lost a passenger peg

I took a long trip over the weekend. Got about 400 miles from home and noticed I lost the left rear passenger peg. The screw on the top was missing as was the peg and the spring but the pin and plate were still in place. Last year I lost the screw but caught it before the peg and spring were able to get away. I used blue loctite and it appeared to hold the screw tight until this trip. Is this common? I did a search and found nothing. I was thinking about doing a passenger peg delete but its a nice place to hang the helmet during short stops.

Thanks for the reply.

There is a cotter pin, I used a brand new OEM cotter pin after powder coating the steps this past winter. The issue is the screw came loose (I used blue loctite) and likely beat the cotter pin into submission. I noticed it was missing after buzzing on the highway for about 400 miles. I guess I should use red or green loctite next time.

Yup, it's part of the left side vibe issues, I lost mine too. I ended up retrofitting a pair from a cbr.

Thanks for the feedback. I figured this was the case but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something. After all, I did touch it last.

Loctite your pedal pivot bolts as well while you are at it. Last thing you want is inability to shift gears when your are miles away

Don't forget the shifter linkage too.
