that should cover it, i've got about 200 pound in the bank !!!! who does discount ??!!

sorry to tell ya dan uk, but IMHO u r definately totalled out....
you havent even begun to add labor (which may also reveal need for a frame..),
which will likely double the cost infront of you. Not to be the bearer of bad news, but ive gone thru the similar estimate (mine eventially revealled irreversible frame damage) on my slingshot gsxr......check into buyin it back and doin something with it on your own...(if they pay, the insurance co will require all work to be done by the estimating shop, and will cut the check to them or to them on your behalf..)

hope you are better bro!!! head up!!
