What would be considered a minor crash turned into a major ordeal. Only bought the bike 2 months ago and a distracted driver in heavy traffic ran into me from behind. For my first bike being an X.. I'm already looking for another X. Total damage, parts and labor to fix it would be above $5,000. Be safe out there

you should be able to buy it back from insurance company pretty cheap, then you have a parts bike. Wheels alone are worth $300-$400 depending on tires, a good tank is worth $400 or so. worth checking into. A spare set of wheels is very handy.

Oh the buyback option is available.. but wouldn't cover what I owe the bank.. and then I have the hassle of finding buyers for the parts which in my area is few and far between. I'd also have to let the parts go for pennies on the dollar given the limited market. Most people in my area have Harleys. Good idea though. Thank you. Unfortunately have to dismiss it for financial reasons and lack of storage for it given it isn't in drivable condition.

Is there more to the damage than what shows in the pictures. Doesn't look like over $5K to me.

What is the figure they threw at you? Ballpark.

Oh it is fixable... but I'm not dumping over $2000 to get it back on the road (minimum) when I still owe the bank even after the insurance payment to them

Thank you. Could've been a lot worse... had it not been for my leg getting pinned in the engine guard I would've gone off the back and into the car....
