Can anyone give me any advice on finding some
inexpensive replacement parts for my F4.

While in the mountains this weekend, I broke my right mirror, my rear brake
pedal, and my right peg bracket.

A set of aftermarket rearsets will set you back about $230 for somthing like Pro-Tek. This will take care of both sides and both clutch/brake levers and footpegs. The footpegs are solid mount so that will help protect the bike the next time you go down. I broke a factory rearset (called a "stay") and it cost me $65 for just that on part. The extra money for the rear sets is well spent.

Last time I looked at rearsets they were somewhere around $400. Can you send me a link to where I can find a better deal?

Try 1-888-fast-lap. That is where I got mine. They also carry Vortex and CFM rearsets. Now that I think about it, doesn't the F4 have some wierd looking factory rearset? That may explain the high cost. Still worth it though.

Nope, just checked out Arif's photos. The new VFR is the one with the wierd rearsets. The F4 should be about $230 for Pro-tek. CFM will have them for cheaper but you don't get new levers. Both will leave you without a brake light operated off the rear brake.

Thanks for the help guys!

I decided that I wasn't quite ready to
drop two or three bills on rearsets right
now. I found a dealer's parts department in
the back of Cycle World that has decent prices on all the stuff that I needed.
But I must say, $60 for a mirror seems like robbery (it was the cheapest I could find :-()

Arif,

Thanks for the offer, but I ordered the part before I read your response. I tried to be patient and wait for responses, but valuable riding days were/are passing me by :)!!
