Urgent help required, right footpeg broke off

Hello, I was actually a member for years but forgot password after not having vara (see introduction post)

It's SO annoying as I've not come close to crashing, but given a couple annoying things happening now both sides of crashbar are scraped.

Anyhoo, to the point, the right hand foot rest/peg for break has broke off, had vara parked leaning up hill, wasn't leaning enough that I would've left it long like that. Anyway it suddenly got windy and blew it downhill onto its right hand side, broke the footrest for break off. I've ordered a new set but they don't come until middle next week.

My question is, can I use one of the passenger foot rests as a temporary fix?

Thanks in advance for any help, it's a nightmare trying to ride with a few centimetres of foot rest left !

Cheers

Hello apologies with my first post after introduction is a question.

It's probably a no brainer but can I use one of the passenger footrests as a temporary measure until new footrests come (not for another few days)

Can I use a passenger footrest inplace of main footrest for break on the right hand side ?

Thanks

Hello all

Just so everyone knows, I take no offence that nobody answered, it was kind of a no brainer, also in my intro post I said something to the effect of "I don't wanna be one of those people  who signs up and immediatly asks a question" so honestly it's all good. I look to help others before I ask questions. :)

I got new a set of new pegs on the way, in meantime I was able to get the bolt off main peg holder that broke off, renove passenger peg then attach that to main brake foot peg bracket. Used a new pin and washer cos the old ones were rusted so bad the pin fell to bits trying to get it off !  :))
