I'm quite new to the forum. I bought a DL1000X2 in December and this weekend I went on a great ride to the north of Tasmania. About 5km from home I came to a roundabout, and somehow my glove rolled open the throttle open as I was going for the brake lever. The bike surged forward up over a divider and then I was off! Broke my collar bone in the process. :bom_annoyed:
Thankfully I'd fitted a GIVI bar which took most of the impact on the bike, but the left footpeg bracket broken (see below pics).
I'd like some suggestions on repairs;
1. Can the footpeg brackets be welded (I gather they are alloy) The replacement is around $100 locally.
2. Are there any aftermarket brackets/pegs available that would be a good replacement. I am 6' 4" so wouldn't mind some extended leg room, though from what I've read there is often a problem with brake and or gear levers with extended peg setups.
I came across MFW Vario footpegs and brackets (see; http://f800depot.com/index.php?main_...99fe9a271345c8
and locally for the DL1000 at http://www.motorradgarage.com.au/cat...0e0f8ee7a8b07e
It doesn't look like these have a full replacement footpeg bracket though. I've sent a inquiry to Motorradgarage to find out.
3. The left front indicator lense broke, and I gather you can only get full indicators OEM. I may look at alternative indicator units as I've seen elsewhere on the forum.
