Well Damn

Sup friends? I had a close call on the RC the other day leading to me laying her on her side. A car failed to yield and the rest is history. No major damage to me thanks to riding gear. However my bike didn't fair so well. Anyone know where I can find a used Left COWL SET in good condition for a 03? The one I have can be fixed but if i can find a used one I might go that way.

Well been doing some thinking, I have a couple different ways I can go.
1. Cheapest and fastest way. I can buy some parts from a forum member and have tank fixed by body shop.
2. I can have the plastic and tank painted in a custom color.

What do y'all think?

Have some new toys coming cant wait till they get here. Ordered from Riders Discount a set of Yoshimura RS-3 Slipons witch aren't top notch I know but have to be better then the Dan Moto trash I put on last year... not even a year ago and the carbon fiber is now burnt and brown. A set of Woodcraft clipons witch I wasn't going to order but wife paid for everything in the cart from ebay oops but oh well.
Also looks like I may be painting the bike in a custom color thinking a Candy Orange of some type or a Chameleon color not sure yet going to look at colors tomorrow. Wish me luck lol

most members here are huge fans of OEM livery,but imho I have only seen a half dozen custom jobs that work for me 4 of which are race replicas if you do go custom please share your ideas here and think about simply keeping the graphics the same and doing a color only change (one of my favorites was silver on blue)

Haha I was thinking the same thing, but this is never an issue for me.

I have some side panels that are OEM, primed and just need a new spray job if you're interested?

Good luck with getting it all back together.

Has just realized that I don't care what it costs until I get the bill! :roll eyes: ...
