Here's what it costs to drop a 2017 Rebel 500

Throttle assembly, right mirror and cables and controls got to be replaced. The muffler is scratched so I'm not doing that plus I finally got it sounding right with the drill. The tank is dented so I'll probably try a tank cover from zeed if it's not a risk and just a dent before I commit to a $500 factory tank. Doing a walk around next week. But surprised on how cheap lens covers etc are.

Was it just a drop from a parking lot or driveway, or something more? Iím impressed you dented the tank, seeing how it doesnít really bow outwards, and is really just as narrow as the trellis. Either way, sorry my man.

No I was cut off. Dude turned into the center lane. I was Going 20-25 with 1.5 car length gap as i was approaching and going to pass in 2nd gear. Then he changed his mind as I was 20ft away and not only took my lane but my escape path by crossing right in front of me and going over another lane. I didn't hit him but went down. Not sure if it was the bars or my knee that dented the tank but I'd rather cover it if dealer says it's safe. $400++ is a big chunk. Dude took off. Multiple witnesses helped me lift it. Started, runs but not drivable. $75 to tow. $25 to Uber home. I more surprised on how cheap the lens cover and mirror is.

Muffler is fine. I love the sound since I modded it. So I'll either touch it up or put on a straight pipe. Maybe this wouldn't have happened if I was LOUDer.

If the muffler is fine then why did they charge you for a new one? $320.99 !!!!!

I haven't gone in yet but initially they thought I was going through insurance, so it's about putting it back to perfect original condition at that point. Plus I didn't tell them I drilled it out so maybe they are freaking on the sound. I'm going in next week to go over the necessities. Hopefully no tank. I'm freaking out haven't ridden since Wednesday. How do you guys with winter survive?!?

Well glad you're ok. My rule of thumb when riding is act like everybody and their mother is gonna run you over.
I dropped my bike a little over 24mph but that was my fault for taking a turn without looking at the road surface that was covered in sand. My tank is dented as well though not as severe as yours so I'm leaving it as a character mark
