Default 1998 Suzuki Intruder VS1400

Hello, been perusing this forum for some time and got a lot of useful tips by experienced riders. Thanks!

I'm a new rider, 1 month, and still have a lot to learn. I'm in the military and took a riders course on post...the course practices on a 250cc suzuki. I bought a 1400cc bike from a fellow soldier that was deploying right after this course. Let me tell you, that there's a world of difference between a 250cc and 1400cc bike! I already dropped it 4 times (one of those times was because my dumb arse forgot to put down the kickstand when getting off).

Couple of questions:

1) I bent both pegs when I dropped it, what components do I need to buy to replace these? Looked on ebay/amazon but not sure exactly what to get

2) When starting in first gear the engine stutters, bought HEET thinking it might be condensation in the tank...but that wasn't it. Bought fuel cleanser and filled the tank with premium just in case I had too much ethanol or bad fuel...that didn't work.

I've been driving this bike to work for about a month, and feel a little confident with this bike...but not enough to get on the highway, just yet.

btw, the bike is dry and I'm looking to buy some accessories (saddlebags, floorboards and cruise control). Do they sell larger tanks? Mine is only 3.5 gallons, I hate filling up every 100 miles.
