and hit it until the tab is straight again - then make sure to touch-up or repaint any parts of the subframe where the paint flakes off - beating on painted metal will usually cause the paint to flake off.

Did you get it?

I think I'd go with spooph's "use your hulk strength to bend them back out" and see if it moves. Sit on the ground, put your feet on the swingarm, and pull!

I'm thinking it will move back by pulling on it. If not, hit the sucker with a hammer!

And, as spooph said, check where the bracket mounts to the frame for chipped paint.
