Parting vs Selling after crash
Hey guys, went down on the 954 about a year ago. Low sided on my favorite twisty road at about 60mph. My gear did it's job and I walked away with sore shoulder / arm from sliding on my left arm.
But the bike was doing gymnastics or something on its way into the ditch. I found pieces of the front fairing scattered about. Didn't even bother looking for the mirrors that disappeared as I was bumming pretty hard. Tank scratched up fairly bad, crank case scratched, rear brake lever bent, all sorts of ****. But I bungeed the major pieces to the passenger seat and limped home.
Fast forward to today:
Replaced a bunch of stuff. Used front fairing, mirrors, upper stay, speedo housing back, levers, turn signal / lights housing.
My question is: Is it more friendly to my wallet to sell the cosmetically challenged 954 or part it out? I dont mind riding it with the eye-sores but I know it's going to make it hard to sell. Been looking at supermoto's and dual sports lately so have even thought of trading it in at the local stealership.
Any and all opinions would rock, sorry if I am in the wrong forum.
