We are talking about insurance adjusters not m/c mechanics. Doesn't seem practical for them to invest in the labor and marketing. Maybe a scrap yard, but you know us guys won't spend much on a used or damaged part. I would think they would be happy to sell this for a few hundred dollars.

[email protected] My estimate is high, I think, I can get the parts cheaper from partzilla. My tank is dented from my knee, $1450 for the tank. The dent could be fixed but I don't want a bondoed tank and paint .I would rather have a dent and factory paint. Not trying to start a discussion but factory paint is the only way to go for me, any other paint will scratch easier, no matter who put it on or how well they can spray, I do not want it. Also my frame is bent where the foot board,crash bar bolts to the right side, not that it will be dangerous but it took away from the value of the bike. I hit him hard enough to break the leaf spring,, never seen that happen before. Luckily I was able to not hit him straight on, I slid sideways, my engine,crash bar,hit the rear wheel, my front fender was gouged by his tailpipe. I rode away, he had to be towed.

Sorry to hear that. That one should've been totaled as well... luckily I found out today that the other driver actually has insurance.. no license or valid tags but still...

Speeddemon013 Either resell them as salvage or sell off the good parts or scrap them.. all depends on the bike and what condition it's in after the accident.. in my case they'll resell it as salvage..

kklaus I'm embarassed to say that I've had 3 dumps - all my fault - and yes, I learned from them. All 3 covered by insurance. All 3 times the Honda shop had a big bill (and said it was close to scrapping). When I asked about repairs I found big discrepancies. Shop said it had to replace my broken turn signal. I pointed out it was altered to shut off with a push. Shop said a new frame, $1300, the fork stops were damaged. I pointed out the "damaged" stop was not the side I fell on, not damaged, same as the other side. Shop said new gas tank, $75, old one all scratched up. I pointed out the scratches were from the chain closures on my vest. Being mostly honest, I called the insurance company. They said they were sending a check based on the estimate (that bikes were to leave the repair shop good as new), and I could alter it any way I wanted - but don't come back in a couple months complaining about frame damage, etc. I have made more money on repair bills than I have paid for insurance for my first 5 years, and apparently everyone is happy with that.

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....
