Bonjour compagnon canadien, ma suggestion est que tu cherches un BK-7m usagé; ils peuvent être très bon marché...

Here is my translated answer: hi fellow canadian, my suggestion is that you search for a used BK-7m; they sometimes sell for very cheap...
Harperimo was told by his tech that Roland doesn't have any motherboards available, so his question is: where can he find one?
I guess that even if anybody can supply a board, a used unit would be a cheaper and reliable option, IMHO.
BK-9 + home-made FC-7 for versatility, FP-80 for piano sounds and simplicity.

Personally, I'd dump the entire dropped unit if a motherboard can't be found by Roland, and simply use a used one itself. You never know what other issues it may have in addition to the cracked motherboard (that means a serious drop!) and in all probability the new (used) one will be in better shape than simply transferring the motherboard.

You should certainly keep the dropped one for emergency spares, though. Buttons, jacks etc. may still be in good shape.
