Unhappy WTB A lot of parts - wrecked bike!

Hey guys, first post on here! Sucks that it had to be on such a crappy circumstance, I wrecked my 919.

A few weeks ago I had a pretty gnarly incident on the bike which basically destroyed the whole front end. I have no idea how I came out of it completely fine!

Anyway, I'm in need of a "few" parts to get it back up and running. I've purchased the mechanical parts needed but here's what I still need in order of importance:

-headlight assembly
-headlight/turn signal bracket (the black steel part)
-gauge cluster housing or complete gauges
-f4i/919 front fender (f4i forks)
-undamaged or minimally damaged tank

The bike sure took a beating. I really hope the frame is undamaged so I don't have to add that to my list!

PM or email at [email protected] if you have anything

Thanks guys,
Zach

Was it insured? Sounds like it might be best to write it off and part it out...

Welcome! Glad you're ok.

I did consider parting it out but so much of the bike is still in good condition, just couldn't let it go for such a stupid crash. Nothing to me indicates a damaged frame, seems as though the softer bits of the bike absorbed the impact pretty well. All it really needs is a headlight and I can make due with some scuffed up parts for now as the season is pretty much over.

Holy cow! The last time I crashed, the bike had a lot less damage than that, but I was really bruised up. Glad you're OK man.

I think what happened is it bent the front rim which pulled the steering hard to the left so all the front stuff smacked the ground directly. I'm glad I'm okay too. I was wearing the full track suit because it was cold haha.

How bad is your tank? I've got a tank swap in the works for mine, which is a little crunched but from being knocked over while parked, not from a crash, so it might be better than yours. I don't know how soon I'm gonna get around to it, but since you have it at the bottom of your list...

It's not incredibly bad, but it does have a pretty gnarly dent in the side. Is yours the matte green? It would be awesome if I could find a replacement in that color but it's no hurry

Do you have that cover? It looks alright, and I don't really want to pay honda $300 for the same thing if it's almost as good. Thanks for finding it though

Yeah, mine's green. I don't want to get your hopes up, it'll need dents pulled and repainted, but the dents aren't deep and it doesn't leak? I dunno, I can take some pictures and send them to you so you can decide if it's worth your time.

Yep I've already ordered one haha. May not even get here by the end of the month . No big deal, the old one still works with some zip ties.

Update: I've got the gauge housing ordered, pending a buy on tank/fender depending on if the test ride goes ok and alignment checks out. Also I messed with the headlight mount for about an hour and got it acceptably unbent so I won't need that anymore. Still need a headlight to be road legal though!

Got the forks on, unbent rims on, and new fancy Renthal bars. Took her out for a test ride. I got the gauges to still work, pics below
