Question Accident Repairs

I am looking for bar ends for my 05 Wee. I recently put my bike down in order to avoid colliding with a vehicle that turned left in front of me without ever noticing I was there. I have gotten quotes from the insurance company, but have not been able to find prices on bar ends that attached to my OEM handguards.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

On a separate note, I only got some road rash and bruised up in the accident. The other driver stopped, and is taking responsibility. So, the insurance company want to get this dealt with quickly.

Looks like about $26 plus shipping from Ron Ayers:

Glad you're OK!! It's no fun hitting the turf, but if you can walk away with just bumps, bruises, and a bit of soreness it was a relatively good day.

Cheap fix

If the bar end weights are just scuffed, try filing, wet sanding, and hit them with some shiny black spray paint. You may have this lying around and it will cost $0. If you keep the bike a while, there is a chance you may drop it again...
