Wow, glad you are okay.

I think your next purchase should be an MSF course. Even if you have taken it before, it may be time for a refresher.

Don't tell me it was that brand new white 2016 zx6r.... that was quick. Insurance should help you out, no? Then go to the dealer. But yes, some training is in order.

If the plastic isnt broken, just scrached i would just ride it that way for now. If your new to bikes you will most likey drop it again. ( we all do ). No sense in replacing plastics twice. Wait untill you
Are more comfortable. If you dont known what caused the drop you will do it again. Welcome to the part of riding that sucks.

If you can give more details about the accident some of the guys on here may be able to tell you what you did wrong, and help you from doing it again.
Also as stated above, wait a while before replacing plastics.
I bought my zx6 with scratched up fairings and still haven't replaced them...worried I'll jinx myself

If you do want new plastics, places like ProCaliber.com have OEM stuff. I think you can order it pre-painted in stock colors. That said, I agree with those that say, if the plastics are only scratched, not busted up, maybe repaint and keep them? If you can cheaply get it looking good on your own dime, it might be worth saving the money and riding it as is. However, it's a new bike and maybe you want it like new again. Will the insurance help with the fix?

I do think the most important part is that you're healthy (hopefully), but an important lesson is: you don't know why you crashed. Identifying what happened is extremely important if you want to learn from what happened and prevent it happening again. I have my guesses as to what could have caused it, but I'll keep them unless you want to share more details and try and nail down what could have occurred.

OP, sorry to hear about this, glad you can post about it.....

FWIW, I don't think that I have owned a bike which hasn't been dropped at least once. Call it 5 for 5, or thereabouts...

If you want to keep riding, it's important to learn something from what has happened.... I can say as of this time I haven't crashed the same way twice, and the number of riding hours between incidents seems to be increasing. (Knocks on wood).

If the bike is rideable, I personally would only repair what is necessary to make it safe, and legal. If you have to have new replacement parts, store them for now.

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "
