During my first track day I touched my foot peg on a hairpin and instead of the peg pivoting up it seemed to catch and nearly upset the bike. At the end of the session I noted that there is a bolt sticking diagonally down from the end of the peg which was gouged and apparently caught on the asphalt. What is the purpose of that extra piece and would it not be less likely to catch if this was removed? I'm sure its there for something but ????? Certainly didn't do anything for me.
