Dammit!!!

Post  Guest on Wed Dec 08 2010, 09:41

Took a little slip last night as I was parking the TeaCat. As I was dismounted and backing her into her night spot my foot slipped on a loose paving brick I lost my footing and down she went in the opposite direction (rhs). Clung for dear life and sure I manged to soften the blow as she slunk to the gravel. A quick inspection in the semi-dark revealed no significant damage but in the bright morning sunlight I see I've grazed (slightly) my hitherto pristine fairing and done the alternator cover a scrape as well. Not the end of the world but feel like a right fool today.

Anyone got any magic wand/solution to get rid of light scratches in bodywork? Or is it onto ebay for a sticker set? I can live with a scuffed alternator cover.

How are you guys anyhow?

PS. Must apologise for my comments about SA's summer weather. It's been a cracker so far.

Sorry about your bike.
i did the same thing myself,but luckily my mate was stood at the side of his car and he managed to save me. You could try T-Cut or similar if its not too deep.I know a chap thats real good at touch up's but I live in the Midlands.If its too bad I would go for the sticker options because half the fairings on Ebay are worse than your own.
Take Care

Thanks pal

Good advice. Scratches are a bit too deep to T-cut out but not so bad that I'm going to devote anymore time to worry to it. These things are bit like Jay Leno said. it's a bit like catching your best friend kissing your wife. At first you are mad and bent on revenge, then a few days days pass and the anger subsides, then you get used to it and then after a while you may even begin to enjoy the idea. Sic gloria transit mundi, and all that crap.

Yoshi it is

Post  zedhead on Mon Mar 14 2011, 08:43

It is a Yoshi. Came with the bike. My mate says it can add 5-6bhp over standard, but I'm not too sure about that never having sampled a 'standard' can.

Out and about on the Cat every day now, come rain or shine. Have to, the V8's buggered. She's turning out to be a decent enough commuter.
