This is kinda weird, but I was surfing this site yesterday and read the post about the girl laying down her SV. Well today, I was out riding and lost it going over a stick getting a big front wheel wobble and running off the road hitting a big patch of grass and laid it down at about 10-15 mph. I am fine thank god, wearing full gear is a good thing. It is a SV650S, that is the weird part, 2004 though. I totally cracked the front cowling and broke off the shift peg and had to ride back in first. There are no scratches on the engine or rearend. The wheel is also not lined up with the handle bars. I don't see anything really bent on the forks, but don't really understand the mechanics of motorcycle tire alignment being a noobie. Besides some other minor scratches that aren't really necessary to replace. I have full coverage on the bike with a $150 deductible. Should I involve the insurance and have my rates go up or see what the estimate is and go straight pay route. I also have coverage on my accessories seeing as my helmet is no good since i took a nasty blow landing on the pavement. I just thank god I am not a showboat and was just cruising, so wasn't hurt at all.

Some other good sites for parts are and

The best bet is to find the part numbers for all the parts you need. (For my bike, I just went to Hopefully, the manufacturer of your bike has a online listing as well.) Then shop around on eBay or the various sites listed in this thread.
