How bad is too bad? Frame....

Need some advice here.....hoping my heart doesn't get broken....

Looks like the fork smacked the frame when the 1198 was trying out for the Olympic women's gymnastics team (sadly she didn't qualify)

Since my iPad is being difficult, see following posts for pictures

For those that haven't seen, here is her attempt at a flic-flac into a double salto, as you can see she didn't stick the landing

This video doesn't show a crash fyi. I came here for the carnage!

Edit: sorry on the phone, zoomed in and saw the incident!

When I crashed my S1000RR in 2014, I broke the rear subframe, broke a subframe mounting tab on the main frame, and slightly bent both forks. I took my bike to Wasco Frame Service in Tacoma and he was able straighten the forks and repair the mounting tab and fit a used subframe I bought off ebay. Richard Wascher with Wasco could take a look at your bike and let you know how bad the damage really is.

Damaged frame is always a total if reported to insurance. Have you made sure your insurance company won't cover "schools"? Take it to Wasco, if anyone can fix it they can, or see about getting a frame and swapping the engine, or just part the whole rest of the bike out and start over, or have it evaluated and turn it into a track only bike. You have several options, but it isn't the end of the world.

Good Choice.

Richard "Wasco" is an absolute wizard at fixing un-fixable sh!t.

Absolutely not true in 100% of cases.
Totally depends on your bike, and your insurer.

Source: got hit by a truck on my bike a year ago, and had damage to the frame. Total cost to fix the bike (including a new frame) was substantially less than the cost of buying the bike out.

I specifically asked about frame damage and declaring it a total loss. Their answer: on a motorcycle a frame is just a piece of aluminum.

They cut me a check to fix it.

Yeah, the left side rear set tabs are bent up, motowheels actually has a new set of tabs to weld on that are a bit sturdier, hopefully they won't bend next time I go down haha. Just have to grind off the old and find somebody with more skills than me to weld on the new!
