What to do with my track 954, that was recently crashed...

I had a bit of an off road experience with my track 954. Does not look too bad, and I am sure if someone who knew what they were doing could fix it up, but that is not me. So I was just thinking of selling it as is, and could not even tell you what is good or bad. Or I was thinking of cutting it up and parting it out. But again, I am not very mechanically inclined, so I would not know how to part it. Some parts are obvious, like forks, wheels with rotors, steel braided brake lines, scotts, slip-on, dan kyle forks, but what about the rest.

Has anyone here parted out a downed bike before. Any advice??

BTW, the bike has a salvage title.

I am not a mechanic by any means, but by looking at it...I have a few dings on the tank (signed by Colin Edwards and Jamie James) and the sub frame is a bit off. The tires, wheels and stuff look mint.(BTW, new rotors/pads and new Dunlop GP209). Brakes assembly looks great. Not sure about the forks, but they are Dan Kyle internals. (Don't have the equipment to test them) The engine is mint. The frame is good. (Salvage title) wiring harness is good. Speedo is good (Showing 6000 km). Body work is kinda rough. Kick stand is good. Rear brake lever is bent, but the shifter looks good. (BTW I have a brand new Sato Rear sets for sale also). Front brake and Clutch Lever look good. I have steel breaded lines for the front brakes.

As I said, I am not too mechanically inclined, so I rather just sell the bike as a whole for $3,000 USD as is instead of me trying to rip it apart and sell in pieces.

Re: What to do with my track 954, that was recently crashed...

Hard to tell if it's worth anything like $3000 unless we know what's good and what's not. If it's mostly the bodywork, pegs, etc. that are damaged. (Typical lowside) and the frame, wheels, forks, etc. are in good shape, it could be worth it.


You might want to invest $100-$200 or so and get a shop to do a quick check on the bike so you know what's messed up and what's salvageable. It'll be way easier to sell then (unless you can get a local buyer to come see it)

I might be interested in the brake lines and rear sets, keep us posted if you want to part it out. Maybe take some pictures of it too.

Re: What to do with my track 954, that was recently crashed...

If you could do it, and have the time, I suggest you part it out. It only takes a little bit of know how( remember, taking apart is easier than putting together) and little bit of time, but in the end, you'll fetch more money, and you'll also be helping a lot of people.

Also, from what I've seen on forums, It's not hard to part out a bike, once you tear it down, list EVERYTHING for sale and an estimated price you want, and people will come running. There are many 954 owners that want to fix their wrecked bike, want spares or want to buy mods.

also I have dibs on the stock wheels, and damper

Doesn't sound that bad. Just fix it and keep using it. Dent in the tank won't hurt as long as it still holds fuel. Duct tape will hold bodywork together. Replace the things you need to make it rideable, levers, foorpegs, clipon, and just keep using as a trackie.

I like the way you think. So I finally had some time to take the bike apart (aka body work off) and inspect the bike. I am not a mechanic, but here is what happened. I re-attached the speedo gauge, and turned the key. The lights came on, but no FI squirt. So I looked for the thingy that tells the bike it is right side up. Had a look at it, and the green wire was cut. So I put them back together, wrapped it up in elec. tape. And then I turned the key again. And I can hear the FI squirting!!! YAY. Cranked it and on the first try, everything started up. But it was a bit loud. Turns out my mid section of the pipe has a huge whole. So I threw the seat back on, and took it for a spin down my street. Everything was peachy!! So besides some new dings, busted body work and a whole in the exhaust, it is good to go. Oh, and the sub frame seems a bit off. Oh, and the rear brake leaver is bent. I even have a spare mid pipe from my street bike when I installed my full hindle. (Meant to say got it installed).

So a couple of hundred bucks in duck tape, and I am good to go!!! WOO HOO!!

BTW, the Sato's are now sold.
