Ouch II

Well my 2 week old Vulcan 750 hit the pavement to day with me on it. Dude turned directly in front of me. I swerve and didn't hit him but spun out and slid. Just a couple abrasions and bruises. Feels like a rib is bruised too, but could be worse. I was able to limp in and drive the bike later this evening. guy didn't even stop to help.

now i need a new headlight and assembly, housing for speedometer, and tail light assemblies scratched up. Does anyone know of a place to get used parts of cheap parts?

Keep an eye out here for someone parting out. You can also check the "vulcan 750 parts on ebay" section. Glad you're ok, good luck...

Good to know you weren't seriously hurt, any time you lay it down is a bad day! I saw a Speedo housing on ebay last night, saw a tail light assembly there as well.

I'm feeling better, still scabbed up a bit and didn't sleep so well with the ribs being sore, but not too bad. I took the bike out a couple times and have not noticed any mechanical problems. I got a new bulb for the headlight and it didn't work. I was hoping that would fix it. Got to figure this out or I can't ride at night.

Any ideas how to trouble shoot a headlight problem? Or should I just bite the bullet and pay someone? Everything else works turn indicators and taillight brake light. Thanks in advance.

Jim
