TOTALLED 07' Gixxer 1000

Sup guys. I haven't been active lately, well at all. On November 24, 2012 I was in an accident that should have killed me. Some of you may have already seen my video on YouTube
(looks like an easy turn on YouTube but not in real life) . I was riding like a fool, a nut but hey we've all been there. This was my first accident AND my last.

I have plans to rebuild her and be back up by summer of 2013. I have never done a rebuild so this will for sure be my first. I will document my rebuild and post videos to YouTube. My channel is http://www.youtube.com/user/RiceRocketKev Please subscribe and follow my progress. Here are some pics.





I know some people will give me shit. But hey, I broke it and I'll fix it.

I saw this and all the shit they gave you on BARF. Do yourself a huge favor and go to the track or you might not be so lucky the next time.

So, is it safe to say you've not ridden that road many times over?

Why rebuild? Have insurance get you a new bike.

Yes, but crashing into a nice runoff filled with gravel and no obsticles is a lot nicer...and a lot better for your health


I kinda wonder if you had stuck to the right, and then cut in late like you should, whether you would have made that corner. Meh, ah well, good luck with your fixxerupper.

Re: TOTALLED 07' Gixxer 1000

Why not fix what you break? You'd just buy another, huh? The most expensive parts are frame, complete forks, radiator and tank. She'll be up and running by hopefully June 2013.

Re: TOTALLED 07' Gixxer 1000

Part wise.. will be more than getting a new bike. Unless you just buy cheapies I guess?

New frame = new title, new vin so.. have to get it registered, transferred, pay taxes.
Basically you have what.. an engine?

So, pick up a blown engine, replace your 1k engine with it.
Call insurance (you should have that.. if you are riding like the above)
Get it totaled.. Get your money, sell 1k motor, buy new(er) bike.

He could have made the corner if he had committed or been going slower...but I am not one to critique people or tell him what he already knows.

This is a perfect example of why its always better to slow side always always always if you don't think you are going to make the corner push that f'ing bike till she slides out and away from you he would have been a ton better sliding into the mountain then off the cliff

Re: TOTALLED 07' Gixxer 1000

Stop dicking around on the street......if you want to ride like that, take it to Thunderhill, you're only 2 hours away for crissakes.


And yeah, there's no point in rebuilding that, you'll spend more than you would getting another K7 1000 used.

I saw a perfectly good Chevy Silverado parked right there. Why not just use the truck to pull it out.

Don't rebuild that bike. It will cost you way more than a new bike and a few track days. Plus 07-08 has frame weld issues.

I think you mean K5/6, at least they are the ones with a recall for frame issues.
