Hello everyone, I've been creeping this board for a while but finally decided to make a post, because I need some advice. I ride a 2006 zx6r 636. I've placed it in storage for the winter, but while I was in the parking garage of my building doing a few loops to keep the battery going, the rear wheel went flying out from underneath me. I fell on my ass and the bike went sliding on its left a few feet. It's a slick surface and pretty dusty, so I'm not too surprised I guess since I was revving it a bit.
Anyway, I didn't get hurt, that's the first time i've dropped my bike so I guess I was lucky. I picked it up and it runs fine, aside from some scratches on the clutch/handlebar and the side of the bike. I did notice however that the gas tank looks a bit 'loose'. I haven't seen the bike in a while so I can't remember if its supposed to look this way, but it looks like maybe the gas tank bounced off of something and got unseated? It just looks like it doesn't line up properly with the rest of the bike.
I'm not sure, if you guys could have a look at the photos and let me know what you think.
Sounds like the bike fell on teh left side, which means right side is fine. However your photo's indicate that the right side of the tank moved? It should not move away from the frame but rather closer methinks. Maybe take the tank off the bike and re-seat and see what you can see...
