Broken footpeg bracket for 2001 ZX6R sportbike, $90 to replace. Breaks every time bike tips over from the wind, being backed into, or falling while riding.
Finite element analysis strength simulation for PLA part under impulse load while riding. Factor of safety was later improved and material was changed to nylon.
