    Sorry to hear that Jap_Sti_3 !! Main thing is that you're ok and not to badly hurt, and despite the dent to the wallet the bike lives on . . . i know how you feel mate, done similar in the past myself and was just as gutted !

    Aw no!!!!! :shock: I was looking at the pics of your bike in the gallery last night - really nice nick. :)

    Glad you're OK. Bike - £ouch. I don't have any bits for a 675, I have a few for my old D650 though. Mainly, left over from when I dropped it...

    Any idea why you came off :?:

    Ouch, man that's bad news :'( How did you loose it? I'm speculating diesel or similar?! The main thing is that you're ok; and managed to walk away from it! could of been worse for sure! :p
    Painful to see the 675 having cosmetic problems at the moment, but all of it is replaceable just a shame it's an extra £700 out of the piggy bank; yet again could of been a write off :| Hopefully you're not put of riding like so many are in incidents like this understandably. :)

    That's shit Ray. I did something similar. 25mph in a (nearly) straight line. 4 and a half grand later and my bike looked new again. What caused you to come off at such a slow speed ? The cause of mine was running over a drill bit. A bit more speed and I'd have gotten away with it. If you're not going down the insurance root then I have a nearside fairing panel.

    Hi Folk's Thanks for all the kind thoughts.

    Took the beast apart tonight once the knee would bend and she looks a sorry sight.

    Al parts on order and hoping to have her up and running by the weekend.

    As for being put of Craig....................... NA :D Wrong Bloke to walk away afer a spill just need to get my ass back in the sadle and make the most of the "Chiken strip less tyres :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Walets well light, the only thing i'm really gutted about are the indicators that I had shiipped over from Canada as its Dead as a dodo on the impact side. Still will have to get another set as they look Fantastic.

    As for why it slid away I have no idea, the road was wet but it always is, when I stood up it felt like being on ice but it's just one of those mysterys. :?

    Sorry Stu I did try calling you once I found the fairing in the "for sale" section and emailed but not sure it is the right one, andy chance you can fire me over a picture and I may be able to cancel the ordr as it will not go in till tomorrow. Can you tell if its the same graphics?

    :( Sorry to hear about that Jap, glad you are ok though. Its a real bummer after all the work you have put into the bike, but hey i guess thats biking and bikers , we take the rough with the smooth and start all over again .
     
  9. The first few weeks of owning my CBR, I pulled out a junction and dropped the bike, I was sick! Scuffed the fairing, broke indicator and scuffed the generator cover (or was it the altenator??).

    I bought carbon covers to cover the metal scuffs, bought ebay fairings and got the crash bobbin holes cut (albeit by a pro). It looked good after all that and cost less than new parts.

    I feel your pain.

  13. Aw FEK m8, that's a sad sight, glad you're ok though. Didn't you have the covers on your engine cases for protection, what happened to those, did they just fall off?

    Having seen what has happened to Japs bike in a low speed spill I am
    now placing an order for GBracing crash protection set for the engine.
    The price for not having them is for all to see, :eek: :(

    fantastic you've got it up and running so quick! The last picture looked so painful :)
     
  18. How come your generator casing took such a beating? I thought you had carbon crash covers on it? Didn't they work?
