Lightbulb New frame options? Get in here and help me save an 06 1k

Well lads it's happened, lowsided in the canyons this weekend and my frame sliders did their job incredibly well

Except for the part where the left one caught a crack in the pavement and flung my k6 1k 10 feet into the air while I was sliding on my back away from it helplessly watching it disintegrate

Worst sound in the world rankings has "bone breaking" demoted to 2nd, with "k6 frame snapping" taking number one

Bonus photos of the scenery included

I'm dead set on rebuilding, don't want to hear shit about buying another bike, I have the cash for the s1000rr but I'm set on rebuilding this girl thats been so good to me

Need your guys advice with frames/sourcing/what's legit whats not and my options from here

If anyone wants to see photos of how a shoei rf1200, alpine stars smx 6 boots, scorpion covert pro jeans, gp air gloves and gp tech jacket hold up I'll post photos, 10/10 would buy skinned kangaroo jacket again

Woah that's bananas. Glad you're okay. I respect your loyalty to the bike but holy smokes where to begin... even if the motor is salvageable it looks like new frame, forks, wheels.. maybe just the pics but they all look bent. I'd start with a full inventory.

If you're replacing half the bike, might as well buy the same bike again and swap it over if this one has sentimental value.

Yes please share photos of the gear and tell us more about the crash.

https://imgur.com/a/z1HoN Sorry for the iPhone photos, let me know if there's anything else you want to see (bonus photos of PR4 chicken strips)

I think the forks look pretty straight, I tried to get them from a couple different angles to tell, the front rim is bent inward though it'll need replacing

Crash story is pretty lame lol..out in the twisty bits riding solo, was leaned over halfway through a tight turn when another rider comes up the other side and waved..so I waved back

Without even thinking I took my left hand off the bar and waved back..and didn't recover in time lol first crash ever riding, first crash in 3 years pretty lame as far as crashes go, lowsided and slid on my back, frame slider turned bae into a catapult and here I am

Well that really sucks man,but more importantly you are ok.
I have seen several K5/6 frames for sale on the regular. Mostly on the drag race-specific groups on FB.

You're in luck,because the K5/6 is one of the most popular drag race 1000's so there are shitloads of OEM parts for sale 24/7 on the drag forums,just as Im sure there are on the WERA/roadrace forums.

There is also the option of buying your Red R and sourcing good,used bits from our members here.

Go A* saving your skin.. gear is the best.

It's this kind of stuff that makes me second-guess my frame sliders.

Re: New frame options? Get in here and help me save an 06 1k

Frame sliders can help if the ground is perfectly smooth, but I've seen them cause ridiculous amounts of damage when they catch on anything and fling the bikes. It's a double-edged sword, with one blunt side and one razor-sharp side.
Glad to see you made it out okay.

GB Racing makes a race slider that looks pretty good,I am surprised they aren't more popular.

I haven't claimed anything on insurance, titles still technically clean

If I can get a clean title frame, with the title, just swap everything over then notify the dmv?

I'm looking on the 13x forums and theres a few frames for sale, one with a "clean vin but no title", there's a few with this story apparently?

Thank you man, thought process while sliding and watching it transition from sliding to launching off an aircraft carrier went "ah it'll be ok, cheap chinese fair-GOD PLEASE NO OH-SNAP!"

10/10 would recommend sliding in dead kangaroo/kevlar/cowhide

Don't regret a single penny spent on the A*s gear

Yes,the new rage has been selling/buying bikes with "no title,but has Bill Of Sale&clean VIN",or "has salvage title". This shit is extremely popular on Craigslist and Facebook groups.

I'll keep my eye out for a good,clean #'s matching frame for you. Typically between $1000-1500 is the going rate.

Had you crashed earlier,I had two titled K5 frames for ya

Frame sliders are great on a relatively smooth surface(such as a race track) but for obvious reasons,on the street they can be great or make matters worse. I watched a buddy(was literally right behind him) come in too hot for a corner on a mountain run,lowside at 50-55mph and we all watched in slo-mo as his bike slid a good 100',hit a slightly raised manhole cover which launched the bike and sent it cartwheeling with parts flying off in every direction.

If it has no title, it's the equivalent of stolen because they cannot prove true ownership and you can't transfer it without a giant hassle.
Your best bet is to keep looking until you find someone with an actual title

Re: New frame options? Get in here and help me save an 06 1k

Glad you're alive and well, but you should really come up with a better crash story

Gear ftw, definitely saved a lot of your skin for sure.

Those pictures are gnarly...and the few scenery ones mixed in make it extra sad.

Good luck on the rebuild, you may want to get that s1000rr while you wait for parts

Re: New frame options? Get in here and help me save an 06 1k

I couldn't tell. Did the bike have the frame brace?

This will give you an idea of what used frames go for. Even cracked ones go for a fair amount, though the buyer might have been thinking in terms of getting it replaced under warranty - iffy on a ten year old part.

Perhaps sliders with rounded ends like these or these would be less prone to snag on things.

At least you're OK.

Fuck all that noise. That's what we pay insurance for. Get a check and move on to another bike.


Edit: My bad...just reread the part about you not wanting to hear about another bike. Good luck with the rebuild.

Everything can be repaired with the right amount of money and time but....wow....I'm in awe of someone even considering the challenge here.

I tried, the cost would've ended up outweighing the upside if I went through with it :/ took a month off to clear my head

Any tips/advice on how to proceed with a part out?
