Default Well it happened...dropped my bike :/

It was about 2 weeks ago now and it was a Saturday. I just finished washing my bike and figured I'd take it for a quick spin around my apartment parking lot. Well the night before I adjusted the clutch so it engaged and disengaged quicker so I was not quite used to it yet. And of course I decided not to wear protection only a helmet (I usually wear full gear) since I was just going for a spin around my parking lot. Needless to say I ended up losing control of the bike and I went down. The kickstand ended up going into my ankle causing an open wound fracture and I had severe road rash down my left side. I'm doing better and the rash has mostly healed on my arm and upper leg can't tell my lower leg since I'm in a splint. But from now on I can say no matter how far or slow I'm riding I'm riding full gear. Thankfully i was wearing my helmet and my friends were outside to help. The bike is in pretty good condition ill post a pic or two of its side.Well it happened...dropped my bike :/-imageuploadedbymo-free1351895886.152190.jpgWell it happened...dropped my bike :/-imageuploadedbymo-free1351895912.148945.jpg

Shitty to hear, hope you heal up soon. I wrecked my 2011 650 in June and now riding the 2012 650. It was almost more painful not having a bike.

Yea it's tough. I think my clutch case might have a small crack in it too. So I might try to jb weld it. But it's tough being stuck in a wheelchair and not being able to ride. Thanks for the wishes mate! Enjoy that 2012, mines a 2006.

Definitely loving it, although my thumb is still sprained but the foot and ribs have healed nicely. Don't rush yourself and use the winter to fix anything on the bike that's broken

Crack in the stator cover if it was on the left side. Sucks, heal fast.

Ok thanks! And sadly I'm in Florida for college but I don't plan on rushing anything. I want to make sure I'm healed before riding again.

Good luck with that! You'll get the itch much earlier than you will heal.

Sorry for your down. Hope you do get well quick. What is up with the frame slider? That thing is bent up and does not look like it helped much. What kind is it?

It's attached around the frame rather than to it and since the bike hit the ground and slid I think it moved it up. But it did its job the frame isn't bent and the engine is all good. This is the second time the bike has been dropped on its left side, when my uncle owned it he dropped it on its left which moved the slider a bit so I loosened the screws readjusted it and then tightened. So it tends to move but seems to have worked so far.

i have similar-looking frame sliders and was wondering the same thing... I don't know what kind they are, and I've never taken the top fairing off, don't plan to either.

Maybe I will go and check mine, see if mine are attached to frame or around it.
