2 months in, first crash.


I was turning left into the little neighborhood parking lot when I was going too fast and the glare from the sun made me misjudge the distance. Ended up highsiding but landed on my feet. Scratches on fairings, broken right side mirror, handlebars are bent. I rode it home with my buddy following behind me but my tires aren't aligned with my forks and handlebars. I have insurance but its only liability. Brake lever is also bent. How much do you think this will cost to repair if I take it to a shop? I'm 17 so I don't have that much money to spare :/
Also, is there any way insurance could help me out with this? I have progressive.

First ever crash, :/

I recently had a Right side low side here were some of my costs:

I sourced my parts on eBay and CraigsList (new parts).

New Handlebar: $80
New Bar End: $25
New Brake Pedal: $40
Fairing: $225 on eBay
Mirror?
Also not sure about wheel alignment.

Sorry to hear about your crash but holy hell I think you should change your user name to spiderman. How the hell did you land on your feet. Be happy you didnt hurt yourself.

I think I slowed down just enough to land on my feet :O
I don't think I would need new fairings ( I might just paint over it
Brake pedals are good, just the brake lever is a bit bent

Rest in pepperonis

How much do you think it'll cost for a shop to repair it?

I will

I'm just really pissed that this just happened. It was a used bike anyways that is salvaged so I don't need OEM parts. Just aftermarket is fine

I see.If the bike already has a salvage title I guess you might as well just paint the fairings and find some used replacement parts on Ebay or this forum.

The bar end is probably pushed into the throttle tube causing it to stick.Remove the bar end and go from there.

How do I remove the bar end? Do I just remove the screws located on the ends?
