Hey all, I've been lurking these forums (as well as gstwin.com) for quite a while as I was learning to ride, thought I may as well join up and start contributing. I bought a 2004 GS500F about a month or two ago, also soon to sit my P's. I've clocked about a thousand k's on top of the original 6000. Here's a photo of le bike. Thanks to the pointy nose and colour scheme, I've named it Pikachu Quick question #1: After flying off the bike going down a steep driveway a few days ago, I emerged with a couple of scratches and bruises and the bike was in a bit of a bad shape. It's been more or less repaired but I'm finally looking to get the front suspension springs replaced. Any suggestions on where to go? I got quoted $250 from Lloyd Penn. Quick question #2: The fairing was cracked a bit on the upper fairing, just below the right indicator and there's also a small seam on the lower right fairing. Any suggestions on repairing/replacing? I'm also keen on rides, both Netrider or otherwise!
