    Exclamation Banged up Nose

    Hey guys,
    New to this forum but I had a quick question. Recently got a 97 GP1200 and while it runs great and I'm having a great time with it, the nose of it is severely beaten up and missing the front trim. (See picture). What should I be doing about this? Any suggestions?

    Have it painted, install a new rub rail, what do YOU want to do with it??

    It's not actually broken, is it?

    If not... repaint it and new rub rail like voodoo said.

    I wished my problems were so simple.

    If you find that your new rub rail cannot be installed because the mounting holes are occupied by the pop rivets that are holding the the nose bra on, then just drill more holes in slightly different places then the holes you now have and re-pop rivet.
