Nose dive: Broken headlight, bracket, front mask and a mirror. Key damaged the display panel. About 200-300$ damage.

My conclusion is that this bike will take quite a few knocks and ride away from it.
Radiator is a bit vulnerable, though.

Do you think the fork leak could be related to the crash? As far as I've seen you're the first to report this. Do you think a new seal will fix it?
I been to the motorcross track a time or two with it nothing major no jumps just busting the Berms a bit I think it has something to do with the wipers and having almost 4000 miles...i really dont know just gonna replace the left seal and put some 30 wt fork oil from belray to slow down the compression a bit.
