So the first step was to strip back what's left of the fairings, and do a thorough assessment of the damage.
Ok, so technically that was the second step. Step 1 was to dig into the grossly inadequate (thanks Nico) quantity of cold beer.
PUBLIC EDUCATION LESSON 2: LABEL EVERYTHING... EVERYTHING
For every bolt you remove, put it into a sealable sandwitch bag, and label it.
(Photo to come)
Will need to replace the rear fender eliminator (previous owners home job) with the original Honda OEM part to pass roadworthy again:
Cosmetic only, and not structural damage to front fork tube:
Crack in Right Hand Side Rearset & Bent brake lever.
The plug for the Tip Sensor was ripped off during the crash - this will need to be rewired:
The damage to the front fairing stay:
The Tip sensor has seen better days, and has all it's mounts broken.
- the RHS engine cover is scratched
- The Clutch Cable Adjuster is broken
- The ASV brake lever is scratched
- Fairings are completely borked (duh)
- Bar ends are scratched
- Screws to hold the Front Master Cylinder lid are bent
- Front Master cylinder lid is scratched
- Front Speedo case is cracked
- Rear Speedo Case has had its mounting points torn off
- Will need original indicators (front & rear) for roadworthy
- Dent in the radiator (not leaking though)
- Grips have a slash in them
- Clutch switch is broken off it's mounts
Now that I have it stripped, and I've identified all the broken bits, time to start cleaning while I wait for a few parts to arrive.
For cleaning trip, nothing beats Meguiars Gold Class Trim Detailer.
Oh, also: this came with the bike:
It's a Yoshi RS-5 slip-on, Stainless steel with a Carbon end cap. (don't you love Yoshi's "just spray it with expanding foam" packing method).
