Thanks for the replies guys. The question wasn't so much about the principle of requiring restitution as about the extremely minimal damage that is hardly noticeable but would cost an arm and a leg to make right. That's where my dilemma lies. Anyway, I've contacted my dealer to get a quote and will take it from there. BTW the bike is two years old but still looks (looked) brand new.
Druade, no legal consequences of not reporting here but potential for reduced payout in the event of future claims (how they would know though is another question). Insurance in BC is government managed and extremely expensive, no rider policies for multiple bikes, no premium penalties for younger riders/drivers, etc so the cost to her for a claim could well exceed the cost of damages.
ps don't know why the pictures aren't showing up on the thread but clicking on them should bring them up in another tab.
