I don't know if this would apply to these bikes or not. The question that I've not seen asked is, Did the bike keep running for a period of time while on it's side? If so, how long?

A friend of mine crashed his crotch rocket at the track once. The insurance company asked the above two questions. He told them that it had in fact been running for a minute or two until he gathered himself up and got to the bike to shut it off. They told him they wanted to total the bike due to possible oil starvation issues and the possibility that the motor suffered while running when is was on it's side.

I didn't see this addressed anywhere above, and I just throw it out there for consideration.

Aside from this question, the rest looks totally repairable.
