    Default 2005 upper cowling

    Hey, I was out for a ride Sunday on a back country road when an ATV came out of the woods and cut across in front of me. The upper cowling is toast, the radiator cover is busted and my rear brake lever is bent, can likely straighten it. i have had this bike a while and want to get it back to the great shape it was in (has over 100,000kms and runs great). Anybody have any advice on where to pick up the parts I need?

    For a cheap but effective repair remove the cowl and JB weld it from behind. It's a good idea to use a reinforcing web and several coats of JB to strengthen the bond. Fill the hairline fracture on the shiny side with touch up paint and buff it good, it will be barley noticeable and save you $.
