Hi all, came out of the store and found my gen 4laying on the ground. A few scratched bits, broken peg, bent shifter, scratched engine cover, mirror and bar end. Where my mirror mounts to the bike is broken so my mirror is a little loose. I can't figure out on the parts finder site which piece it is without tearing the bike apart and I really don't want to do that until I have the cowling piece. I would think it can only be one of the cowling pieces. No I don't want to deal with any of the shops around here. Thanks guys and gals.

Thanks Peter. I don't know, looks like a piece is broke to me. But I'll definitely look into that. So just pull the bolts out to check that it's just the nuts that pulled out? Are captive nuts also called "well nuts"?

Now I understand what you guys are saying. Broke the cowling. I found that piece in the parts look up but it was the only piece that said call for pricing. That scares me. I'm betting that piece isn't cheap.

No. It's only around 60 degrees here. I don't have a clue. Someone bumped it, pushed it over...I have a bad habit of leaving my bikes in neutral. Maybe someone walked too close and hooked their clothes on the clip on. Maybe some disgruntled cager followed me. All speculation. Never know so don't really care. I ended up having to put a security system with a proximity sensor on my Harley bagger because multiple times I had found that someone had been on my bike, touched my bike or, in one instance, let their kid climb on my bike. Nice little greasy toddler hand prints on my tank like they were laying on the tank, one hand on each side.
