OK so I am new, please dont hurt mee... So I have my shiny black 05 ZZR250 (8000k's) in the garage next to my white car. Even though I have reciepts for 6000k service I think that I will take the two rear farings off to look at the brake fluid and coolant resevior. More of an experience thing than any real concern. So I have the bike on the centre stand... Solid as a rock right... I have the LH rear faring mostly off and the screw underneath the tail light is stuck. My screwdriver is chewwing it up and its hard to push upwards and twist. I remember thinking I wonder if I could lift the rear wheel off the ground doing this. Na, I think, I am not that strong. You know wots coming... The bike rocks forward and twang.. Its not on the centre stand any more and rocking in the breeze.. Surely I am not going to drop it already!.. Remember I am at the back of the bike on my knees pushing upwards and twisting like hell. I jump up and grab it as it passes 80 degrees incline heading for my car. I managed to stop it at about 60 degrees with a slight plack paint mark from the mirror on the front side panel of my car... Saved. It is amazing what goes through your mind in that split second, like.. I wonder which of my insurance companies will sue me for the damages. Not a spectacular ending I am afraid, but at least no damage reported and some may find the warning/tip useful. Have a great day all... Its my birthday and work chrissy party all in one. It was nice of them to put it on for me.
