Laid Down Sally
Last Friday I laid my 2004 RG down, only bruised but the faring took a hit, saddlebag, slip-ons, etc. My insurance will fix it and the local Stealership will be doing the work.
My question: There is a dent in the Gas Tank where the cigarette lighter hit it when the handlebars twisted on the left side (the side I laid down)...They want $1450.00 to do a complete removal and replacement! It looks cosmetic to me, they insist that The Motor Company requires a complete swap out. I could do with some DayMakers and Ape Hangers instead and I'm thinking of doing that with the 14K.
Is there a real danger or reason why the Gas Tank needs replacing?
This is my first Post, I was on a nother Brand's forum for years and those guys were really helpful and saved me a ton of cash with their advice and words of wisdom. I know you guys are just as cool, let me know.
