Default Re: Dropped my bike.....

The most common damage from falling over is bending or kinking a cable or handlebar lever. Clutch, brake or throttle cables seem to always take the brunt of contact with a floor or the ground. Check your controls, especially the brakes if handlebar mounted. Make sure everything works before riding the bike. If the engine hit the floor you'd see obvious signs of where it hit. I doubt that it suffered any. If there is any sign that the tank hit the floor keep an eye on it and make sure it isn't leaking around the studs.
