F4 down

Went to track day yesterday and after the second morning session I hear this large crash. Had my back turned to my bike, turned around and found my bike down after it was hit by another rider hit while it was parked. I couldn't say anything for fear I might blow up while the guy was apologizing. While looking it over I thought, well I am still going to finish this track day and discuss having the cosmetics fixed with him a little later, then I noticed the brake lever was snapped off. No spares available so track day shot also.

Wow!
Total commiseration from here richd...

but it's better than a trip to the ER along with bike damage.

Someone around here will probably have some parts for you.

Not trying to provoke you, but could you of parked up in a place where an errant bike was less likely to engage yours, or could this of no way have been foreseen?

Anyway a real shame all the same, and it ruined a good day out.

There's usually designated parking spaces at track days, not too many options to try and get away from idiots.

@ MVBERT, was just parking in a area that other bikes park in a row next to our classroom sessions. Guys bike apparently stalled and he rolled back turning into it. I could of parked in a different area and will in the future. I was pretty pissed off right after, but things happen and staying mad does not change the fact it happened. He is paying for repairs/parts without a fuss and even bought me a track day.

@Donsy, thought I might be able to find one cheaper than through the dealer. Just for the right mid fairing it will be $1136.00 and just trying to help the guy out on cost.

Sorry to hear about the incident but as they say, 'shit happens'. Glad to hear it is only bike damage and that you didn't 'blow up'. Sounds like the owner of the other bike is a good guy.

As for parts, another forum member is after a clutch lever only and I'm selling both brake & clutch lever as a pair. Happy to split them if both levers are sold. cost is $50 AUD plus postage for one lever. I also have a pair of CRG folding levers for sale at $150 plus postage. Both sets are from a 750 F4 and are in Melbourne, Australia.

Do you know what the cost of postage is? It is hard to see, is there a spring opposite the adjuster?

I guess I could of worded it a little better about the "blow up" part, I am a pretty calm person and I guess I was just speechless.
