Hey guys
i was riding durin the evening when i hit a freakin hole and did an endo. it as crazy but i am fine and suprisingly the bike is fine. the handle bars had rotated forward a little in the clamps and the forks were slightly tweaked but fixed all that already. only thing pisses me off is i broke the mount from the front number plate to the forks. anyone else break this yet? how much does a new front number plate cost? see ya'll

If all that happened to your bars was that they rotated a little bit, your very lucky.
My stock bars were pure JUNK. They were bent after my first wreck, which really wasn't even a bad getoff.

If you're talking about the headlight shroud, that's about 70 bucks. I've busted mine up so many times. I just use thin sheet aluminum and rivets to hold mine together. It's not pretty, but if I got a new one every time I crashed I'd have a garage full of busted up headlight shrouds.

I did the same thing and I cut the old tabs off and got some aluminum cut two peices about 3inches buy3/4 inch and bent them at a 90 degree angle at the front drilled holes in them and bolted them two the old holes but you half two drill new holes in the front of your number plate :)
