PostSubject: tip over oops   Tue Nov 07, 2017 8:13 pm

I don't post very often but I do a lot of reading on the ghetto. My question is ...my 13 yr old son tipped over my bike, landed on the right side. It fired up right away and sounded ok. Anything I should be concerned about after a tip over and what should I be looking out for?

Thanks,
zathruss

A large stick to beat said careless offspring is required!

Other than that look out for leaks.and odd noises but really they are as tough as old boots.

The valve covers often leak after a tip over. Foot controls can get bent. Or broken.

Suspect

I dropped mine recently but on a curb, so no damage to the cam covers. Cracked the mirror, scratched the carc box and oil cooler and bent the back brake, wich bent back really easily. Min didn't start straight away, but after 10 minutes it burst into life, all ok

Hi Zathruss
These things happen ......
I went to maneuver mine into my sons shed and one of my feet slipped sideways in the gravel and over I went, needed some help to get out from under it and get it back onto it's wheels, I just started it back up and got on with life , no problems since .....
cheers

A solid fatal beating never hurt any young bloke.

My last bike was a 1050 Tiger Sport and it gently fell over on the drive with me sat on it (don't ask).
Not long after the bike would occasionally fail to start and the immobiliser light would come on. I contacted Triumph who said it needed a new key lock set at £400.
It cleared itself until I went on holiday for two weeks without the bike and then it started playing up again. Luckily I was ready to sell the bike and told the dealer about the fault when I sold it.
That very light accident cost me £100 in replacement parts plus the potential for a further £400. Crazy.

I would check the hydraulics, just in case any air trapped in the circuit
