Two weeks after I got my '02 I got hit by a car smack in the radiator. Busted the left front shroud off, and smooshed the radiator enought to think about replacing it. But after bending it back into a reasonable shape, it still functions well without any leaks. That's more than I can say for my shoulder. It all depends on how it gets damaged. I got lucky, two inches to the left, and the whole bike would be a mess! The bike actually got spinned 360 degrees, with a half twist. I hit the door post on the car with my left shoulder and did a complete flip, and landed about twenty feet behind the car, and my helmet never touched the ground or anything. Thank God.
So, there's more info than you asked for...sorry.
Oh yeah, the helmet was on my head at the time! LOL!
