DUMPED BIKE TODAY!!!! :( Rear Brake Foot Controls

SO really bad news. It rains in Seattle and I still rode anyways my car is down and have been riding daily for the last month. Well, today the horrible happened. The bike went down.

Tried to make a slight turn on a driveway when my back tire hit a patch of grass and sild out from under me. All told the batwing fairing, Front right turn signal, back right saddlebag, and the rear brake foot controls are toast.

My question is where can I get a replacement rear brake foot control bracket, and bolts. I've found the rear brake master cylinder and parts but not bracket and long bolts.. Help me get my girl back on the road soon. Thanks

I believe the bolts will be in the Frame section if I remember right

Also consider calling your local Honda dealer. If you give them the part number and the online price, they usually will match it and get the part to you in 2-3 business days.

I always check with them before I order genuine Honda parts. If there is a problem with the part (haven't had one yet), you have a person you can bring the part to and have them deal with the problem.

I usually make a list (I have had to order several parts over the winter convert my '09 R exhaust bracket to the older pre-200, then fax them the list with part numbers and prices. They usually match or beat the online price (tax usually comes out to about the same, or less than shipping).

When you get to your year and model, look for "Step"... Brackets and bolts

Also, since you're already working on her, may I suggest a crash bar?
It prevents extensive damage should the bike go down.
I installed one and it already saved my bacon twice. (though I will never admit to dropping the bike, never. NEVER! Wasn't me. Must have been someone else when I wasn't looking. )

Agreed on the Crash bar/ Engine Guard. You may or may not like the way they look, but they can save you big bucks when the unfortunate happens.

I’m glad you’re OK. It happens to everyone eventually if you ride long enough.

Hey guys thanks for the help and support the step bracket was exactly what I was looking for.

As for the engine bars I planned on getting them anyway so I can put highway pegs on but just had not saved up the money for one yet.

Yeah in 14 years of riding I have laid a bike down once in Montana, and then the other day. Pride was hurt the worst as It was I dropped her about 10 feet behind a cop car who was blocking access to the drive way I was trying to pull into. Cops should not pull people over and allow them to block other roads. But little to be done about it now, lesson learned. Thanks for all the help in finding parts and the suggestion for checking with local dealers I will most assuredly do that.

Let you know which route I take and the final outcome

Don't forget that you don't have to necessarily install a brand new part for a lot of $$$.
I got lucky and found a used one on fleaBay for a fraction of the cost of new. It was missing the mounting HW but that's no problem for this engineer.
Hope you can find one cheap too!

(and pics after, or else )
