how much is your time worth? i would figure at least an hour per "part" you remove....just for taking it off...then add all the work/costs of listing them for sale, making transactions, negotiating, talking on the phone, shipping, driving, packing materials, tools needed...motorcycles have alot of parts, btw.

and its not like each and every part would all get sold overnight...you would be taking on a serious project (which you say you have little experience in) plus have a bunch of parts laying around that are also depreciating in value...

either sell it as is, or just fix the fork and sell it as is after that...be done with it, and you will have much more cash/time and less stress.
makes sense. i did not think of it that way. all i was concerned about is i can afford a liter bike when i return so why not get rid of this with minimal loss since i wont be hear to ride it for 2 months

word. hey...why not keep both. you could have one for the street/commuting/pp1....and make the other one either a trackday bike or a stuntbike, whichever you prefer!

as a matter of fact...06 r6 with all those particular mods....its near a trackbike allready. dont repair the fork, replace them both with a fork upgrade. you could sell the good fork and maybe the damaged one...then you can still get to have your "part out adventure" when you sell all those silly things that the bike doesnt need like headlights and mirrors, lol.

i can see it now..."will trade stock headlight for carbon fiber"

funny story, the bike was bbuilt for the track by the previous owner. everything is still tied down with those wire ties they use.

if you dont mind can you give me a link to fork upgrade options? i really dont know much about where to get bike parts and google search is not all that helpful

Time=Money. Just decide which you'd like to have a little more of.
Parting might get you more money, but takes more time. Selling outright is just the opposite.

The reason people don't sel their bikes on this forum is because it's their "baby", and they wouldn't let their "baby" go for that cheap (AKA true depreciated value).
