Unhappy Fixing Brake Lever, Brake Pedal, Bar Slider - August 14, 2007, 10:06 AM

So yea, my bike was out of commission for a month while getting fixed at Fairfax Cycles... I got it back 2 weeks ago, and last night I dropped my bike on the right side while trying to avoid a dog on a leash that ran out in front of me while making a right turn in a neighborhood.

I only have a $500 deductable from insurance and haven't had a chance to get quotes on the damage yet. But while googling it looks like some of the things I can fix myself. Any suggestions on how to repair the following???

Damage:
- The peg of the Rear brake pedal snapped off
- About 1 inch of the front brake lever snapped off
- The stock bar end of my right handle bar is kind of hanging off. I can see the bar going from it to inside my throttle. I can still turn the throttle, but its more resistance.
- Right turn signal is busted open
- Big scratches along right fairing and near headlight.

Thanks!!

Those are all (with the exception of the scratch) very easy bolt on fixes. Probably not anywhere close to your deductible to purchase all the items and about an hour to replace them.

It sounds like those types of replacements are just take off the broken parts, and put the new ones one in reverse order.

What kind of bike to you have? Check on ebay, or www.ronayers.com for stock parts or www.motonekoparts.com for aftermarket parts.

New OEM brake lever ~ $20
New OEM peg ~ $30
New OEM bar end ~ $10
New OEM turn signal ~$60
New OEM mid fairing ~$200
New OEM upper fairing ~ $200

So total cost is in the neighborhood of your deductible, but you should use this as a learning experience and replace it yourself. Dozens of people here would be willing to help. I just replaced my clutch lever for the first time ever, and I'm absolutely mechanically incompetent.

I'm just guessing... Ronayers.com will probably have the lowest OEM prices.

Get on ebay and buy all the parts left over. Someone else crashed the left side and are selling the right in perfect shape.

Next time run the dog over, I would never crash to avoid hitting an animal (hahaha, even the wife).


Can't choose between the R1 and the 10R so I am keeping both but settled with an 1198S when I came home

Keep it up!!!!!!!

LOL I think I'm well past due too! Hey, I'll hit you up once I got everything squared away. We should take a ride sometime.
