WTB - '06 forks, bars, fender, mirrors, gauge clusters, headlight stay

Hey guys!!
Got a SCREAMIN' deal on an 06 that was dropped/crashed, and then garaged for 6 yrs. Trying to get it back on the road on a budget, and would like to get it back to stock before trying to mod things. Don't have anything to trade, as this is my first sport bike.

FORKS - Both forks are dented and bent, so if anyone has some stock forks that they have laying around-- only need the tubes, but I will take whole assemblies. Like I said, want to keep it all stock, at least for now.

Handlebars-- whos got some stock bars?? They are up in the rafters, c'mon, please dig em out. Bar ends too if ya got em

Front fender-- color doesnt matter, as the tank has a dent, so I am going to have to do some body and paint work.

Mirrors-- actually pretty low on the list, as they are all over ebay, in many colors and styles. But if someone wants to take pity on me and hook me up for the cost of shipping or something, I am prepared to grovel a bit.

Gauge cluster-- looking for plastic-- need the outer gauge cover (chromed plastic) and the gauge back-- white plastic backing plate, bolts to bottom of top tree. Anyone pull their factory gauge cluster and put it up on a shelf??

Headlight stay-- headlight was somehow untouched and survived. Gauges got the brunt of it, and the headlight stay and grommets got bent to hell. I am going to pull it all apart early this week and will try to straighten it out.

And while I am at it-- brake pedal got tweaked. Plan to pull it, heat it with a torch, and try to work it back into useable form. Any advice or caveats? I assume that heating it will be better then just trying to muscle it back into line, which would probably just crack or break it.

Glad to have found this community, and anyone in Chicagoland, hit me up!!!

Thanks in advance!!!

Bending the foot levers is pretty easy, it's mild steel. May not even need heat, I never did and at least got it into a usable shape.

I've got some mirrors off of my 599 - they are rectangle, rather than the stock mickey mouse round mirrors off the 919. They'll fit as well; have some scratches on the back of one of them, but they're yours if you want to pay shipping.

I can get pics if you want.

Thanks Guys!!

Quick thanks to you all!!!! I have got a boatload of replacement parts on the way, as well as a few PMs with great, helpful advice!


Honestly, more than I could have hoped for!!! Forks, bars, fender, and gauge pieces are all inbound, and I picked up some mirrors and levers on ebay. Straightened out the brake pedal without any heat, and no apparent cracking or stress.
Pulled the headlight stay tonite, and I am pretty sure I can bend it all back into submission and alignment.

All in all, thanks to some GREAT forum members, I am already ahead of my original plan, which was to repair everything over the winter. Might actually get it out on the street before all the leaves fall!!!
