Question Where can I buy bodywork Cheap??

Well I shaved a little weight off my 9 today, .... with a little lowside at GMR .
If anyone knows of a place(s) to buy OEM bodywork, please post the information here.

What I have is a 2001 ZX9R in the red/purple scheme.

What I need is the right side mid, the lower/belly piece, both right side engine cases, bar end, mirror, brake lever.

Oh, also I need the passenger seat too since I lost it earlier the same day

Thanks for any input!

Well if you've got insurance with comp and collision just file yourself a claim and for the price of your deductible you've got new bodywork. If you can't/won't go that route start watching e-bay. There is always bodywork for 9R's in the parts and accessories "motorcycle related" section of ebay motors. Then you've got the aftermarket fiberglass option. I don't know a way to get matching oem bodywork cheap.

What Shannon? Dees tings happen when you're on da edge!

I Do have full coverage, but I dont think there is enough damage to justify a claim and have my rate go up (They already paid for a F4 once)

The only place I can think of for stock bodywork (cheaper than the dealers, but still not cheap) is http://www.bikebandit.com

P.S. Glad your ok old man.

Hammer,

If my knee is down, thats on the edge for me baby regardless of speed!

YES, our lowsides were in the same darn stinking frickin stupid spot guys!!! We checked the road and it looked clean to me. I think our conclusion about cold tires is right since its the first tight turn going up.

I will check JCmotors for sure, but I want lotsa comparisions if possible.

Can we get custom leathers that say "GMR Lowsiders" on them?
