Dropped Cat!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go down

shock Dropped Cat!!!!!!!!!!!!

Post  seancat on Sat Oct 01 2011, 18:43

Ok, Just done a stupid thing and dropped my cat. (No, not on purpose!!!)

Just dropped it down off the rear paddock stand after a wash, and the stand folded back under the bike just as I took the stand away. :(

Luckily I have crash bungs and it fell onto the grass in my back garden.
Appart from grass and mud, and a bent gear leaver which I pulled back, what else do I need to be aware of?

The bike was not running, and It was on its side for about 5 seconds, I lost my temper and pulled the bike back up with the bars (Out of sheer frustration with myself more than anything) turned the key to on and waited for the pump to stop as normal, and it fired first time without any problems.

I know bikes hate being on the ground, what (if anything) should I now be aware of???
It sounds a bit different....I think (Or it might be me knowing what happened) But it rides and feels the same.

Thanks for the advice, I know it sounds like a trivial question!

i dropped mine twice in the garage off the stand doing exactly the same thing ,and apart from having to straighten it from when it hit the ground , nothing else, ran it for a while to check for oil in cylinders etc and rechecked all levels, quick trip round block and double check, but you should be fine

Bad luck , we've all been there - dropped mine Buttertubs Pass the other week pulling out of what wasn't a carpark on a steep slope on a slippy rainy road - luckily the crashbung a mud bank and my right ankle knee and wrist bore the brunt and apart from a scratched crash bung and what is now very bendy indicator bike is fine. Like Pete says should be fine

Sorry to hear that Sean.

It you're going to drop your cat best doing it at 0mph and onto grass.

I've managed it at various speeds but it's always been on something a bit more abrasive and harder.

Long live the crash bung!

She'll be fine. Just don't do it again.

Cheers
