iv crashed my orange zx10r 09 up fish hill broadway last sunday and im in need of a petrol tank, rear seat unit,( complete) and gear selector . i was goin up fish hill (left hander ) and lost my back tyre on a drain which flung me across into oncoming traffic nameley a man in a van with a trailer ,i went under the car trailer i think which is why my knee cap is fucht . when swelling goes down enough il be having an operation to take out bits of broken chipped bone,so any one with a orange zx10 08 09 breaking in england please pm me or just email me at [email protected] iv alota time on me hands now so i may aswell start fixing her back up ... ps the reason why my insurance isnt doing this its because i was only 3rd party fire & theft ..big lesson learnt there .. cheers joe

Sorry about the wreck bro! The pic looks like that could be from a ZX6, but that's just a guess. It's def. not a 1st gen.

dude.... ur "zx10r" wasn't worth comprehensive insurance??
the NINJA of ninjas??

:ninja4:

well anyways, lesson learnt, no doubt. Most important of all, is you're still kickin'.. for the most part. Glad to hear your bike is even repairable...
We all know ninjas tend to go kamakaze when they know they're going out hahaha.

You say you lost it on a drain...? what kind of drain?? like a man-hole on the road?? & were you riding alone?

yeh the joke is is that i was about to upgrade to fully comp ..gutted . the drain was chipped around it ie loose concrete around it ,but i was already committed at an angle that wouldnt let me get out of it unfortunutly .and yeh i was riding alone ,i lost the bike going up hill on a left hander and skidded across the road into an oncoming van towing a car trailer (it run over my leg) it smarted like fuch but my first thought and question to the people who stopped and helped was "is my bike ok" ...it was a rasounding "no m8 its fuched " ! im trying to find a company that sell complete fairing kit for it but cant find one . any help on that would be sweet .

Those pictures of your bike just make me cringe. Glad you are still in "mostly" one piece, heal up and get that bike back on the road. Good Luck!
