Okay... I decided to keep this scoot as I really like it... I was going up the road early this morning when I dropped it on some loose gravel (paved road) in a curve... Well, the scoot and I shared the damage about equally as far as I can tell. We both appear to work fine, but we don't look nearly as pretty as we did yesterday.
The primary area of damage is the left front turn signal area. The signal lens is intact, but the chromed part behind it is mangled and the signal hangs by its wire. Also, the glove box door does not close completely because the left (when seated) side of the inside fairing is bent back and ripped pretty good at the top and pushed back a little bit at the bottom. The entire inside front fairing/cover appears to be one piece and wil need replaced. Minor scratches on the front fairing and the headlamp bezel, but they look re-usable. Front fender is scratched pretty bad, but that can be painted. Logo is undamaged. Multiple scratches on the unfinished black area below the drivers left foot, less on the left passenger peg base, and just a few up on the silver painted area by the name "scarabeo." Also, there are some surface scratches on the windshield below the viewing area (not cracked) and the glass in the left mirror needs replaced (mirror assembly is good).
It appears I must remove the front fender to get the front fairing off and then I will be able to remove the glove box base and side vent parts. I might also need to take off the center tunnel, but I am not sure. I took off all screws I could access from inside of the glove box area, but that did not allow any parts to be removed. Does this require removing the front wheel, then the fender?
Does anyone stock these plastic panels? Do they come painted or unpainted? I do not know what all of these parts are called, but if I can get them off, they will have part numbers on them. How long does it take to get them if they are not stocked? How expensive are they?
I am glad that I have only minor cuts and some road rash. Left arm/shoulder is giving me a bit of pain too. I was wearing a jacket, jeans, and a 3/4 helmet with a face shield. The face shield popped off and is scratched bad, but I did not lose the helmet or my glasses. Steering, braking, and mechanicals on the scoot seem unaffected, but I was only riding 45 mph on the way home from the drop.
Please advise. Thank you.
