I've been a member of the BMWMOA for 3 years now, but this is my first time posting here.
I have a 2009 F650 GS twin, and lowsided in a corner late last November. I was fine and most of the damage to the bike didn't seem too bad. However, the most worrying thing was that the left passenger peg got pulled outward when the bike went down. At first I thought I could simply bend it back into place, but my attempt quickly convinced me that I either need a stronger me, a longer crowbar, or both.
The peg is (I believe) attached to the rear subframe. I'm bringing it into a dealership to be looked at on Tuesday, but would like to get some opinions as to whether this is something that can simply be bent back, or whether I'm looking at a new rear subframe (ouch!)
At the bottom I've attached two photos. The first gives an indication of how far out the passenger peg has been pulled out; the second a close up of the subframe, where you can see where it has bent.
Advice and opinions are appreciated. I want to do the right thing, but if I can get away with a less expensive repair, I'd much prefer it.
Thanks in advance for your assistance,
