I crashed! Now it's time to fix it.
Iím about to enter the murky world of insurance adjustors and Iím looking for general advice and things to look out for. I lost the front end on my 2002 KRS on an unexpectedly wet right-hand curve in the north Georgia mountains last weekend, and the bike and I ended up sliding along the road for awhile. I just slid along the road for awhile and eventually stopped before I hit anything (thank God for leathers), but the bike continued off the side and down the embankment, hitting a tree and ending upside down about twenty feet down. I wasnít hurt much, but as you might expect the bike doesnít look too good. In addition to losing all the plastic on the right side, as well as windscreen, mirrors, turn signals, etc., the driveshaft housing/swingarm is broken in half and the rear wheel is dangling at a strange angle.
Thatís all background. The reason for this posting is that Iím getting ready to take it to my dealer and begin the insurance adjustment (and hopefully repair) process. Iíve never had to do this before, and Iíd like to find out about potential pitfalls in dealing with the insurance adjustors and the shop beforehand. Any advice?
