First day, less than 100 miles, a dumbass friend (no really!) dropped it in the driveway last night. Bar end took the brunt, but a nice scratch down right side of plastic tank faring. Lovely, I know.

Anyone know OEM cost to replace it? Buffing options for scratches on the plastic?

Cheers...

Sorry to hear about your scratch-its time for new friends. Here's something that might work; http://yhst-37334516642247.stores.yahoo.net/210plscre.html, here's another, I've used this on windshields and it helped a bit.

But, you ex-friend should step up to the plate and buy you new one. But, this may not be the last time, you might want to consider something like this.





As you can see I have thoroughly tested it and there was zero damage to any part of the bike. I highly recommend H&B crash bars. This was a low speed less than 5mph, but sudden fall on gravel.

Thanks...

The red (US) plastic faring section that covers right side of gas tank. Also wraps around to shroud headlight. I suppose I'll call the dealer on Tuesday.

250miles on the odo now! Great ride yesterday. MC mecca here in WNC.

cheers.
