    My old Vstrom is coming up for auction tomorrow. Still rideable. The sub frame is bent. That the worst of it.

    @Just Dan dan Saw that one - didn't realise it was your's. Thought from the descripton there would have been more obvious damage. Any idea what the insurance people are expecting for it / think it will go for?
    Not in the market just yet but interested.

    No idea of what it will sell for.

    You can still ride the bike. The worst part is a bent bolt on subframe ($1000). The rest you could get away with fixing up. Removing the Givi racks and crashbars , replace the handlebar, rear brake lever. Fuel tank has dent from my knee. The rest is just scratches.

    Those photos show things much more clearly - thanks. Lots of small damage that isn't visible in the photos on the auction site.
    I read the original line too quickly - "The worst part is a bent bolt on subframe" I read this as "a bent bolt" (that is located) on the subframe... but you mean the whole subframe & hence the writeoff - but repairability because it can be replaced. All the rest of the damage adds up though doesn't it.

    I think this would make a good project repair if it was able to be picked up cheaply enough, but I'm not registered with Manheim so I won't see what it goes for & don't want to pay to register just to watch an auction - Interesting all the same - Thanks for sharing.

    I've done that on BM airheads. You have to keep them in good nick though. For $13, the kit can never be used and I'll be happy.

    Or not.

    I was very thankful all the cables on my R80G/S had been duplicated, packed with grease and shrink wrapped on the ends when the clutch cable broke on the Ingegoodbee Track late in the day when I had my girlfriend on the back.

    I'm going to need more than a repair kit if my front brake cable goes.
