i am a squid..... need help

so i appriciate everyones help, and yes i finnaly got my bike running and it ran like a champion, had it to 180mph and it still wasnt redlined yet!!, so i was riding my bike the other day and for sum dumbass reason i thought i was in control over it really good that day. so i stupidly tried to pull a wheelie.... well i got the wheelie and a little more. It came up so fast my legs got thrown off so there was no chance of me bring it back down with the rear brake. it came out from under me at about 50,. as i finnaly slid to a stop i looked up and saw my bike still up on one and it finnaly came down on the right side. plastic is not so pretty as far as the tail. the thing that got "broke" was the front of the bike. my forks still seem to be good but my WHOLE right throttle grip(handle bar) is broken off and is only still hanging on cuz of all the cables hooked up to that side, i dont have a starter button anymore or engine kill switch, that whole piece is trashed.
how bad is that, and how much would that cost for that piece????, sorry guys!, but more important sorry girl!!!

First up, CBR900RR's aren't capable of 180mph.
You don't need the rear brake to bring down a wheelie, just close the throttle.
Price is going to depend on what you can find in the For Sale forum or Ebay.

Maybe you just aren't very good at wheelies?

Differ to what? Hitting 180 mph? No matter how much you think it does, your bike can't hit that speed. Regardless, your a dumbass for even trying to get close to it, let alone attempting to wheelie, on the street...

Re: i am a squid..... need help



well I guess if his 99 900rr can do 180, my 06 1000rr should be able to easily hit 200


If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you...

Re: i am a squid..... need help

damn didnt try and piss anyone off, it said 180 so i thought i was doing 180, ohh and the bike isnt stock either, u can call me a dumbass cuz i didnt know my cluster was off, so be it, just wanna know how much/hard its going to be to fix the throttle piece, and yes i cant wheelie for sshit thats why i crashed, any places to look would be great ebay, didnt help and searching the net not isnt really helping either.

Re: i am a squid..... need help

I'd keep an eye out on ebay, give it some time. If you want to buy parts immediately, then look to bobbitt's, they probably have all of your parts, but its really gonna cost you to go through them. (sometimes you can find OEM)

My only note on the other subjects, don't do that on the road, that's how you kill yourself and others. I don't care if your bike does 180, 120 or 200, don't do it on the road. The wheelie, if you want to learn to do that, do it in a deserted parking lot (or dirt lot with a dirtbike), not out where others can get hurt.

If you're going to try stunting before you're ready this website will become your best friend: Ronayers.com Fiche Desktop

P.S.
I doubt very seriously that's the only damage. So you might as well get a shopping list together before you start ordering. Save on shipping
