Yet another thread by the great questioneer.

Since I dumped my bike, im gonan be fixing it this week, but I need to know, will I get shit for having a really bad side fairing?

Im gonna fix ALL leaks if anything, and my strator cover and all that, but Im not gonna have money to replAce my fairing, they are still in 1 peice.. Just..black :P

Ill get the money to fix whatever I HAVE to fix but pretty much, my tail is fucked.. (In one peice, but fucked, will probabllky have to Duct tape that mother fucker shut using a big ass roll )

Other then leaks is there anything I should REALLY look out for?

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

You can run it with no body work, as long as the bike is mechanically fine. The only thing is, just make sure your bodywork is secure, not flapping around ready to fall off. If it is, just take it off and run without it, duct tape the shit outta it, or drill some holes and zip tie it. Or plastic weld works pretty well for some people too.

Doesn't matter if your bike looks like shit. You shoulda seen mine last time I had it at the track. No fairings, electrical system zip tied to my fairing bracket, dented and rusty gas tank... but it ran pretty damn well and thats what counts

As long as it runs, and is safe to ride, then everything else is only cosmetic.

The road rash and busted plastic just add character

Hope you're feeling better today. I know road rash burns like hell. Heal up quick.
