I unfortunately got caught riding in the rain this weekend (I just really wanted to RIDE!) and dropped my 9 at a stop sign. I dented the stock exhaust heat shield at the bottom of the pipes. It isn't a big deal but looks like :edit:. Anyone know where I can buy a stock heat shield? Have anyone ever replaced one? It can't be that hard but those might be famous last words. I also bent my foot brake pedal. Anyone have a spare one of those too? Where could I buy one?

Good to get the 1st low speed bingle out of the way without too much damage - its v unforgiving when not being driven!

Have you considered bending the brake pedal back into shape - its not too hard to do and you may be able to get it into a better shape than stock. I've used a box spanner and extension bar + a piece of wood as a fulcrum - others have used an adjustable wrench and towelling - if the pedal's just bent then you should be able to fix it

If you get a new pedal you could keep it as a spare

Cheers

Dude, here is the link to Lamonster's rear brake mod. It'll give you the jist of how to set up. You shouldn't need a new brake pedal. Just bend it back slow and easy you should be good to go. Glad to hear you're alright:bigthumbsup:

Just replaced my stock exhaust (already de-baffled mind you). unfortunately I'm still using my stock pegs so you can't have those! I'll send you the exhaust if you don't mind covering the cost of shipping. By the looks of it, you bent the parts of the exhaust that are welded on...not just a heat shield you bolt on!

PM me if you want the exhaust...again, I de-baffled it to give the 109 a deeper, meater sound (man grunt, man grunt!)

WOW! You guys are awesome! Thank you so much for the help! As you can tell I am a pretty new rider. I am going to start by bending the brake pedal back. I hope I don't weaken the metal too much. Thanks for the walkthrough SilverSurfer.

I would be curious how much you guys would want for the stock parts (CBoy)? roxburry I live in San Francisco, CA...how much would shipping be for your pipes?

I would take the insurance money for the exorbitant stock exhaust, and get a new pipe + big air + stebel + FI controller, assuming you don't have any of those.

As an insurance adjuster, and after kawzx7's post, I gotta say ,,, hell yeah!. Just because you get a good deal, does not mean the insurance company gets a good deal.

I have the shield...isn't perfect, but is better than what yours now looks like. You can have it for free, if you pay Canadian shipping to your point.

Thanks guys! Good idea on the insurance idea. I have really limited insurance coverage. The cheapest option seems to be buying roxburry's old stock exhaust. I am going to see what this autobody shop quotes me for the job.

To preface, Got my 109 last year...rode for roughly 2,000 miles. After winter passed, grabbed the bike out the garage and started the mods...including de-baffeling, lowering, de-beavering, LED swap outs, handle grips...yatta, yatta, yatta! Just ordered the new exhaust two weeks ago (Hard Krome 2:1 Sideburners...holy freeking cheetoes Batman it's LOUD!) and had the old, stock exhaust sitting in the garage. Seeing how I was going to put the stock exhaust on ebay within a week and later finding Skibum's post...hell, figured I'd rather help a brother in need and get the stock pipes off my hands! The sound great, run great, and look great! I'd put 'em back on my bike if I had to!...but then again, with the Side burners I don't think that's gonna happen!:p

I just noticed this. You say you ride a 9, but you have a pic of a 90 on your sidebar. Which is it?
