'08 With a hair over 5k miles on it. Unfortunately, I don't have the option of scrapping it and replacing it because of Kawasaki's financing through HSBC I'd get hung out to dry on the $6800 I still owe. >.< (AVOID KAWI/HSBC LIKE EVERY PLAGUE KNOWN TO MAN)
As for what state, I'm in Idaho. I'm having a go-round with my insurance right now over their explanation of my coverage. As of Wednesday though, all of my policies with them are canceled over this and I'm changing carriers. Their wonderful fine print wording considers "upsetting the vehicle without cause by collision is deemed an avoidable action. Any damage resulting from upsetting of the vehicle is not covered under vehicular collision coverage."
The overblown estimate of $3300 on parts was for replacing every little piece back to factory original, including replacing things I had intentionally removed, and still have (such as my mirrors, my original windscreen, handlebars). The labor charge on that put it up to nearly $5k.
The $800 repair was to make it rideable again, and that was including labor. the parts came out to about $500.
I'm now officially in the position where I'm just going to have to suffer through the slow rebuild, because I cant afford to take the hit financially any other way.
