Comments or Suggestions

I would like to hear peoples comments or suggestions on a project I want to tackle.
I have this 04 Ducati Monster 620ie sitting in my garage. It belongs to my brother in law, but I want to purchase it from him since he is never doing anything with it. He wrecked it 2 yrs ago and his wife no longer wants him to ride.

Things damaged: Top triple, front rim, gauge pod, dent on the tank.

The bike went in head first into a ditch which is why the rim is trash.

Should I put some money into it?
The interval maintenance which included the timing belts was done on a Friday, wrecked on Sat. New tires were installed along with some Pazzo levers. He took great care of it.

I talked to Italian Superbikes and they are able to get me a gauge pod programmed for the ecu for 600 which would be the most expensive thing I would have to buy.
Should I make this a project or leave it alone? I miss the torque of a v-twin I had on the SV.

sorry, if you miss torque, fixing a 620 doesn't have any torque. Air cooled motor, I would pass and save for something with

I have an inline now but the SV was great for around town. I never rode the Monster so I can't say if it was similar to the SV.

That bike has about 60hp and 40ft/lb torque, not a real monster by any means

A lot is going to depend on how much you have to pay for the bike. If you get a good deal, fix it up, then if you don't like it, sell it and at least break even maybe even make a little profit.

+1. if the bike was being bought for cheap, I'd fix it up and ride the out of it.

the other reason i dont think its a good idea is because ducy parts are typically pretty expensive, so i cant really visualize this being a cheap fixer up'r. at least on a budget fixer build anyway, maybe if he had a budget for the epic monster it would be cool.

I would expect some fork damage. If the rim is bent the forks sure seem like they would be fugged up too.

That's what I'm afraid of actually. I have it at home but don't feel right taking it apart till its mine.
