Gotta rebuild after accident (parts help)

What's up Mh. Been awhile. Hello to all I haven't seen in awhile.
Last month a car made an illegal u turn right in front of me. Think I hit the car pretty quick. Glad I had all my gear on. I broke my back in two places. Some stitches in my leg. Some shoulder and hand damage. Luckily it's about a month later and I'm just about healed up. Don't remember anything was knocked out. Just thought id share.

It's an 02 gsxr 750. Pretty much all front end damage and possibly a bent frame. Just got it started a few minutes ago. That's a good sign. Gonna rebuild so anyone know of our can help me get back on the road with parts, locating or selling please let me know. Thanks in advance.
Keith

You just have a need for giving advice dont ya

Youre not in the motorcycle business and by your own words you have never even had a wreck.......

For what bike it is I would be almost certain that it IS repairable unless its torn in half. Parts are cheap and plentiful.

You just gotta be a sucker dont ya? I dont have to be in the "motorcycle business" to know what it costs and takes to build/rebuild a bike. You dont think I have built a bike AND rebuilt a bike after a wreck. Get off my and quit being a . I never said it couldnt be rebuilt. I said
" I wanna doubt its even close to being WORTH it". Its a 02 750. Its not worth much to begin with. Try again later. Next time try harder though

however...if no frame damage, one could likely fix for less than $500. I helped a MH member rebuild the front end of an 03 600 like 6 years ago and it was maybe $500 tops. included upper and lower triples, new complete front end, new rim and headlight fairing & stay.

I was assuming frame damage without pics (as stated above) based on his own statement that the frame was bent. I did say "without pics". Why my opinion would hurt a little so bad is beyond me. Yes, I like to comment. Dont like my comments? Zero given on my end, but dont be a little about it.

This is a subject where I'm pretty much the expert. If the guy likes his bike & doesn't want to drop a ton of cash on a bike you deem worthy, then he can do that.


I was just calling you out to make a point.........I'm an sometimes. You're an ALL the time.

What was it....two days ago you were throwing certs around and going all tourette's on somebody else because you were so much better at blah blah blah......from your desk. Just relax captain keyboard. Disagree all you want, just stfu with all the bashing & one up name calling.

For somebody obviously smart you sound like an ignorant d i c k sometimes.

I'm still missing your "point". You choose this thread to argue your expert opinion? An 02' 750 with likely frame damage and a jacked front end? Lol

Oh heaven forbid its tucked a few degrees!

There are lots of places that can fix frames. One even used to be a sponsor here.

Bike is worth say $3500 Needs under 1k if no frame work & under 2k if frame is bent. I'm no math scholar but saving $1500 and staying on a bike he knows sounds like a win to me........

You're just a bike snob. If he had the budget to ride a new bike he'd probably already be on it. Riding's riding, not everyone needs to pose
