09 ST3 Re-assembly

Back in August, I had the pleasure of misjudging a corner on my recently purchased 09 ST3. I rode off the high side and dropped straight up into a wash on the side of the road, and did myself a nice little superman over the handlebars. The result was mostly rashed plastics/engine cases and a dented tank, with the only real mechanical issue being a bent lower tube on the left side of the radiator.

All that being said, I have to make a bit of a shameful admission, exacerbated by the fact that I am a professional mechanic (for the US Army). I ordered most of my parts and began disassembly almost immediately, and failed to note or take pictures of the placement of particular fasteners. Obviously it is now more than 3 months later, and I am finally getting things put back together after the purchase of a new belly pan, flyscreen, radiator cowls, etc. Altogether, my little boo-boo has cost me about $1700, and I have yet to get my tank repaired, but it will wait for the winter.

My real question is this...can you all help me out and provide a few pictures for me so that I can get my poor baby reassmebled properly?

These are the areas that I am unsure of:
1. The bracket that bolts to the radiator that the indicators mount to.

2. The radiator cowls

3. The skirts at the rear of the tank.

Thank you all in advance for your help!!

If you plan on doing a lot of maintenance in the future it might be worth purchasing a shop manual for the bike as well. I am sure folks here can provide some pictures, but if you are feeling impatient, you could always go somewhere like Bike Bandit and look at the exploded drawing views, that will give you the fasteners and things and the order everything goes in. Good luck getting it back together so you can back out soon.

I've spent plenty of time on the sites that have parts fiche, but the problem with those is that the drawings are all black and white, plus as on many bikes, there are different fasteners that are are the same size that may have different heads, etc. That is why I was asking for actual pictures.
