Hi, Novice mechanic here. Changing foot pegs on my new 790. Successfully mounted the left peg onto the peg/clutch pedal assembly. When I went to reattach the assembly to the bike the lowest most bolt will not screw back in. My flashlight reveals the bolt hole is now slightly out of alignment with the frame. No idea what to do. It looks like it will take a great deal of force to get things properly realigned. Anybody seen this before??

How is the bike supported - on the side-stand or on a rear wheel stand or front wheel chock stand?

Yes, I think you identified the problem. Having no paddock stand, I only used the kick stand for support. I suppose I bungled that. Any idea how to correct at this point? I have a paddock stand on order.

Have a friend hold the the bike upright, or lean it against a wall. The kickstand bracket has moved since it shares the same bolt as the rearset.

Remove chain guard, loosen side stand, and try to nudge it into alignment??

Voila! Knight Design pegs, almost 1 inch lower than stock. Need more room for the knees! Thank you for the help!

@Hawk Moth - nice one, I thought it might be the pressure from the bike on the side stand.

Glad you got it sorted and have more room for your knees now!
