Exclamation Wrecked RC51

Looking for advice. I was hit on April 22 of this year by a Lady in a Range Rover who "totaled" my SP1 RC51. Actually its mostly cosmetic damage, ie: new fairings all around, new fairing stay, headlights, tank has a big dent, radiators have holes in them, and rotors now need to be replaced, but the forks, frame, swing arm, wheels and engine are all ok. Of course the repair estimate exceedes the NADA value listed but with normal modifications (Ak Exhaust, Sato Clip Ons, PC3, levers) and "fair market value" its worth much more than NADA. So Her insurance Co. wants to give me just a little under NADA value and total the bike out. I have small injuries from the accident and she was totally held at fault for the accident.
ANY ADVICE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Are you able to salvage anything from the bike if your insurance company writes it off?

Glad to hear your ok...

Nope they took pictures of everything. BUT! they actually folded and gave me "fair market value" for everything. So now I've got to find another RC51 to fill the void.

Depending on how well you get along with your insurance company. See if they will give you the max amount with out totaling the bike. That is what I had my insurance company do and I repaired my bike myself. It was borderline, but I refused to let my bike go. And then you can keep your bike and start with a clean slate.

I did the same as firstcherokeekid when my zx 6r got smoked. Obviously there is a extent you can only go too. I hope to hear you are back in the twisties soon.
