Un-f#cking Believable

I can't express how frustrated I am right now. Riding buddy is out of town so I will have to vent to you guys...

Picked up my 2006 910S a couple weeks ago. Its the first bike I've ever loved SOOO much. I think it goes with out saying why. Since then, it has been backed into by some drunk ass, tipping it over on its left side. I was in the store for just a second, and come out to find it with the rear signal broken, bar end scuffed, nothing too serious.

Just when this was starting to become a distant memory, I take the bike out to meet a freind for dinner last night. I park on the sidewalk (very wide) in front of the place, not too far from the valet podium. I do this cause I don't give a shit about the "rules," I just want out of the way from traffic and the sort. I want to avoid the tip over.

Ride home after a couple hours, and notice the head light is rattling something terrible. can't think of why, until this morning I go out to see what the problem is. Some EVIL 'person' (doesn't deserve to belong to the human race) tipped it over on the right side. This time the passenger peg is dinged, the FRAME is scrapped, shifter is marred, headlight popped out of its back thing, etc., etc.!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, I'm trying to make peace with it. but in the mean time, I was hoping someone could tell me how to remove the air box inlets. the right side is all loose and saggy after the impact. looking under the ignition cover (also popped out of wack), the tank seems to be out of alignment on its rubber mount. Any help with the repair/inspection of these things is greatly appreciated.

I don't know if I'll ever be able to park this machine out of my sight again.

Sorry for the long winded post...

I'm really sorry to hear about the mishaps...

This thread might be of help.

Basically, you remove the two side panels. One end pops out and then the other end slides. Underneath on each side is an adjustment bracket the pushes against the frame.

the inlets are connected undneath the tank as the photos in the post show. they are hard to get to. You'll have to lift the tank up a bit to adjust. Perhaps a tab broke off? You'll need to remove the cover near the ignition as well to move the tank.

Wall Street is the only place that people ride to in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway.

Thank you Jack. After getting the side covers off, I now see that both of the aluminum tank support brackets are broken. The lower part of the half circle that rests on the frame cross member is held on by the rubber isolator. what a bummer. It think it should be ok to ride though. (?)

Sorry about your misfortune. Your story is maddening... almost as maddening as I felt when some bastard hit my dog and took off when I was 12 years old.

It's hard to believe people can be such a--holes. Not that it matters, but where are you from?

I'm thinking of going to the restraunt and speaking with the manager. I would like to know why the valet didn't tell me about the thing being tipped over. The whole thing is such a mystery to me.
