somebody is selling me a damaged 2000 red Yamaha R1 w/20000km for $5000.He got in a accident going 80km/h and wiped out. He had no comprehensive and doesnt have enough money to pay to fix it.
It has no left fairing and the left upper light is cracked. there is electrical wirings that got damaged on the same side. the tank has a 3 inch dent and scratch and the a gash on the pipe. He said He had a mechanic check it out and he said it costs 3000 to fix with originall yamaha parts. Do you think that is a fair price? do you know if I can fix it cheaper without OEM parts.
he told me that the engine is still good and steering geometry is fine. what is the best way you think I should go about this? do you think its worth it for me to buy it and fix it?
If anybody can help me with this that will be great.
