Help with downed bike - June 25, 2009, 06:53 PM

I'm not sure if this is the place to post it so if its not Mods please move it to the right place.

I was seconds away from parking my SV650 in the garage when I took a slow left turn on to the driveway a little too slow and the bike went down. Thankfully I cut off the engine switch right away and after a couple of tries was able to get the bike upright. (Some gas started leaking out though before I could get it upright)

Since I had frame sliders on the bike not much damage to the fairings but my clutch lever is bent and my gear shift foot peg broke off from an initial inspection.

So being a noob (this is the point where you can def laugh if you havent already) , I am unsure if this warrants calling my insurance or just getting the parts and fixing it myself. Any helpful suggestions/help would be appreciated.

You're not required to call insurance.

If you have collision, you can call insurance and make a claim to cover the cost. However, your insurance premium is going to go up.

If the damage isn't all that bad, and you can afford to buy whatever you need out of pocket, you may save more money in the long run to just pay for it yourself.

Chances are those parts are much less expensive than your deductible, so it's pointless to screw up your insurance rates with a claim.

You don't want to call insurance co. they'll just raise your rates. SKYHIGH!!!!!!!!!Fix it yourself if you have any questions .net members can help. Remember the only stupid is the 1 you don't ask.

thanks for the responses guy. i figured as much that going with insurance might be the more expensive route. beyond that if any sv650 riders out there have some suggestions would again be appreciated.

j/k

Is it a first gen or second?

A good resource for all things SV is svrider.com. That's where I learned a lot about my SV.

Oh no!
I'm sorry you dropped your bike! Been there, done that!
You can definitely fix it yourself in very little time! If the clutch lever is bent but still useable, you can put off fixing it for a bit (depending on how badly it's bent). If you bend it back, it might compromise the metal.
You can pick up a clutch lever for $10 -$20

And the same for the foot peg. If you need help putting them on, let me know.

Also, if you can still ride it, I'd say to go ahead and ride it! I rode around with half of a foot peg for about 6 months until I finally replaced it. The clutch lever on my R6 was bent when it got knocked over in DC, I rode with it bent, sold it bent, and the current owner is still riding with it bent.

@JWZelibor its not a naked sv so no luck on that for you

@iceblizzxdc dont you worry manning up and fixing it myself

actually the clutch lever itself is not bent, more so the lever holding got turned a little bit (I dont know how to describe it too well) so the lever itself is usable. just a matter of straightening out the holding

Also with the foot peg I actually meant the peg on the shift lever that broke off, so basically i cant shift with my foot right now hence the bike is non ridable.

Also it is a 2nd gen sv
