Stupid on my part and 100% my fault, but got distracted by my dog when climbing off my bike in my paved driveway without the sidestand being fully deployed and my '14 GSW fell over on the left side as I walked away. No big deal, thought I, as: 1. The bike had AltRider crash bars and MachineArtMoto valve cover protectors 2. My '07 GSA with OEM crash bars had fallen over at zero speed with no issues (in the dirt and on pavement) 3. My R1100RS and R1100S with no crash bars had each fallen over once at zero speed (in the rain, on a slope) with nothing but a couple of scratches on the valve cover I was surprised to see that the lower left crash bar had bent upward so only about 1 mm of clearance remained between the bar and the MAM protector, and after a couple of rides enough oil had leaked that the lower left leg of my Roadcrafter suit had oil spots on it. When I went to pull the valve cover, because of the bent crash bar the cover would no longer come free (right side has about 7mm clearance between the two, never measured left clearance before this event). I had to loosen the crash bar at all mount points, and then the cover would come off. Found that the oil leak was due to a crushed area of rubber on the gasket caused by the tip over, which also surprised me since none of my other bikes ever had an issue after a tip over. So, new valve cover gasket required there. I called AltRider - not to bitch at them but because I was surprised that the bar had bent. We had a good conversation, and I was told they felt the crash bar wasn't designed for zero speed pavement drops and that all that weight at one contact point had caused the bar to bend. Because I could no longer pull the valve cover without loosening or removing the bar, they suggested I could take it somewhere and have it bent back into position while keeping all of the mount points lined up. I considered just leaving the bar as is, but then realized that if the bike ever tips over in the same manner again some real damage might result because the bar will bend further into the cover. Hate for that to happen at all, much less on a trip 1,000 miles from home. Not real confidence inspiring that all this happened from a simple tip over (bent crash bar and gasket damage), but there it is. Any suggestions for where I could take this crash bar to have it bent back once I remove it from the bike? A welding or machine shop?
