Unhappy What I need and how to do it. . .

Preface: Wrecked my 2005 GSXR 600 when a bit@h ran a stoplight and ran off. Here is the original wreck thread. You can refrence pix there aswell. *grunt*


Ok well I think I have a pretty realistic idea of what exactly I need to have to get my bike back on the road. It really is a pitty that I have taken so long to get this all sorted out, but school and lack of funds in a SOB.

Parts I need (approx ebay prices):

Upper Fairing Stay ($140)

Stator Cover ($90)

Rear Subframe ($260) - Its barely bent at the place where it bolts on. This translates to an inch or two at the back, can they be bent back? Whats the +/- to doing that?

Shift Lever ($23)

Extra things ($30)

I WANT TO BE BACK ON MY BIKE!

So I am going to go get a J.O.B. tomorrow just to make the money to fix this baby right. I am gonna need some help though and I really want to know about any possibility of bending the subframe back. That would be a big load off the price here if that was repairable. Please someone let me know about that. As far as my plastics go I really dont care about looking good for the time being, can always pick some up when they get a little more affordable.

Your GSXR has an extrusion cast subframe, next to impossible to bend back.
I can get you a new one for $220.00.

I would get all new parts. You really ain't talking too much money. I would get aftermarket woodcraft covers for the stator though...everything else stock. Pat is right about the subframe. It is stamped and you risk breaking off the mounting tabs trying to bend it back. And who is to say that the frame itself isn't tweeked? I have seen the spars of the frame shift and make the subframe look off. There is a place called GMD Computrack in Dallas(682.518.1660) and they can tell what is bent.

Im sorry I have been so busy and I didnt see the activity on this thread.

That really scared me what bdmpastx said. I really hope the damage is not to the frame of the bike itself. I just really cant afford to take the bike in to the show and have it looked at by a pro like Patrick.

Im def gonna buy my subframe from Patrick tho.
