Harley softail foot peg d clip rust

My bike is a 16 and has 250 miles on it. I noticed all 4 pegs d clips are rusting. One of the peg brackets has some rust on it right next to the d clip. I cleaned them all off pretty good and touched up the rust on foot peg bracket with some black paint. I didn't mess with painting the d clips because I didn't want to take apart all the pegs and chance loosing parts or breaking shit lol. What does everyone else do about this

Had one snap in two due to rust.


Replaced it, then used some Marine Grease to lube up all 4 foot peg pivots and spring washers.

I used some wd-40 on one of the brackets that was the worse. Then used some aersoal cleaning spray to clean them all good and remove most of the rust look. Then applied some bugslide to help seal them.
