    Hi I've got a 07 p7f that i annoyingly dropped onto its right hand side last summer and the poor girl needs some new fairings and a pillion footrest I had a closer look at the damage yesterday and it's broken the aluminium bracket that the foot rest bolts onto, not the actual rest. I'm going to...

After pulling all the tail fairings I could see that the subframe is twisted counter clockwise a bit and bent to the right a bit as well. I was reading up about...

    I just bought a pre-owned 2013 zx6r, I got a great deal on it but there were some things that needed work. I guess this thread will help out with buying your first used bike, or those of you that had similar situations. So paid 9,450 for a bike with 700 miles on it with the 600 mile service...
