I have the signed manufacturer's COO, as well as a bill of sale, so I should (because you can never predict the dmv). The dealer did not fix it as it was too costly to replace all the shaved down parts. I already stripped everything down and verified the frame and suspension are straight. I even met the rider, he was not in good shape when he went down but is back to himself now.
I already ordered the switch and an aftermarket handlebar (thank you to this forum for identifying what would fit), I needed the left switch anyway for my plan b but was lucky to find one on ebay. Removing that handlebar clamp was fun, the two bolts were bent enough to make them impossible to rotate so I drilled out the heads and then removed the clamp and spacers, then rotated them out. The clamp and spacers are fine, just need a new set of bolts, a coolant hose and a shift lever to make it rideable, and the upper fairing stay to mount the headlight and make it "legal", the headlight, fairing and windscreen are all fine, so is everything that was on the right side of the bike.
