Bike fell over and I need parts now...

Good morning everyone! I did a stupid thing on Saturday and knocked the bike over on the right side as it was sitting on the kick stand. Well now the handle bars are bent, right side crank case cover is gouged, rear brake pedal is bent, and of course the right side bar end is messed up. Obviously I can't ride b/c of the bent brake pedal and bent handle bars. So I need some good websites where I can order parts at a good price.

So far I need:
1. Front brake lever
2. Rear brake pedal
3. Right side crank case cover
4. A handle bar

I think I can figure out how to do everything except the handle bar. Can anyone give me some help and directions on how to replace it? Is it a simple matter of removing all the controls and sliding them onto the new one or is it more complicated than that.

Thanks guys!

Cris P.

I've had good luck with these guys, fairly priced OEM parts: http://partsfinder.ridenow.com/fiche...g=Honda&year=0

You can also check BikeBandit.com, they're usually a bit more pricy though. Handlebars are easy, do a search on here about Renthals and you'll find some guides to replacing them. This might be a good time to upgrade to aftermarket bars and levers, even rearsets if that's in your budget at all. You also might put a post in the "wanted to buy" section for used parts.

Good luck!

Lotsa guys here have removed their handlebars and replaced them. Chances are you will be able to pick one up from them cheap.

If you like the stock position, I would buy a Renthal medium roadbar. You will get less vibration and not so much pullback angle. I just installed the high roadbar with 1/2" cut off each end - this bar is about 3/4" closer to the rider than the stock bar, angled the right way. It also has just the right pullback angle, that stock bar angle is obnoxious! I simply don't see any way a motorcycle could be more comfortable than my bike is now.

I replaced my bars with renthals, and have the stock ones sitting in the garage. If you are interested let me know.

I've got two stock handlebars, and I think I have the bar ends as well. I can send them to you for the price of shipping. Unless you're wanting to try a different set of bars, they aren't too expensive. Just send be a PM.

WOW! Thanks everyone for all the help and support! About these Renthals...do I need to modify the bike or the Renthal's in any way to get them to fit? I like the upright seating position and I don't want to lose that, BUT if the Renthal's are that good maybe I should try them. Where can I order them from?

Thanks,
Cris P.

if you think you're going to keep the bike a while & don't mind spending for an upgrade, why not try the Renthals. Everyone seems to like them. (sticking to a tight budget, I used something else)
i've had good luck ordering parts from:
www.pjsparts.com for aftermarket stuff
www.ronayers.com and www.servicehonda.com for oem stuff

Thanks for the websites. From what I've read everyone seems to love the Renthals. My question though is which ones do I need to order? I like commuting on the bike and just casual riding, so I'm not too keen on leaning too far forward. Can someone give me some ideas as to which bars to get and do I need to modify anything if I purchase these??

THanks,
Cris P.
