Dropped my bike... with pic

I dropped my bike today in parking lot, tires were cold and I was leaning too hard at an angle while turning, it was about 5 miles per hour.

Only one side suffers damage, as seen in the picture. I wanna ask what can be done to fix this?



The exhaust also has some scuffed marks, can I plasti-dip it (i have the stock black exhaust)

You could try rebuilding the section with ABS cement. Put some clay on the outside to cover the hole, sand down the inside a bit, and then layer on ABS cement until it's about as thick at the fairing. You can sand/repaint the outside after if you want.

Rotten luck. Seems the signal stems get another fairing.

It'd be a shame to plastidip the SE fairings...I'd say grab some ABS cement / Fiberglass and try fixing it.

Edit: Just read you want to dip the exhaust...reading fail lol.
I'd get some high-temperature exhaust paint for the can. I've seen some exhausts burn the plastidip off.

I think he meant plastidip his exhaust since it got scratched.

I'm planning on using some barbecue high temp black paint on my exhaust. I dont think that plastidip will hold up to the heat from the exhaust can

+1 on not using plastidip on the exhaust. It won't hold up to the high temps.

We're you leaning against the angle? Curious. I've never had a problem at that sort of speed with cold tires.

But alas, I think these threads would be worth looking at:
