Low Speed Low Side - Need Help - so many Old links

All,

I had a low speed lowside on Friday. Turning onto a bridge under construction. Gravel + Concrete dust plus a little too much throttle = Broken mirror, broken, bar end (Missing) scratched clutch cover, scratched gas tank and scratched seat cowl. Oh, and a broken collarbone, surgery to come on Thursday.

Looking for the seat cowl, but not sure how to find the correct one and correct color.

They list a Type 1 and a Type 2, neither lists a color:

The Tank and Clutch cover will stay scratched for awhile. I think I have the Bar End figured out and still weighing options on mirrors.

ANy help you can offer is appreciated. I tried to RTFM, but not having in luck getting through my thick skull.

You want the type 1 (A10ZA). The type 2 is Uranium Green. You can verify here in an old thread called "919 Tank and Tail Prices Thread".

At least it was a slow getoff.
Could have been worse, and collarbones are a snap to bust.
Hopefully you have a fast and nicely aligned mend and all will be well again soon.

Glad to hear you're ok.

I'm had 2 on this bike and I decided to not fix it. The tank, a cover and some other things have small dings, scratches... I just leave it. It doesn't hurt it.

Here's the logic, it's going to get banged around and these aren't the top dollar bikes. I'd just ride it unless it looks really bad. IMO, mine doesn't look bad at all.

When/if some cheap parts come up, I'll replace them, but generally I'm more concerned about the performance.

The mirrors and Bare ends are on the way now.

The other items...may or may not be fixed, but if they are, it will be a while
