Okay I didn't know exactly where to put this thread so... here I am. I'm a VERY new rider hence most of the terms I'll be using will be layman's, excuse the no0bness. I've had my bike since Tuesday and have managed to have it dropped ... three times... >_> It''s a 2003 ZZR 250 that's done 51K K's and had only had a light drop once before. The first drop, asides from some obvious aesthetic damage and a misplaced gear shift (which we fix'd with a hammer :|) was fine. The second one was extremely minor and was just before for the last drop... which wasn't. In an empty car park at about 11PM I gave my mate a ride on my bike (had have NEVER ridden before), suffices to say it ended badly. Not entirely his fault, I'll attribute the crash to no0bness and the side of the footpath and it was a pretty epic drop. Damage wise the most disconcerting thing is the back brake which, although works fine, is bent inwards (towards the bike pretty bad). The front break leaver has been ground down close to an inch leaving the little ball on the end a faint memory . My front right (on which side the bike fell) indicator has a small shard missing. The mirror frame is cracked and displaced. And both sides of the fairings (excuse the misspelling >_> if any) are, from all the crashes, pretty scratched up. Hopefully all of the damage is cosmetic and no engine damage has occurred. At least I hope. I would like to get a rough quote on the cost of fixing some of these damages as well as any tips regarding self repair or engine damage. I'm pretty sure I've learnt some lessons here... Thanks in advance.
