Speaking from experience...

That'll be anywhere from ~$1000, if you're able to repair the tank and don't need paint work and live with a couple scratches, up to ~$6000 if the tank can't be fixed and you get everything repaired.

It just depends on the extent of the damage on those parts. Could be minor, or it could be really expensive.

I have R&G's on my Panigale. I also had a set installed on the wife's CBR300R which have taken one for the team a few times. It would be interesting to read if they were any help at damage control on a Monster drop which is now on my mind?

I think the problem is a respect issue.

Helpful part of post, bht, you can look up part prices here. https://www.ducatiomaha.com/pages/ducati-oem-parts


Also how to pickup a bike, especially a tall/top heavy one. Granted, IMHO, if it's a Hardley, one should just leave it. Maybe set it on fire to make sure it never is rubber side down again.

This is why if the tipover is on the right, you put the kickstand down before picking it up

I dropped my 1200s the day I got it while trying to move it into the garage luckily it fell on me so I managed to save most of the damage except for a scrape on the seat cowl. I ended up paying $250 to fix that.

Dar, if you're going the frame slider route for your 1200R i'd recommend the Puig R12 ones as they're pretty long and clear the radiator's length - unlike the Rizoma ones for example which are so short that they might as well not be there and are mostly just for show (pretty much like all their products)

Ok price also, got 'em for 115

Well your not alone and as the saying goes misery loves company. I dropped my 2006 Triumph Sprint in 2008 when I got my right foot caught between the rear brake and the peg. I broke my right ankle. My mother used to say cheer up things could be worse. I know you want to make it looked like it did in the dealer showroom. It you can live with some minor nicks and scratches you can save some money on repairs. If insurance is being used you should make it look new. Your out the deductible anyway. The only damaged to my Sprint was a scratch on the right side saddle bag. Frame sliders would be a good investment. Good luck and please keep us updated on your progress.
