Cat reversed into!! Empty Cat reversed into!!

I had the pleasure of lifting my cat today after someone reversed into it. On the upside the person who did it search my workplace for me to let me know it happened.

One mirror, indicator lens and clutch lever damaged, luckily for her the paintwork was already severely damaged on the side it landed on.

Anyone got any idea of a good place to get an indicator lens?

I got a set of flushmounts off ebay. I paid all of $24 total shipped and they work amazing.

Sorry to hear about you cat, I had a friends dog run into mine and knock it off the stand.

Ouch not nice.
I've got one for the left hand side.. The whole assembly actually, but the base (part that connects to the fairing) is a bit broken.

Sorry to hear that mate. Ebay perhaps.

Check the clip-on too, those can be expensive.

Just go from full lock to full lock on the bars to see if the gap between the clip-on and the tank is the same on both sides.
(both gaps should be large enough not to trap a hand)

Thanks guys,

Ammo, that must have been a huge dog to do that.

Rosco and steve, thanks for the offer, but the lady in question is paying for it and I have managed to source it already. So far it is costing her £50, She got off quite lightly as the left fairings were already destroyed due to the previous owners inability to keep it upright.

I am off now to check my clip ons now Wooster, thanks for the advice.
