gotcha...probably a fair asking price, but that's a lot of swapping when someone could go out and buy the same bike, together (even without the blemishes) for roughly a grand more. Not saying you're not asking a fair price, but you're gonna have to find someone with time on their hands to bite on that bait. If you come down another 500, send me a PM. That would possibly make it worth my time/effort to even check it out more closely. Good luck.

The hole just means it has to be salvaged. It won't be the cause of another accident. Get it welded up somewhere, don't even bother fixing the plastics, and just fu**n ride.

Sell it for parts AFTER you've learned on it.

Maybe I'll just part it out. Any more opinions on what I should do?

If you go through the trouble of parting out you might as well buy one of those cheap frames and swap the parts over

It might be a bit high, idk though. I need to think on this some more.

Think how many you will deal with when parting out and how many trips to the UPS you will make. Not to mention all the time spent cleaning up. What is your time worth?

^Good advice, here. I highly doubt that you're going to find enough local buyers to part out the whole bike. You're going to end up using Ebay and shipping parts everywhere. On a bike that old it will take months to get everything sold.

PARTING IT OUT IS NOT your best bet. I haev had a ton of this things..... you will get $100 for the complete subframe with fairings and seats the motor probably $300 Front end you will just about have to give it away. you might get $50 for the fron rim. YOu will get a lot of people looking for odd ball parts here are there for like 10-$20. It will take for ever to get it out of you garage. maybe 400 for the frame.

Sell it as is. Like I said in the text, I think have the the brake pedel and lever to make it drivable. I'l let you know by wed.

1500????? That's way to high dude, this is basically good for a track bike possibly after doing a bunch of work, its a 2000 gsxr 600, 14 year old bike. 1000 for the frame? and then 1500 for the parts? 2500 right? where are you including the time and labor to get this bike together? engine has to be dropped out everything has to be swapped over to the new frame. IMO people would have to be insane to spend over 1000 on this bike

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=255111

ASKING price is only a few hundred more. less mileage, 7 years newer, TON of extras, much much better bike and no work. compared to you bike.

If youre serious about selling this bike i got cash in hand, but you need to be realistic about this bike. You lost a ton of money on this bike the moment you cracked the frame, this is a totaled bike no doubt about it.

Meh decided to keep it and track it. I'll try and do everything on my own. I'll learn how to change out all those different parts and if I mess it up, well I'll be fine with that.

If I ever decide to sell or part it out, you'll see this on the classifieds section. Anyways you won't be seeing me on the track anytime soon though. I need to fix it up some for that, but I'm saving my money up for a 250cc street bike. I don't really need a SS to ride around in.

Do as you will.
Yea that's what I noticed as I was running all the situations in my head. Going to buy a frame in good mechanical working order. Lets see if I don't kill it when I try and transfer all of the stuff to the other frame.

You should probably save yourself a little time and money and just get that hole welded. What you need is seat time, and you'll get more of it if you keep your costs and time investment into repairs down. Once you're comfortable riding and have gone a little while without crashing, start making more lasting repairs.
