Both were slides afaik, if you’re on Facebook you should join the GSXS UK Group, one of the bikes belongs to a chap on there and he’s just had it repaired by Fowlers.

Yeah been a rough few weeks including putting the dog down.

I don’t think so regarding diesel, I was just going faster than I should have been on slick roads and leaned it over, lost grip and went down.

Totally my fault x
I feel sorry 4 ya.
It's bad enough crashing but having to put the dog down hurts the most..
Get well quickly..

Suckage man! I'm sorry and hope you are able to get you and your bike on the road soon. If you were in the states, I have an OEM exhaust I could give you. Probably some in the UK somewhere.
Bar end mirrors, aftermarket levers, and bar-ends are everywhere for cheap. These levers are good and cheap.

+ if you need a hand sorting this out, let me know.

I've had the panels off and have previous experience of sorting out low-sided bikes (had a phase a long time ago).

Thanks so much Kiwi, I’ll check it out, I’m pretty swollen / can’t move today or make a fist etc, so not completely unharmed but as good as considering what could’ve been!

Thanks for the tips man! I wanna keep the bike stock though as I really enjoy the way it looks

Sorry about your bike my friend....but you are good...which is really good. Cheers
Thank you mate

That would be amazing mate, the Avon’s are designed for wet weather and heat up quickly, I believe they are some of the best performing wet tyres out atm?

But the edge of the tyre is slick so it was my fault, I leaned too far and moved from the grooves on the tyre to the slick edge and obviously in the wet that has no grip at all, but in the dry it gives you extra grip haha 😂

Thanks mate, should be okay I stripped it for the radiator! Going to be a slow repair due to costs but bit by bit I’ll fix her up again.

Bent bars aside she rides just fine now as I’ve had the exhaust and foot lever bent back out, and the front lever I had adjusted closest, so adjusted that furthest out and feels the same etc.

So I’m replacing the cover, indicator, and bars first, that means it’s road legal and riding safely.

Then I can sort fairings and all the pretty stuff later on x

I don’t suppose anyone in the forum who swapped to bar ends would have an original mirror?

I see your end-can is black, the end can i have is the earlier bright-metal finish. I guess you want the stock black look. But it is there if you do want it (£30 to you)

I think people over estimate the protection that crash bungs provide in terms of engine protection. I’ve fitted them to my bike but these two bikes make them seem pretty pointless - these are two different bikes….. View attachment 47182

Frame sliders do minimize damage to your bodywork, but their main function is preventing terminal damage to your engine.

but doesnt do any good if the actual slider breakss/bends. gotta pay for the sturdiest/direct bolt frame ones. the ones that go around fairings are crap. they break right off generally.

GB racing Engine covers maybe a worthwhile consideration too

should be able to replace the damage for less than a grand

I was skeptical about ordering from japan but
the parts arrived quicker than 3 different orders made from Italy recently

took about 5 days - 4 different orders

very impressive
