While out riding last weekend and getting turned around in a parking lot, I decided to just cut through the openings in some parking curbs and ride over the sidewalk back to the road.
I've done it many times on other bikes but never on the Vision. Needless to say the VR wacked the curb pretty good. I got home and took a look and seen it was pushed back a little bit and is missing about a 1/16th of fin's off the front edge.

Has anybody else done this and have any long term effects from it?

I'm going to pull it off and take a look for any cracks in the case but it makes me a little nervous the next time I have to ride int the rain if I fractured something.

Well... many of us haven't intentionally destroy our R/R's but many of us have had them fail. Mine started failing on long ride through the Sierra Nevada mountains. When I got home I found an alternative to the OE M unit. The solution won't help ya with yer original problem (the R/R sittin' so low). But, it may help ya avoid the heating problem some of us experienced which helped fry our original units. See...

Mine has a decent chunk off the front, it appeared one day, I really don't know what I hit or what caused it.
That was 30k miles ago, still working fine at 93K
