Hi all It 31st of Dec so you all know what days it is. On this surpose to be wonder day, which it started out to be. I decided to give my baby Z a service (my 1st DIY) to start the new year I started off going to my local parts store to get my DIY servicing supplies, the usually - Motul engine oil, oil filter, Belray chain lube, degeaser and jus for good measure new brake pads. Got home and let her cool down aliitle, drained her oil and and sprayed a sh*t load of degeaser on her chain and engine to clean her up(being careful not the spray any rubber parts), had a beer while she finished dripping, plugged her up topped her off, wash her off, and whoa she came up spanking new. Next i replaced her brake pads and took her for a spin to test her stopping power and to warm the chain again. Lubed the chain with the trusty ol Belray chain lube. wait a little for it to settle than took her for another spin, as all of you in Syd know what the weather was like on this day, i jus lover the free air con. hehehe Now comes the part that destoryed my day. Been so hot that day i stopped into the corner store for a quick pit shop, while in there i man appoached me seening me get off my baby Z, advertising his motorbike wreckers business, jus my luck i was trying to find a wrecker nearby to replace broken indicators and bolts. On my way out i spot a car driving pass my baby then started backing up, i went back in to the store cuz i forgot my drink, and then i hear the worst sound, a sound that every rider fears to hear, the sound of your baby crashing to the tarmac, NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! The drivercame out saying Sorry, then he tried lifting my baby up with no sucess losing his grip and droping her again before i could get there to save her from the Ding dong of a mofo. On 1st inspection only a few scratchers and a small crack in the flairing, i can live with that, iam saying to myself,he offered me $100 for the damage(as i was goin to repair other damages done by me in the near future) i accepted it, but at a closer look, BAH WTF did you do?, i said as i notice the part holding the rear brake pedal and right side peg, snapped clean off. I have no rear brake now, i told him another $100 wont cover that, he gave me another $200 to replace the part. As i didnt know how much it was goin to cost to get 1 from a wrecker, that seemed alright, so iam hopin it isnt more than that. NOTE: the only reason why i accected cash and not by insurance is that i dont have the time to go though the process and the damage was minimal, the bike is still ridable just with no peg and rear brake till i get it replace. So that was my story, my first broken part since i had my baby, To continue the post, if you have story that involves your baby being pushed to the point of no return, post it up and if anyone knows how much the [art cost to replace give me a yell (94 ZZR250) Thanks all for reading my post.
