Replaced the clutch lever and a small panel on the side. Both cheap (god bless Suzuki for their cheap parts) Now just a coupla scratches on the fairing that mostly I, will notice. Slight downhill combined with my short lil legs and over she goes. So many motorcycles are so tall, you would think they are made for little Japanese men of my height.

I never left a bike in Neutral again
Good point to remember.
My son's '94 VFR has a center stand as well. With a single sided swing arm and the center stand, pulling the rear wheel is stupid simple. Last year he developed a valve stem leak and the tire went flat. Pulled the wheel, strapped it to the Harley and a quick ride to the nearest bike shop. Within an hour we were back on the road. He was waxing his bike while I was getting his valve stem fixed. His bike looked great as we got back to our ride ... Lol

Every bike should have single sided swingarms and center stands.
