Have to agree, most Japanese bikes are not worth repairing if they have suffered internal engine damage. A used engine is about the only way to go (within financial reason) and you never know what kind of condition they are in.
I won't spend more on a bike than I think it's worth, but if it's a good deal, I don't seem to have a problem buying bikes I don't need.
