Before I say anything, she's a 1994 red yamaha virago xv250. I recently had a low speed fall (lots of leaves and a thick, thick branch) with the virago and here is the damage assessment: 1. right mirror is mangled beyond repair 2. left airbox (the chrome plastic thingi) got a huge crack, and plastic foundations are shattered 3. 20c piece sized dent in the fuel tank (just on the 'virago' logo on the left, a bit of paint gone too ) 4. front mudguard grazed (doesn't look too bad) 5. gearshift lever bent (managed to bend it back a bit, but still out of position) 6. sore right kneecap, but feeling ok now And here come the questions: Alright, now what can I do about these problems? The only solution i've thought about is to go to a bike wrecker and source new mirrors and chrome plastic thingi but I have no idea how much this'll cost. Will it be worth getting the parts from a wrecker or will getting new parts be better? Are there any reliable/good wreckers near the St. George area? What can I do about the dent in my tank? How do I remove my bloody gearshift lever? *off topic: If my (dry) battery is almost out of liquid (sulfuric acid/distilled water), will it still have a charge if I leave it and top it off later?
