    K1600GT parts
    « on: 2013-07-17 18:06:01 »

    Hi all, P&O Ferries dropped my light grey metallic K1600GT on a trip home from Scotland.  To cut a long story short I now have various bits including two exhausts, right hand brake lever, left hand mirror, windscreen bracket etc.

    I plan to put them on ebay but if anyone in the G.B. needs a few bits then let me know.

    If anyone is interested I can add some more info in about the P&O incident.  I certainly learnt something from it.  David

      Hi David, sorry to hear about the incident you encountered. Did P&O not ask you to fix your bike yourself ? I have been several times to Scotland and back (Ijmuiden - Newcastle DFDS Seaways) and had to fix the bike myself every time...
      Enjoy life... Do not try to live forever. You will not succeed.

        Welcome on this forum as well.
        For the moment (luckily) no need for replacement parts.

          How did P & O manage not to secure it. Must have taken some skill to damage both end cans

            12 bikes went on board, a P&O crew member tied them down with a single strap across the seat. The crossing was a little rough when we went back to the hold 3 bikes had fallen over, others had burn damage to their seats with the strap moving.

            If you look at the conditions of travel P&O state the driver is responsible for securing their motorcycle. Thankfully, P&O had tied ours down so they paid for the damages, however, there is a limit on damages of around £3500, this is set by a thing called the Athens convention.

            My dealer managed to find parts that he thought should be replaced which ended up with an estimate of around £3,400.

            The bike fell on its right hand side but I ended up with a new left side exhaust, new left mirror, right hand brake lever etc.  So I have parts that are undamaged.

            When they stripped down the bike they discovered I needed a new windscreen bracket which cost £350. This put the cost over the £3500 and P&O would not pay for the bracket so I paid for it in exchange for the parts.
