    Sorry to see the damage BigO. I hope your body did not get too dinged up. Keep us posted on what you end up doing with your fairings.

      Well, got the side panel and belly pan sorted as good as they re gonna get. A paintless dent guy was able to rubout the grass/dirt stains and then I touched up the few scratches. As for the bellypan, I used some abs plastic specific bumper filler from Bondo to repair the cracks and then hit it with some metallic black spray paint I had laying around. It isnt perfect but it never is unless you buy new plastic.

        Nice job Mike! Sorry I haven't been on since the ride but that is the price I have to pay for getting to go on the ride. It was a really great time even with the thirty mile rainstorm heading back to the motel on Saturday. My jacket was still a little damp when I left Sunday morning.

          Glad you were able to make it. The rain sucked but fortunately we were heading back to the motel at the end of the ride. Nothing much worse than getting rained on early in the ride and then being wet/damp the rest of the day.

                  No one has asked, so I'm going to. What happened? Looks like a little more than a driveway mishap.

                    Going around a tight, blind right hander. Narrow lanes. As I got nearer the apex I saw a 2 ft wide batch of sand in it and adusted my line. That normally would put me in the middle of my lane. Due to the corner being so tight and narrow it put me into the oncoming lane. I had the bike back in line and I was going to get it back my lane when a Jeep came at me head on. Only option was to stand the bike up and go off road. Shoulder was grassy and about 10 wide. It then went steeply down into a small tree line. Tried to scrub off speed and remain upright but the grass provided no traction and down I went. I think the bike was practically parallel to the decline when I lost traction and went down. Hence more of sliding abrasion to the side panels as opposed to breakage. It appeared that the tip of the rear brake lever dug into the ground which is what caused it to pivot where it attaches to the bracket. The rear master cylinder also attaches to the bracket and appears to be the weak spot since it broke the bracket at that location instead of where the bracket attaches to the frame and normally breaks at the right side peg.

                      Wow Mike, that sucks! I looked at replacement panels for my ZX14R after my first drive-way tip-over in 30 years cracked and scuffed a few pieces. Big money. I am putting up with being scruffy looking for now, but should probably bite the bullet before this inflation rampage makes things even worse... and 30th anniversary model color-scheme parts are out of production!

                          Why don’t you stop by a paintless dent removal clinic and see if they can pull that dent from the pipe.

                            When I had them buff out the side panel he looked at it but said the metal was too thick/strong.

                              Thanks Mike, that explains the grass stains on the fairing! Not good that it happened but the outcome could have been much worse.

                              The repairs look pretty good. You might be able to find a used bellypan at some stage?

                                For the pipe, fill it full of expanding foam and plug the exhaust end. It should pop that dent out in a jiffy.
