May be a total loss

Postby steve59 » Mon Jun 05, 2017 9:44 pm

I center punched an atv saturday on my 2015 sdr and damaged front wheel, forks, and the frame at the steering head broke, instrument cluster and scratched up the right side. Talking to the claims agent he suggest I consider the bike likely totalled. I know the engine runs and the back tyre and brakes are salvageable and he (agent) said I could buy back the bike for salvage as part of my payout and I wonder what it's worth? there's about 9000 actual miles on it and i'm the only owner. What would you pay for it?

Bikes get totaled if they fall over in a driveway. Sounds like yours will never see the road again.

It would be nice to have an extra engine sitting in the shed when you reach 100,000 miles.

I got 33K on my 08, and would love to have a spare.

I see wrecked bikes going for a lot less than DD's offer, so you better contact DD before that fish gets off the hook. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Broken frame?
absolutely offer your ins. co. $1K (tell them it will save them the cost of storage and scrappage) and get on to Mr Dribble Duke pronto.

anybody know how long these things usually take? The guy that picked up the bike already called showing interest in buying the salvage off me and he seemed surprised the bike hadn't been assessed yet although the accident was just this saturday.

The buyback was $2870. but Illinois don't let owners buy their own wrecks 7 years old or newer. Everything worked out tho' I was able to replace my 2015 with a new 2016 leftover.
