ok so had a friend come check out the bike over the weekend, the guy worked at a dealership for many years repairing wrecked bikes. He says its not that bad? and offered to help me rebuild the engine using the cases from Ben. My motor turns over, and its smooth(has under 6k btw) and he thinks that it will be fine. I would still need some engine parts(clutch basket, right side cover, clutch cover, oil pan.) all new bearings, bolts and gaskets. and basically have a fresh engine for around 6-700.

|madbuyer||Sooooo are you going to buy a new engine....that from the beginning looked like a solid hit. Nice pictures of your exploratory surgery|

Well, took off some parts and got a closer look. I was hoping to just swap out the lower case but that dont look possible now.... it just keeps getting better

I did happen to notice the primary gear got a tooth knocked off.
So I'm not sure the crankshaft will be true.

With that kind of hit, I wouldn't be suprised to find internal damage as well. Granted there really isn't a lot of stuff directly behind the impact area, but that was a very direct hit.
At least pull the clutch cover, clean all the crap out, drop the pan, pull the plugs and see if it turns over easily by hand and that there aren't any obvious issues before you spend any money.

They can be used to check bearing clearances with plasti-gauge, but only new ones are allowed for final assembly torque + degree.

I know it is not much to consoling you. Glad you can walk away from the incident. There is a company in FL. Sun Coast Cycle Sport $1100.00 /free shipping
I have a couple of engines from the group. They seem to be honest with the milage(giver or take a hundred miles or so.)
Hope that this will help.. Ride again, best hopes..
