My guess

You'll be paying their deducible (£500?) and probably depends if you had helmet & leather cover on your own insurance (fully comp) as an extra, if so you may get this back, but not too sure.

Clothing claim

The dealers insurance will not cover your kit so, unless you have your own cover for that, you will have to cover the cost yourself.  I would also suggest that you have a look at the terms of the loan agreement for the bike - you may find that the excess is even higher than shuggie has suggested.  The last two loan bikes I used had a £1000 excesss.
