Damn!

For those that have ever tipped their bike over and caused $800.00 worth of damage, you are not alone.

I got out of work late last night. It was quite cold, I straddled the stallion, put my right foot down while leaning slightly right......I put it right on a patch of oil, my foot slid out and I did the splits and the bike fell

Vortex sliders dont work......it bent when it hit the ground, so it scuffed the lower right panel, since it was cold, the windshield cracked, the tab going along the windshield on the upper fairing cracked off, my midpipe hit and has a healthy dent in it.

WTF!

Damn bro that really sucks!

As far as sliders go (mind you i do not know) but are'nt they suppose to protect the bike on a slide as opposed to brunt downward force?

were they attached to the frame by a bolt? is that what bent?

Damn Craig, that stinks. It's suprising that a stationary fall caused that much in damage. I hope you can get the parts soon to fix it.

Yeah, I guess in theory, when you lowside you'd be closer to the ground already, and the force wouldnt be as great. Yes the bolt bent (Grade 10 hardened steel) but I thought it would absorb it. I have a set of LSL sliders Im gonna put on, they have a triangular platform underneath the distributes the load when the bike goes down. I wish I had already installed them. Also, any slider is made to protect the frame and not the fairing anyway, Im just pissed.

I also wish I had solid footpegs on, my midpipe wouldnt have gotten dented then either (But with my luck the frame tab for the rearset would have snapped )....Oh well,live and learn. LSL picture attached.

Been there done that. One time, I must not have put the kickstand all the way down. As I walked away from the bike to put on my gear, I hear a crack! Looked back and my bike was on it's side. The LP frame sliders did it's job though. No new scratches and all that broke was one mirror.

I also managed to lock my keys along with my wallet and cellphone in the trunk of my bike. Fortunately, I was able to remove the seat using a fellow rider's took kit. Shit happens.

I was always under the impression that frame sliders don't really do much to save your plastics, only your frame for when the bike is sliding like a motherfucker down the pavement. If I had a GSXR1000 and I dropped it, I'd cry... I've dropped my bike plenty of times at a standstill, once even from stopping it on a patch of ice, and I'll say this... a Ninja 250 takes the ground very well and a VFR800 doesn't

The exact same f'n thing happened to me Dec. before last in the Menard's parking lot. The bitch of it was, I had already left work for the night and was about a block away when I decided I should go back and get some zip ties to put my new plates on. Went in, came out, put on the plates, went to ride out and I swear I BARELY started to let the clutch out when the back just went to the side on me (it was the weirdest thing...I swear it felt like the rear was on casters) and before I could do anything about it I was on my back and the bike was on her side. Same f'n thing, scratched lower (although barely noticable) bent front and rear brake lever, scratched clutch cover, scratched mid pipe cracked front fairing just past the mirror mount. Grand total for the f-up ~ 800.00 So sorry to hear bro....
