Well it must have landed on something. I dropped mine once on the road, forgot to drop the kickstand, leaned her over, boom! Scratched stator cover, left fairing, and broke end off clutch lever. But that was the extent of it.

What in heaven did it land on to even ruin the hump??


P.S. ALWAYS PUT THE KICKSTAND DOWN BEFORE GETTING OFF THE BIKE

Jeez you guys.

"Mine went down in the garage"
"Mine went down in the flower garden"

MINE went down on the asphalt in front of my office during lunch rush hour! Nobody saw yet thank god, so my 155lbs ass picked up that 430lbs Busa in about 2 seconds.!.! Never let 'em see you sweat. :p

I remember seeing some parts on LaBusas (pretty good for parts) in Blue about 2 weeks ago. I will keep looking all over.

I will also cjeck in South Florida when I go down Thursday. Chin up we will find you some parts and get it looking like new.

Awww doc.. That truly sucks. I am terribly sorry to hear about it. I have nightmares about mine getting knocked over, or just falling for whatever reason.

I will definatly keep an eyeball open for 01 bits.

Well that's a real shitty Christmas gift. Hell of a way to ring in the New Year. Sorry to hear about the bad luck dude, but I will keep an eye out on E-bay and Labusas for ya. I will call my friend Byron today and see if he still is changing his out. He told me just last week that he was going to replace all the fairing work to make his bike look like the '02 silver/grey. I do know for a fact that all of his parts are in mint condition. Bike has never been dropped or wrecked. Bike is in pristine condition. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that his bike is an '01 blue/silver. Good luck and I'll keep my fingers crossed with ya.

Thanks guys! I had it on a rear lift for a chain lube and a friend (female) wanted to sit on it... then, I thought it would be a good idea to start it for her.... so, I put up the kick stand to pop it in gear... then went in for some beverages... then decided to take if off the stand.... duuuuuuuuH, forgot to put DOWN the kick stand. It landed on a floor jack for the side fairing bust and the hump hit the pit bull stand!

Those of you with leads on parts, PLEASE let me know. I do not think it is worth turning in for insurance claim... or?
