ive been a lurker at "both" sites for a while now........(i cant believe the B.S. that went down)........needless to say this is the site for me......you guys are the best... :pow:
but to get to my question...i have a 05 triple..with 3200 miles,
TORS, clip-ons, fly screen, bellypan, seat cowl, and a GSXR 1000 front brake system...
the bike was knocked oveer in a parking lot by a older lady (who shouldnt even been driving)
her inshurance company totalled my bike and gave me the option to purchase it back for cheap (which i did)
but now i want to but a 07 triple....
so i was wondering what you guys thought my 05 was worth?.......it does have a salvage title now but the only damage done is
the clutch side engine case has some scuffing on it........other than that the bike is MINT
thanks for your help guys

I think the salvage title puts it in the "whatever someone is willing to pay for it" they are real difficult to price.

In reality, it is worth whatever you can get for it. Check Ebay for what salvage titles are selling for compared to others in good condition.

Contact me with a price if you decide to get rid of it.

Could sell the bike to a friend for tops $3,500 - to 4g's I bet. Strangers wont buy salvaged title bikes... smart ones anyway. Why was the bike deemed total loss. Frame damage?

no frame damage.....just a bar end and clutch side case cover scratched......i have no idea why her inshurance totalled it (other than that old lady shouldnt of been behind the wheel - they are lucky she didnt run over the bike with me on it - she couldnt see shit)

I'm not calling you a lying bastard or anything... :violent1: ;D  but that's kinda hard to believe. Total a $8k bike for $250 worth of damage?!? ??? ::)

my bid just dropped to $50 including shipping. :devil:

You might be looking at this all wrong. The only thing totaled on your 05 is the frame and the engine (they have vin stamps), the rest can be parted out. Some part you might want to keep as spares for the 07. If you need three of four grand sell the salvage title, if not part it out. The bad thing is that it appears that Speed triple buys are very cheap, no pun intended. LOL I bet your gsxr set up, header, swing arm, accessories, and tors, could bring you some good money. If you accessories aren't damaged you could keep them and change your 07 to yellow. There is definitely some possibility here without trying to sell a salvage title.

Personally I wouldn't buy it.

If you need money part it out
