Hi, I'm from Vancouver, BC and have a red R3. I got into a little accident last month where the guy braked hard in front of me and I rammed into him :( Looking for the following so that I may get my bike up and running soon!

- Headlight assembly
- Fork assembly
- Right rear set
- cowling
- front fender

Let me know if you have any of these you're trying to get off your hands!
Thank you! :)

You aren't the only one to have this happen. Few years back, same deal....managed to get the bike stopped (with an unintentional stoppie) - saved the bike, but sacrificed my body in the process. Damage caused by me (head first):

I have a red fender if you want it. It's got a lot of light scratches, but I can't get them to show up on camera. It's scuffed a bit right next to the Yamaha sticker. $15 + shipping if you want it.

haha that's terrible, ya I did an unintentional stoppie too but thank goodness i didn't go through the back. It was a work van and only dinged the bumper and a few scratches, my bike took most of the damage... I'm lucky I managed to land quite gently. Was sore for the following two days but nothing major :)

Thanks! & definitely planning on heading out to the tracks! already been to portland international and it's so much fun even though this little bike isn't as fast as all the others at the track =P. I should have my bike back together by then... gotta find time to fix it. :)

Hmm. Yeah, that PM/post limit thing is a bit of a challenge. How are the new people (like me) supposed to get anything done around here?

Because we had a spam issue a while back and the 15 post thing cut down on spammers considerably. Better to have a few people whine about having to do an entire 15 posts than a bunch a people complain about the spam.

It really isn't much of a challenge.

Sorry I haven't gotten back to you via email. I am really bad about that. I will check to see what I have that you are looking for. Biggest problem is shipping to Canada is a killer. Especially with anything that is big like headlights.

I did sell my headlights. I will check to see what rearset I have left.

What cowling are you looking for?

Janice, have you checked the prices for the parts you need at places like yocracing.com (Yamaha of Cucamonga) or tmsparts.com (Temecula Motorsports)? I bought a fair amount through both of those dealers when I rebuilt my bike. Saved quite a bit compared to what the local dealer was charging. YOC was cheaper than TMS up until a few weeks ago, then they updated their online pricing. They are still way lower than my local dealer, but TMS is cheaper for a while - at least until they update their website. Parts took about 1.5-2 weeks after order to arrive. Signature is required at delivery, so be prepared or ship them to your work address if you can.

no, I haven't checked those two but i'm in canada so it gets more expensive to ship it out here. I've mainly been looking on the forum and ebay.

I checked out your fb page and I like what you did to your bike, did you get that custom painted or where'd you get those fairings from?
