Salvaged '96 ZX6e??? Need opinions
Hey Guys, just want your opinion on this......... I layed down the ZX6 a few weeks ago and finally I get the news from the insurance company. Total damage estimate is a little over $3400. Salvage value (To buy it back from them if wanted) is only $640. Now since the bike books for $4200 they are letting me decide on whether to fix it, total it, or total it and buy it back. Other than cosmetic damage it has a bent rim and bent forks. I have a new fender, polished rim and a set of forks ready to go. So my question is should I total it and walk away, or should I total it and buy it back to fix it? I don't want to keep this bike after it's fixed though, might just ride it the rest of the summer, and then see what I can sell it for on ebay with a salvaged title in september. What do you figure it'd go for with a salvaged title? After I fix it the only cosmetic damage will be scratches on the upper fairing (Both sides) and a cracked mid left fairing. Laying it down scratched the left side can, but I have a Yoshimura 4>1 exhaust that I haven't put on yet. TIA!!!
