Interchangeable parts between 2008-2012 models?
So I was recently in an accident after trying to switch lanes over a trolley track that runs down all the main streets in my neighborhood (there is no way to avoid this fucking thing), so I went flying and my bike dropped on its right side, skidded a little and stopped. There's a little cosmetic damage on the outside I'm not too worried about but the stay step (I believe thats is what it is called...the bracket on the right side of the bike that the foot peg attaches to and simultaneously keeps the break pedal secured in place) snapped in two so I'm having to replace it. I called around and everyone was saying that I'd have to order the 2012 version straight from the dealership (about $90) and saying the parts in between years are not interchangeable. But I saw the part on amazon that looks identical and it says 2008-2012, implying that they are all interchangeable. I also saw a 2010 model on the street the other day and knew if I took my Allen wrenches out and took the part off that bike it would fit perfectly on mine. Any knowledge about this? BTW my bike is a 2012 Ninja 250r.
