Hey guys! I am new to the forums and well I got a 2008 R6 liquid silver about 2 months ago and 4 hours after buying it a friend of mine wrecked it. The flaring, gas tank, subframe all was messed up. Well we finally got the parts in, but there is a dent on the gas tank and I also bought some flush mounted singal light, but they don't fit. Do you guys know anywhere I can get some good flush mounted lights and since most of the parts are reuseable I was going to just keep with them and reuse them. Also, is there anyway to buff out scuff marks on the flarings? Any help or advice to trick out the 08's would be awesome. If you guys want I can put up some pics to show you the wreck.

OH! and he is totally paying for the parts...lol

I was really upset about it but here is what happened. We took the bike out to a huge parking lot to ride it around and chill and freind of mine that has a cbr600rr came there and took it out for a ride to help me understand how to drive a bike....WELL he went on a rode that he didn't know and forgot about a turn and barrel rolled the bike into a tree. well that was about it, but he works on bikes for a living and he is paying to get everything replaced and what the sad part is is that I didn't even have insurance it was so new. But yeah the first thing he said when he pulled up before he fell off the bike was I will fix it or if it is totaled I will buy you a new one. Which that the guy is a good guy so I know he won't screw me over..


SO......do you guys have any idea on what to do about the back set?

He works for Honda so we got a great deal on the windscreen and everything. What have you guys done with the rear of the new 08's. I want to make everything flush and I have not came across anything good.

Well I was thinking that as well, but I want to get rid of the rear seat. I was thinking about getting some intergenerated tail lights, but the ones I have seen are nasty looking and trying to think of a way to put my tag on as well.

first rule i was told by yamaha when i was ready to ride it off the lot. "Your ""Expierenced"" friend will be the first to wreck it so dont let anyone ride it." and they wouldnt even let me put the bike in the truck until i had insurance on it.


oh well at least the rules do apply here.

sorry to hear about your bike.

Yeah they would not let me leave without insurance, but I had a DUI on my record which was not good and my insurance for full coverage was 17,000 a year, so I am just getting the basic stuff I need and it is like 85.15 a month which is not bad since I just had a DUI. Yeah I didn't think the guy who was experienced rider would wreck it. After 2 days they called me back and said if they got the bike under 10,000 they could do it. So I got the bike for 9,998. haha

Yeah any dealer can let you walk without insurane. Finance companies dont need proof of insurance if under $10k. I got mine for $9,600 OTD back in April.

Anyway check this site out they always have parts for new bikes, when they turn them to track bikes.
