Angry This idiot let his bike fall over

I'm not going into how, let's just say it was stupid. Bent the rear brake lever tip up, bent the headlight fairing bracket, scratched the exhaust guard. Oh and it fell on my car and scratched the bumper.

I heated the brake lever tip and bent it back for now. Took headlight and instrument cluster off and straightened the bracket as best I could. Colored in the scratches on the exhaust guard with a sharpee.

I want to get a new lever. New gear shift lever too since that's tweaked from my fall. Don't see anything in the aftermarket.

Pissed.

I drop my bike too and I'm even more pissed than you 'caused the bike wash guy dropped it! Damaged the rear brake lever, exhaust guard badly dented, hand guard slightly cracked! Check the below which I think I'm gonna install soon:

Hammerhead sets: Hammerhead Designs

Am changing exhaust soon...not gonna bother on the protector.

HammerHead doesn't make them for the 821 Hypers.
I found these though...

LighTech Black Rider Rearset with Folding Footpeg - Standard Shifting - OPPRACING Products


They don't really look like they're rearsets, maybe they just replace what's there? Pricy, but with folding replaceable tips. I emailed them to inquire as to whether the levers can be bought separately.
