08 ZX6r frame damage? Insight please! - June 28, 2011, 10:19 AM

Hey all, I need real world experience here. I'm looking at a ZX6r for a track whore, and think I found one. It is an '08 with a salvage title; supposedly from all the plastics and fuel tank needed. The seller says there is a dent in the frame where the clip- on contacted during the wreck. That would certainly explain the salvage title.
My question is this: What is the likelihood of this, and should I be concerned that the frame is not true?
Again, looking for advice from those that have experience with this bike and/ or this kind of damage.
Thanks fellow .NETTERS!

I suppose a dent is possible from a high velocity impact from a clip-on, however I would check the steering stops. If those are intact, there's no way for the clip-on to hit the frame and you're not getting the whole story. Also, your clip-ons should snap if there's that high of an impact, they are aluminum after all, even if it is aircraft aluminum.

He said that the clip on did break off. He had to replace it, as well as the clutch cable and bar end. I could see the loose clip on hitting the frame if it was dangling by the cable.
You bring up a good point on the stops. This bike is out of the immediate area so I have to take his word on hem being there.
Edit: yeah, Deep. It is currently registered and tagged n NY
