2007 Versys Part-Out: Gauging Interest

So my '07 V got written off two weeks ago, just got the call from the adjuster yesterday regarding the value and what I can do now. I have the option to buy it back with a salvage title and am considering a part-out, but wanted to see how much interest that might generate on here first.

Bike:
2007 Versys
Black
~20,000 kms/14,000 miles
All stock, located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Crash:
Rear-ended and low-sided on left. Basically nothing from the left side is recoverable (fairings, indicators, gear lever, clutch lever, handlebars)

However, the right side is mint cosmetically, and I figure things like the instrument panel, headlight, windscreen, wheels+tires, brake lever, fairing etc. might sell.

Does anyone have any experience doing this with a bike? Success, failure, pain in the ass?

Does anyone want/need parts from it right off the bat?

Depending on how many $ you have to pay to "buy" it, could be a GOOD thing!

The buyback is 15% of the appraised resale value, so it's pretty cheap. The problem is I don't think there are enough Versys riders in my area that would want parts, and being in Canada makes shipping a bit more restrictive.

Look for engines, clutches, transmissions and wheels on ebay. Brake rotors, callipers, ecu , wire harnesses, seat, etc. Forks? If you only need to cover 15%, that should be very possible. It'll take a good amount of dis-assembly, photos, packaging, and dealing with ebay fees and scammers, but if you have the time, I think it should easily be profitable.

Cheers, Jeff

Especially if there's a close '07 rider who might want some parts for his bike :P (sent you a pm btw T-Wall)
