 :) Nice to see you managed to get on here Gidds.
You can try Ace of Sprays he is highly recommended for your damage tank. (He is on Facebook)
I might have my old indicators if you want them.

My bike was crashed/dropped and I put it back on the road by going down the naked route.
It did feel a lot different at first but I've had her so long that I couldn't break the ole girl up for parts.

General / Re: Would you buy a Category "N" Write-off ?
« on: 14 March 2018, 01:45:55 pm »
As my bike has now got a Cat N to its name I am also in the process of putting her back on the road for me to keep.
I wasn't riding the bike at the time someone else was and they reported it on their insurance and got paid out.
I rang my insurance company as its renewal date was coming up and they knew nothing of the crash and were unaware of its Cat N status.  :eek They said I will have to get it MOTd to make sure it is roadworthy and then they will look at renewing my insurance.
Damage to bike was left headlight cracked, nose fairing cracked in several places and deep scrapes, broken front brake lever and ripped the standard exhaust can off the bike. Got to make a bracket to hold the clocks and other little things to tidy her up and she will be ready for her MOT.
I wouldn't like to buy a bike if its been in a crash I don't think anybody would but if it was cheap enough and you got the knowledge and experience to put things right again I don't see anything wrong in buying a Cat N for an everyday commute.

I took my throttle lock off my Honda when I sold it and fitted it (self tapped it) on the Fazer.
Which is the same as eBay # 291735105144
Wouldn't be without it now.

I've got a HJC IS17 and had it about a year with no problems.
I live in Bristol and have never heard of Biker Cove.
But as you brought it from eBay it might be just an eBay name they use to sell their gear.
First port of call is to go back to the seller and ask if they will replace or refund.
