I'm hoping to get the repairs done this weekend (keeping fingers crossed) and that there is no subtle damage that is not so visible. I'm having the local dealer give a thorough inspection. They should remember it - it was just in for its 600 mile break in service last week!
Good! Let's hope this bike has paid it's dues and goes on to live a healthy, uninjured life!

RS valve cover 233.68
any screws look like they are 15.00 each.
Add 80.59 if the gasket is bad.
I can't find the plastic cover price

you guys are starting to talk me into crash bars.
