Sorry to hear about your get-off Dave. Sounds like the bike is beat up more
than you are. Glad you weren't hurt to bad. Someone here recently said they
were going to run their bike hard around some on-off ramp cloverleafs. Bad
idea. These are the WORST places to explore your bike's handling mostly
because of all the crap the cages drop on them. They are slippery, and as
Dave found out, occasionally decreasing radius. Anyway Dave, here is a guy
on ebay with a lot of GPZ stuff, including a lot of the things you are

Subject: low sided my 96, gonna need some parts
this past monday i low sided my no longer cherry 96 Gpz around an off ramp.
It was pitch black around a decreasing radius turn, cut it wide and got into
the loose stuff. Just my own damn dumb fault. Luckily where we went off the
road was just gravel and wet (slippery) grass. And i had to walk a mile to
my friends house for a right to teh hospital to check my hand out. I'm ok
just suffered a bad sprain on my right wrist and minor road rash on my left
need and some various bruised associated with such a tumble. My helmet is a
loss (thank god or i wouldnt have a face and my AGV jacket did its job and
looks like it could do it again. Good thing for gear.
And i still made my flight on Tuesday to Knoxville for a business meeting,
damn sore but i was there...
Now for the bike. the left lower and mid farings are gone. headlight
assembly is pretty messed up and i might just remove the right lower and run
it like that. the first thing i need to replace are both handle bars. I
still have the OEM set up. Also need left foot peg assembly and shift lever.
Where is the best place to pick up a set?
Once they are replaced I'll be able to do a better damage assesment because
i'll be able to move it around easier. Oh yeah I'll need to find some of
that engine paint. The case isnt cracked but scraped up pretty good.
Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated.
