G/F and I went for a ride coupe weeks ago. She pulled in front of me and slowed down, my left front hit her right rear, flipping the bike over and ending up upside down. Thankfully have full coverage, so took it to a dealer to have them check it out and fix it. I got a call Friday, and looks like it's gonna get totaled. $4500 just in parts. Frame, steering stem/bars, right tie rod/CV shaft, both rear trailing arms, plastics, grab bar, brand new full Muzzy exhaust :th_smiliefrustrated and some other stuff I can't remember. But what pisses me off, blue book on it is $6500-6900, depending what book you use. Machine is in excellent condition, not even 800 miles yet. I asked the insurance company about if it does get totaled, how will they come up with an amount to replace it. They said there is no blue book for ATVs, which is obviously BS, KBB and NADA. But he said they go by current market value. That would be so much better than the blue book, since I paid $8k for just about a year ago. Every 1000 'gade I see is well over that. I should hear from them early this week, already missed out on a mud race today, and end of the month is another good ride in Hancock NY. I miss it already...:sad:

But what's weird is I was only doing bout 20 when it went over. I'm sure it's the 800 pounds that did the damage, but damn, totaling it??? Riding the grizz just isn't the same.

Glad you or the GF didn't get hurt. Seems like an awful lot of damage for a small whack and roll but as you said the 800lbs probably had something to do with it. Too bad you can't switch back the original exhaust prior to the transfer of title when it is totaled out. Have you asked?

That sounds like a pretty hard hit,…...

The only good thing left on the exhaust is the can. Header pipe where the merge pipes slips over is bent as well as both merge pipes. Header can prolly be straightened but I think the merge pipes are done. If they were good, then I would ask bout keeping it, as I do have the stock exhaust. I didn't tell them bout the $800 in tires/wheels, controller and Moose heated grips cause there wasn't any damage done to them. But if they do total it, and will only give me said amount, I will tell them bout the that stuff and see what they say. Dealer asked if I had the stock tires, but sold them last year. For now have to wait till insurance call and see what they say.

I didn't think it was a hard hit/impact either, but the whole machine was basically in the air, upside down almost when it landed. Also forgot mention it was on blacktop, which that sure didn't help any. I think if on dirt the damage would be half of what it is.
