Bike Story

Ok so what is the dealieo? Riding a curve in WV...hit some gravel...went down. Nice. But here's the extent of the damage. Estimate $9,500.00 not including the exhaust. The reality tho, underneath all the bodywork damage...there is very little wrong with the bike. So here's my list of what I'm gonna even bother replacing...maybe you guys can keep an eye out...

Front brake lever
right side faring
tail section
right side mirror
inner faring
HMF inner pipe sections beteen cans and mid.

my subframe is slightly tweaked...but not bad.
My front fairing stay needs to be bent back slightly.

And other minor stuff.

Thanks to Andy at Honda Suzuki of Warren for hooking me up and giving me the lowdown on what the bike will really need.

Chuck I feel your pain, when my 954 went down at Mid-Ohio I picked it up and rode it back to my hotel. It was all cosmetic since my frame slider saved the engine and still the repair cost was $7200.00 which State Farm called a total loss. Andy also did the estimate for me and mine included my ARATA exhaust...

Hope you get back on the road soon
