I laid my bike down about a month ago when someone cut me off and I ended locking my brakes. The accident bent the forks and triple trees and gave me some road rash. Living in the great state of Michigan and not having the law in favor of motorcycles I did not recieve any insurance money. The dealer wanted $1000 to repair my bike, but being a poor college student I decided to do it myself. It was a pretty big pain but I got it fixed. I had to remove the fender, wheel, forks, triple trees, steering column, handlebars, and tank. check it out...
