... The peg broke off and cracked the engine case.

That's the reason I haven't tried to mount generic pegs to my engine guards.

I've seen some that are designed to fold up over the guard itself, but for $50+ I haven't been motivated enough to test it out.

Mine did fold up and still had the damage.

Dang. Sorry that happened to you.

I reckon I won't spend any more time wondering if it would be worth trying.

If you had a set of lower guards installed you could mount them to that.  I had some highway pegs mounted to my Vstroms engine guards.
