Default Left foot peg section loose

So as the title says, my left rider footpeg on my GSX-R600 is loose. I bought my bike used and the pegs that came on it are aftermarket race pegs (they're smaller and don't fold up). My bike got dropped on the left side and the peg came off and now it screws in but is a bit loose. It stays in there but is a little wobbly and that's definately not something you want for a footpeg that'll have some weight on it. I need to take a closer look but maybe more of the footpeg section is loose and not just my footpeg. I also wonder if the screw just got stripped a bit.

I know this is a bit vague and hard to cover online but what do y'all think? If it is more than just a loose footpeg, is that a part of the bike that can be tricky or expensive to work with? And I think I'll be looking to get the orignal manufacturer pegs on there, what is the best website to get original parts?

Thanks all.

If they are afterwarket, just figure out who made them and order part. One of the big selling points of after market pegs is that they are rebuildable.

I know it's been awhile but I finally got a pic to describe what I mean. I bought the bike used so I don't know what brand my pegs are. Any ideas?

I highlighted the two problem areas. The green square is the peg itself; once I had my weight on my left peg while in a sharp left turn and the peg actually fell off. I was left hanging half on my bike but I was able to stay up. I pulled over, got my peg from the road and rode home where I put it back on. The peg now rotates on its axis a bit but is overall fairly stable.

The red square shows where the unit itself is a bit loose. If I grab the peg and wiggle it the whole unit has a little bit of up and down motion up until it connects with the V shaped part. Not the most technical definition but you should get the idea.

The left peg and unit are completely secure.

My worry is that maybe the guy before me stripped the screw (the one with the allen wrench hole that is visible in the red square) so maybe that's as tight as it will get even if I get a new setup. Is this a valid concern?

With all this in mind, what exactly do I need to buy? I thinking I'll need more than just a peg.

Thanks all.

Remove footpeg bracket and tighten from other side. According to the picture of the pegs it appears that it has 2 screws securing the foot peg. One on the inside of bracket the other on the outside which makes the bracket adjustable (rotation of bracket)

Thanks man, this is exactly what I'm looking for but what part exactly is the footpeg bracket?

And your response is just for the problem in the green square right?

Go to the front of the V bracket and take out the 2 allen bolts. Bracket footpeg and lever will come off as an assembly. There is another screw at the back side of the small foot peg bracket, red box.

That's exactly what it took. Thanks man.
