I have a friend who just totaled his 2006 Royal Star, he's completely fine.

My question for you is, doesn't that bike have a punched out Vmax motor in it? I think that it does. Should he purchase the bike back from the insurance company? I mean, that motor has to be worth something, right?

Not sure if I posted this in the right forum, feel free to let me know if I didn't. Thanks in advance folks.

Motor is worth something.... but they run easily for 200,000 miles, so not much demand. It's a DETUNED V-Max engine... for less peak power, better mis range torque and longer service intervals (soft valve springs, less wear, 24,000 mile interval, BUT low RPM limiter) I have one. You can peruse fleabay to see approximate value of used engine. http://www.ebay.com/itm/05-Yamaha-Ve...37e8a1&vxp=mtr

The Vmax guys are always looking for those things.
