my 08 all repaired and upgraded

After a few get-offs that resulted in smashed plastics, a blown rear shock, and a pair of bent handlebars (mendocino is NOT an easy ride), i've rebuilt him better than before. Now I just need to regain my off-road confidence.

Aside from the front fender, that looks brand new.

Well done. Got any before pictures, and I can only imagine the price.

Also, what is on your exhaust header? A heat shield?

Yeah, it totaled up to a pretty penny, that's for sure. Around the exhaust I've just got some heat wrap. I like the look better than the heat shield that comes on it, and it actually displaces the heat better too.

I've got no before pictures unfortunately. After the damage occurred, I got home and just started wrenching immediately.
