I have brought back to life worse, you dont want to hear this but In my expirence, you neet to take the whole bike apart, take the frame to sabbs or wherever, and get them to do an eddie current test on the frame. For some reason the new zuki frames are brittle. I bought one off e-gay, it looked good, two welds at the neck and one on the side were cracked where I couldnt see, they welded it right up(I still ride the bike). Make a parts list to see what you need, see if rebuild costs over-ride new bike. the bike is worth around 1500 more/less as it sits.

Yeah after posting this I started browsing around and read some pretty bad threads.. I'm very thankful to be alive.. Now as far as the bike goes, I've always had liability insurance which is the bad part. I only owe 1800 on the bike now so once I'm good and can get around I'll start taring it down and looking it over.. If its not too bad I'll start replacing items.. If worse comes to worse I'll have a new track bike and I'll have to buy another street bike.. I'll have full coverage on that bike for sure:BangHead: Cant wait to get back on the road!

i wrecked about the same speed awhile back on my bike on 45 and cypresswood. my bike didnt get that bad. all i had to get is a new subframe, and front end and come plastic. yes i was lucky to be alive and im still thankin who ever watched over me that night because i only walked away with a few scuff.

if you cant total it, and if the cost of fixing it up is too much i suggest parting it out.

Thats a bad stretch of frewy to have a wreck ( esp at that time 4-5 pm!)
Not that there is any time or place that is good to have a wreck. I am glad your gonna be ok and yes, part out the bike and start over. Or get some of the guys here who posted they have salvaged worse bikes and have them help you with the rebuild.

perhaps just buy another gsxr 750 that has a bad motor. That seems like the fastest way to get back on 2 wheels.

prolly the frame if he hit the curb.

you might as well throw that bike away. prolly the most you could hope is to sell the motor, cuz looks like everything else is trashed.

Sorry about your wreck and I'm glad that you came out alive. But I have some question. You broke some bones on your leg and toes, do you think with proper pads and riding shoes would of help? You got stitches in your arm, shouldn't the jacket prevented that? To be honest with you, recent accidents in the forums had scared me abit and I'm trying to justified riding with full gear. I hope your experince will do just that. :eh:

I think if I were wearing boots or anything other then running shoes I would have been ok. I remember rolling down the freeway entrance ramp and getting up without my shoes on.. I didnt wear my leather jacket that day and had my Icon merc jacket on. The sleeve on my right arm got all torn up and the pad fell out. I'll try and get some pics of the jacket.. My helmet only got sratched in two spots.. One across the visor and another on the back center.

Your bike will never ride the same again and your looking at like $6,000 or more to repair (before paint). That is what I spent on my 636, and I had less damage than you! Just get a new one or claim it, heal up, and then get a new one!

On another note, how are you so fast at posting Clayton? You get a hard on being number 1 don't you!

I think it's time for a new helmet too. Just scratches going 80mph?

I wouldn't risk it the next time it happens unexpectedly.

just noticed that, there is a ding on the frame. i'd get it x-rayed, and if it was good i'd rebuild. looking into it more there will also be a few other parts needed but i dont think it would cost over $1.5k to have it on the street again. the cosmetics are up to him, i'd zip tie stitch every last crack and go with it.

subframe $200
tank $200
rims $500
seats $150
left side peg $20
swing arm $40
stator cover $70
oil pan repair $30
----------- $1,210
forks if bad.. $300
----------- $1,510
all prices off of ebay. time now.

Just My .02 and just from what i could see in the pic. a personal look might show more damage, but i think it is totally repairable. some quicksteel or jb weld or take it to a welder and have him weld the spot by the oill pan bolt. just pull the pan off

I was in a similar situation last fall when I crashed at the track and let me tell ya I wish I would have went through insurance. At first I thouhgt it might only cost a few thousand, but it just kept adding up. If you do decide to fix it talk to Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited as he fixed mine and did a great job and my bike runs like new!

I'm surprised the insurance company doesn't consider that "totaled"?!?!
