Naked Versys Needs Help

So this last Saturday I was on a ride with a club and had to lay down my bike to avoid running over another biker who lost control in front of me. I walked away with nothing more than bruises and the versys was still rideable. I did however get a bit of cosmetic damage.

I wound up with a bent brake lever, destroyed right tank fairing, destroyed right front turn signal, bent rear brake lever, torn seat material and a scratched up bar end mirror.

I'm putting out a desperate call for used parts as I just cant afford to buy all the replacement pieces right now. If anyone has a factory seat that they have replaced I'd love to take it off your hands. Also I would love to buy a damaged red right side tank fairing (front can be damaged as I'm going to chop that part off again).

If anyone has these parts I'd love to buy them used. Please help me fix the naked versys.

There is a stock seat on ebay right now. Opening bid of 89 bucks, I think. Good luck with your bike repair.

I don't know about used parts but try RonAyers for the new ones, the site has everything and it is not that expensive, replaced a taillight when my Givi topcase unexpectedly broke from vibration(have to check bolts) and landed on the taillight. I also had to replace the side fairing from my genius of a mistake in over tightening the wrong screw in the wrong spot but I was surprised at how inexpensive it was...good luck with the repair.

Thanks for the heads up. I hope I can snag a few of those parts for cheap.
