keeping track of my repair after dump. pics!!

Sorry if this is posted twice I havent started many threads on here and I posted it but couldnt find it pop up so I re did it... if its up twice then let me know Ill ask M.o.M to delete one of merge or whatever needs to happen

So i just wanted to make my own thread about my bike. As I have posted before I recently dumped my bike. This thread is going to show me doing upgrades and replacements of the things I need and am now just doing because I may as well. I have ZERO mechanical but a couple friends will help me out and it seems all of these things are fairly simple.... heres a list of the things I purchased so far and am in the process of doing.

OEM Rear sets (powder coated red)
OEM passenger pegs (powder coated black)
new OEM right clip on
OEM brake lever and master cylinder
Side fairings (painted black)... fixed the ones i rashed in the crash.
rear fairing (cant decide whether to paint black or not)
rear seat cowl
smoked integrated tail light
smoked flushmount turn signals
Powder coating the rims red.
smoked head light lens covers.
chain guard painted black.

basically in the end the whole bike will be black except the headlight fairing, the tank, rearsets, rims, and passenger pegs (which I prob wont put back on the bike since I doubt my wife will get back on it since I dumped it)... I am also considering not painting the rear fairing black and leaving that and the seat cowl red or fairing black and seat cowl red.But I cant picture the way any of them look. I want it to look clean and good but not like every one elses bike... I need someone to photoshop a couple pics for me (id be willing to pay)
here some pics of so far.before, after crash and mid renovation.lol

squidding hard. I recently invested in gear and boots instead of my tight tee and lebron james kicks.lol

Well you learned what not to do. As far as bike repair, everything sounds good. I'd throw on a set of frame sliders (I like woodcraft). Also, invest in your riding skill whethe it be track time or additional MSF courses.

Good luck.

thanks! Yeah I sure did!...I plan on taking a course at a track when I move back to a real state in a few months. New hampshire has one in october but I cant make the 4 hour drive.

I plan on doing frame sliders.. do you know of any that you would recommend that dont require any major surgery or cutting? i guess kinda just bolt on.

I had Motovation frame sliders on my 636. I liked them a lot, but they required cutting. If you opt for no-cut sliders, I would research them thoroughly. Many no-cut sliders are reported to work fine for dropping your bike in the driveway, but fail when you really need them.

LOL i know you were serious but it was just funny the way that came out "fine for dropping the bike in the drive way". That def makes me not want them haha.... maybe some one has had no cut sliders that worked well? im just afraid to go cutting anything. But if its necessary to get a decent product Ill have it done.

There very well might be some that are designed well so that they will hold up. If there are, they likely have been discussed here at some point...

Have fun with the rebuild!

without boring you with a long story.. I was going around a corner at about 15 or 20mph and hit a patch of sand from construction. Bike slid from under me. I dont recall but I assume I panicked and hit the break mid turn.

no she wasnt on the back but it scared the crap out of her that I fell so I doubt she will ever get on a motorcycle. she hates them.

yes i got road rash!

This.

I had trex frame sliders on my old 636 that folded when crash tested. I've crashed tested woodcrafts on my 09 twice this ear and they have held up great. Go for a cut style. Cutting the fairings isn't as bad as it sounds, ESP since you planned on painting anyway.

well now the fairings are already painted and ready to put back on. the rear fairing is the only one that isn't painted because I havent received it in the mail yet(which makes me realize I havent gotten a conf # and I ordered over a week ago). The guy thats painting them for me might feel comfortable doing it tho.
