Insurance Questions - estimate for parts - January 3, 2008, 01:14 PM

I need to get parts estimate on my bike for the insurance company, and I was wondering if any mechanics had recommendations for where to get these (other than ebay). A new engine, gas tank and radiator is the main items I need help finding.

Bike: 2003 SV650

Also, in NC you only need 1 quote for the insurance company; does anyone know if it's the same here or do I need 3?


Thanks for any/all help.

Holy shit, dude. That tip caused catastrophic damage to the engine?!!! No wonder you're going the insurance route. Wow still sucks even though you'll get a new engine.

I suppose bikebandit.com or ronayers.com will likely have all you're looking for. However, if insurance is going to pay, you might as well go to a local shop so that the margin stays local.

It went down on the left side with the kick stand still down and the wheels were laying a couple of feet from where it was standing, so they had to hit it pretty hard.

Aaaahhhh sssshhhhiiiiiiiii... :wince: I assumed it was some drunk a$$hole who tried to sit on it and then tipped it. Didn't realize a vehicle collided with it.

You should definitely take it to RnR or another shop because they may find more wrong with it. Sometimes you don't find things until you start putting it back together. I had this experience with my ninja. Didn't know the clutch lever and master cyl took a substantial impact until I happened to loosen the assembly clamp while trying to get the fork tubes dropped enough to swap out the right clip-on. I then discovered that the lower threads in the clamp were shredded, making for a bust-loose scenario later. Instead, I bought a replacement to install the next nice day I have off.

Heck, since you're filing a claim, tack on the tow. Maybe RnR will come get it, or you can call Two Wheel Towing and Transport at 301-587-6423. Haven't ever had to call them myself, but I keep their card in my wally after RAM Cycles recommended them to me as a precaution.
