Hi,

I have some pegs and have looked at fitting them, one way the bracket has a tab sticking out which nearly touches the silencer so took it to the shop and he said you hvae to have it the other way round and bend the braket around the frame...it it 2mm think and looks almost impossible and I am woried about breaking the weld.

Any tips...?

Just squeeze slowly. I was working about the strap cracking, but it was fine, I just squeezed little by little.
