1st crash in over 10 years! Looking for OEM plastics.
It was bound to happen. I haven't crashed in so long, considering I put about 20K a year on my bike alone - that kind of good luck doesn't last. Cold tires, maybe some fluid on the road, not sure. I pulled out of our apartment complex - like I do every day, and I just got spit off. I remember stopping, looking left, then making the 90 degree right, gave it gas and it just spun. I am used to spinning it up, but only if I am doing it on purpose. I am sure the cars behind me got a great show, as the wicked highside landed me on my back. Anyway, lesson learned. Watch out on cold tires, and low light conditions.
So, I gotta get back on it ASAP. Helmets and magneto covers are cheap to replace. Looking around for OEM plastics, and virtually every place I have seen on the 'net, is around $500 - $600 for the left fairing. Before I plunk down the cash, I wanted a 2nd opinion from you guys. Any cheaper alternatives? Also looking to replace the footpegs. Cost is an object, and all the rearsets I priced are around $250. Anything cheaper out there or should I just replace with OEM?
