What a similar story to mine. I was also hit while parked, also at a doctor’s appointment, and also witnessed by someone who took the person's Plate. I called the police and my insurance and it’s not worth pursuing as my deductible is $500.
The damage is as follows:
- Left rear turn signal cracked
- upper rear outer fairing cracked
Unfortunately I’m having problems finding the exact parts for a reasonable price. Can anyone help? I think the part numbers are:
- 33650-KYJ-305 signal
- 83680-KPP-T000 outer white fairing
I’m in Canada and pretty much most of the sites that have these are nowhere near here.
Meantime, i tried removing the fairing and using epoxy tape and touch up paint to keep it looking fresh until I get parts. I could NOT get the inner fairing (the black part) off the bike and had to unscrew the outer fairing (white part) to fix it. Unfortunately putting everything back together was a challenge Because that’s also the side where the trunk lock is and there’s a little bit of play everywhere now. It was REALLY difficult to maneuver the tools and screws in tight enough and not being able to get the black part (inner fairing) off hurt my efforts for sure.
Any advice/ideas on how to keep everything nice and tight when I get the new fairing and eliminate play, especially near the key lock?
