hey guys, so gots me a 84 cb750f, well it sure didn't take me long to lay it down. I had been riding it for several days and feeling pretty good about it, so I went for a bit of a cruise. went about 30 miles when it started to rain, rode in the rain for another 7-8 miles, then stopped somewhere to say hi to someone. well leaving the parking lot I must have let the clutch out to fast, or maybe hit some oil or something, the back wheel went out and I went over.
the damage list to me:
1 sprand wrist
1 fractured wrist
3 sprand fingers
2 bruised knees
several massive cuts
now heres what really hurts, the damage to the gear and bike:
bent fender bracket(easily fixed)
broken headlight assembly
broken turn signals
a broken clutch cover
lightly scratched brand new vr-1 helmet
nice hole in my brand new joe rocket ballistic mesh jacket
nothing to major, the helet can be touched up and buffed, I don't know what to do with the jacket, its so cool looking, I was thinking about contacting the company and seeing if they will send me a patch of material or something.
about the bike, it would not star so I took it to my local shop, they worked on it, replaced some wies to get it running, but they say it needs alot of work with he melted relays. my question it if the replaced the wires correctly( I know they did, very honest people) and it runs and functions correctly then why would I still need to replace the relays? I haven't gotten my shop manual yet, so I'm still trying to figure out the mechanics of a bike, like what is a stator? and can I run it for now without a clutch cover? thanks guys. I'm not embarrased about this. it had to happen, everyone crashes there first bike right? I'm not done by a long shot, going done my thought was no not my bike
