Well it had to happen didn’t it? After 11 years of riding the GSX1400 accident free I crashed the Yamaha MT-01 after just a few months of ownership!
Silly accident as well coming up to a roundabout I lost the front end, front wheel slipped away under me and the next thing I knew I was on my backside!
The bike actually faired up pretty well but a dent to the petrol tank was gutting, so my first job after my ankle was feeling better (had a slight break) was to get the tank off and sent off for repair.
Below are the pics of all the damage
- Petrol Tank
- Left Air Intake
- Gear leaver
- Clutch Reservoir
- Scratches on engine covers

So first up was to get the petrol tank off quite a straight forward job, you will need to empty the tank first I used these
