Brand new fz07 just went down 😢

Recommended Posts

Well my brand new 2017 fz07 just went down. 1600 miles on it. I'm really sad but I am posting because I had a set of woodcraft frame sliders on it and the only damage I have are a broken mirror a broken shifter pedal and the only cosmetic damage is a scuff on the plastic where the yamaha logo is. I was going about 65 and a car hit me as he was tryimg to shift into my lane. It gave me a tank slapper and Then lowsided. I was able to climb on top of the bike while it was sliding across the pavement and surfed on top of the bike until it stopped. The bike does start still and I prolly could've road it home if my shifter was bent. This sux. I love my bike and I guess I should be happy I'm walking away with zero scratches on me or the gear I was wearing

That sucks, man, but that's great to hear it well (for the situation). 

 

Had to have been quite the sight to see your save though!

Sorry to hear. Glad you are okay, the bike can be replaced - your body can't be. 

Hope Mr. CarelessCageDriver had insurance?!

Oh man s**t like this makes my blood boil. Do you have insurance? Did anyone else stop? Glad to hear you're ok and as much as it may not seem like it, you're very lucky to be able to tell us about it

I actually had the same thing nearly happen to me today. Missed my front wheel by about a foot.

Glad you're ok. Every time I read one of these I tell myself I'm buying a dashcam...

 

I also have the woodcraft frame sliders -- nice to know they worked out at high speeds.

Hey quick question do you guys know if I should take it to the dealer I bought it from for repairs or does it not matter what yamaha dealer I take it to? Also is an independent shop an option or should I not do that

It makes no difference. Take it somewhere you trust won't screw you over.

 

If you have insurance, you might get a better deal at one of their approved facilities (mine offers lifetime warranty on paint and repairs if I do this)

Man that's a shame.  Every new rider needs to buy a helmet cam as a precaution and for insurance purposes.

When I get my next bike I'll be getting a dash cam so to speak just for instances like this.
