Wow, I didn't notice the frame snap

And is that the instrument cluster down by the swingarm?

Bin the bike and get another one, you can't rebuild that, it's beyond fucked.

Edit:

Just came across this video of you describing the crash


What a failure, where the fuck in the crash video did the bike shake you side to side violently?? Don't try and blame the bike, it was simply your bad riding and inappropriate speed for the roads that caused you to crash, the bike could EASILY have made that corner.

Re: TOTALLED 07' Gixxer 1000

When the video opens and you pass all those people in a straight line, I immediately thought 'inexperienced squid on a fast bike'. You were lucky that no one else in that long string of traffic decided to pass as you're coming by 100mph faster.

The second and just-as-obvious indicator that you shouldn't be on a litrebike was the crash itself. You were in a turn that was easily pulled-off by ANY decent rider but while you're in the oncoming lane(???), in the second or so you had to set-up for the left-right, you target-fixated, froze... and we all saw how that ended.

There's a reason everyone says it's a bad idea to start riding on fast bikes. Until you master turning (confidently), it takes a lot of saddle-time to develop the judgement required to manage the much higher speeds that comes with 150+hp.

There's no reason you should have gone down there, except for what I just stated above. This was your last accident? Not likely, until you overcome your lack of experience, skill and judgement.

Not to bust your balls.... Glad you're OK. Get a smaller bike and learn to ride it.

Re: TOTALLED 07' Gixxer 1000

No mirrors on the bike,ridiculous gearing as indicated by the inaccurate speedo reading&no skill whatsoever. The only reason you totaled your bike around that gentle curve is simpl: you are the epitome of a squid.

I can just imagine it...

Whats that? You are just as likely to wreck on a 250, as you are on a big SS bike? It's all in the wrist, so long as you respect the bike?

You won't wreck like that on a 250, I'm sure...


I'm amazed by the overtaking, looks like some kind of orange Ninja was overtaking in front, right when S. Quid came blasting by...how badly that could have ended at those speeds, like that vid a couple of months back where a guy clipped a trailer at serious speed.

The corner leading up to the crash is interesting. In my mind, you didn't even "finish" the first corner before cutting the lines over for the next one.





I wonder how OP's jimmies are...

1998 GSXR 750: Titanium Yoshimura Tri Oval Exhaust System, Lindemann Engineering Forks (Superbike Revalve), Nitron NTR R3 Shock,
K&N Filter, A.P.E MCCT, Matris M4R Damper, Factory Pro Case Covers, Renthal Clip Ons, Robby Moto Rearsets,
Goodridge Steel Lines, Brembo RCS Master Cyl, Nissin 6 Pot Calipers, Brembo Clutch Perch
Yoshimura Triple Clamps, Sato Exhaust Hanger, Carbon Fender, Yoshimura Pillion pegs.

Re: TOTALLED 07' Gixxer 1000

Unfortunately,
we all knew how the vid would end from watching the first few seconds. Seems you were showing out for the group and fucked yourself hard.

Is this a classic case of starting on a liter bike?

Re: TOTALLED 07' Gixxer 1000

Its a pitty too see the bike like that. As everyone already mentioned, the bike could make that turn easily. More saddle time and less "showing off" might have saved you from that crash...

Glad your OK tho.

You're thinking of piecing this poor bike back together? I'm afraid that ship has sailed.
In the pic, the front of the frame / steering head is still connected to the forks. You busted the whole front of the frame... errrr.... 'OFF'.

I see a lot of JB weld and duct tape in your future.

Re: TOTALLED 07' Gixxer 1000

With the price of this "rebuild", you could probabaly buy a 250, a 600, 3 rider's school classes and 10 track days. I'd recommend parking the 600 for a good year and running the 250 until you figure out this whole riding thing.

God damn; you gave that bike the ol' BassAgent treatment.

Get a different bike. Not even worth it.

unlikely - the video has been made private. I think our young rider has made a run for the hills.
