BEST Place To Fix My Suzuki

Insurance completely screwed me so gotta pay for everything myself

In your opinion where is the BEST place for me to take my bike to get fixed?

Needs New Swing Arm, New Rear Brake Caliper, New Windscreen, Those Are The Main Parts Needed, From What I Can See Nothing Else Is Needed To Get It Back On The Road. Shes Not As Pretty As Before But I Just Need Her On The Street Again

fix it yourself. damage is light. You'll need a new swing arm and rear caliper bracket. Not sure what else without having to look it.

Pretty easy if you have the right tools. You need a special socket to take the swing arm pivot nut off. Might want to check the wheel too. Where are you located. If you don't mind spending a couple of hundred on labor, there are some shops that will do it for you.

that sounds like a whole lot of BS and maybe I am not understanding what took place but if it is how I think I would not settle for that.

You need to go up there with BTR and smash some faces in am i right BTR or what?
