Welp, Got It Out of the Way First Day! First Hour, Even!

Well that didn't take too long! Bought the bike, rode it about 10 miles, pulled into my parking spot, tried to back it in, and put too much steering in. Boom! Dinged up the left saddlebag but otherwise alright. Welp, time to look for a left saddlebag! lol

It appears you can buy the parts you need right here and I'd assume at the dealer too without buying the entire bag. Hope this helps. Falling over isn't an if it's a when. At least you got it over with the less painful way!

I see Kawasaki has the individual parts available also and looks to be about 366 dollars for the outer cover alone.

After further review, structurally it's fine. May just grab some touch-up paint and be done with it. $30 (incl shipping) on Amazon for the ebony paint.
