Alternative to stock or Oberon footpegs: LSL footpegs and brackets

Had to lay down my bike today. Not a big deal but I did break off the front brake-side footpeg.

Now I'm on the hunt for options. I don't want to go the stock or Oberon route. Why? Because of stories that the stud in the u-joint bracket breaks down the line especially if you've dropped or laid the bike down.

So, I've found an alternative: LSL Fold-up brackets and footpegs. They don't cost much more than a set of Oberons and you get to replace the whole u-joint assembly which is a plus.

Take a look at tell me what you think:

I have these and really like them. However, from what I understand, it is not the peg or the bracket that fails, but the cleat that attaches it all to the bike frame. That is not what you are replacing. You'll like the LSLs though. They are much more streamlined.

I just put on adjustable LSL rear pegs, I really like them and plan to have front pegs as well when money is available

This was not my understanding from reading the various threads. You are saying the large chunk of mild steel that attaches to the frame is what is failing? I saw picture of primarily the welded stud in the clovis u-joint failing.

I thought it was the clovis that was failing, which is the piece that attaches directly to the bike and to which the footpeg bracket attaches. When you get the new pegs, you get a bracket with holes that line up with the clovis holes and then you screw your pegs to that bracket.

Most that have had a break report the clevis mounting stud sheared off. A few have experienced the casting of the actual peg breaking. Usually after a drop.

Personally I've not seen either problem firsthand. 6.5 yrs, 27K+ miles, calorie challenged, and like to stand on my Oberon pegs for a number of reasons. I believe it's a relatively uncommon failure, but it is a serious problem that gets lots of attention when it does happen... and deservingly so.

Maybe his garage door got stuck 3 feet open, and he had to lay down his bike to slide it out? Or maybe he wanted to take a photo of the sump bolt, and his camera wouldn't fit under the bike?

Otherwise, I suspect it would be more accurate to say "I crashed". :-)
