Re: Breaking SV650 Naked K5 Pearl Crystal Red (broken gearbox)

I have the standard rear seat with a triboseat cover, is it just the pegs or the hangers as well? Pegs are black alloy ones and have the matching front ones too.

given that i was looking for a change, i don't think spending money to repair it, and then try and sell it is going to be economical... time to get the calculator out.
