Well I wouldint think so. Just want to be sure before I buy it back. Anyone have their fairings off that can possibly check for me?

The "dent' in the frame is supposed to be there.

The marks in the subframe are probably just small stress marks I wouldn't be concerned as long as it is straight.

Thanks RLS. Thats what I figured about the subframe, but I just wanted to make sure about the frame.

Yea, I would be worried about a kawi. But the pic makes it look alot worse than it is. It basically just rubbed into the frame. And for my buy back price as long as it wasnt bent it will be worth it.

No but these newer bikes are getting lighter and hence thinner material is used. Plus the older bikes were steel and these are a lot of cast aluminum and doesn't like to be dropped

Yes the components are getting lighter/thinner but if you bent your frame every time you dropped it racing would be impossible cause crashing is inevitable.

+1.

I've maintained the insurance on my race/track bike, on the off-chance that I'm gonna convert it for occasional street use. Anyway, I crashed it a couple months ago at a track school. The damage was not huge, but enough that insurance would have made a total loss of it.

I *could* have claimed it.

I didn't.

It's a personal decision, but I think of insurance as something that will cover those accidents that I don't have any real direct control over. Stolen bike, getting sideswiped by a minivan, etc.

Trackdays? That's where I'm willingly exploring my limits, and I know I'm taking an appreciably greater risk. If I go down, it is usually going to be 100% my fault, and it just doesn't seem right to me to make an insurance claim on that.
