Replacing the corner on Adventure pannier?

Since I can't make a U-Turn in my garage, I was pushing my bike backwards... I tripped and dropped it.

Beautiful.

Luckily I have the Adventure package with the aluminum panniers, so the bike is undamaged.
Not so luckily, I now have a cracked plastic corner on the pannier.
It looks like it's held in with rivets.

Anyone replace one? Are they even available as a separate part?

Not sure if Suzuki carries the parts, but Twisted Throttle has the replacement corners with all the hardware for $46.99.

Wow, really expensive corner protectors. Are they designed to self destruct on contact to save the stronger alumnimum body?

Christ... I hope that includes free same-day delivery.

Rivets are installed using the same no-pierce, super-strong rivet technology that holds the frame of the Audi TT together
Those replacement rivets don't appear to be non-piercing type.


*sigh* I really wish SW Motec would've put aluminum behind the plastic.
