Wrecked my bike - where do I get the small parts?

I've never dropped my bike before, then this happend

It's an 08 R6 and it got fairly busted up in the front and rear, so I have quite a few of these little fasteners and rubber grommets missing (they're in the blackberry bushes).

Do you guys know an easy way to buy some replacements? I tried eBay and they'll sell 1 for $4 and I don't even know if they'll even fit.

I'm looking for general advice on how to deal with this wreck, so if you have anything to say please do. Thanks.

P.S. Crashing SUCKS, but I'm trying to stay positive and life keeps going. I'm thankful that I didn't get seriously injured, just a few pains here and there.

Try Yamaha Parts & Accessories | Yamaha Parts House They have good prices on parts. For fasteners a good hardware store should have a selection. You may also have some luck at an auto parts store. Good luck getting it back in order and sorry too hear about your crash.

(It helps if you know the size,pitch.length and type of head you need, or better yet have a fastener from the other side for them to match)

Crashing always sucks but good to hear you're alright.

Don't get fasteners from an autoparts store, they'll fit but they fall out.

Buy OEM from here http://www.bikebandit.com/ - part #1269022

LMK if you want a hand getting the bike straightened out. Pics of the carnage?

Hit Ebay and buy all the bolts and parts that were removed from a parted same bike. Gives you spares of everything. I have done that on a couple bikes and ended up with plenty of spares I have used on others.

Ron Ayers is competitive with Bike Bandit on OEM parts. Either one is usually 20-30% less than dealers. McLendon's Hardware also sells well nuts - the squashy rubber grommet nut thingies that hold fairings together. Not sure about their selection of metric hardware though.

I had to put a project bike back together, i tried the hardware store, trying to save money and time. But eventually I ended up buying from bike bandit. They tend to be the fastest in getting parts sent out.
