2017 Honda CRF 1000 l
« on: December 17, 2019, 09:35:39 pm »
Hi

I picked up a CRF 1000 with a bent subframe, damaged exhaust, right radiator shroud damaged and probably a damaged rim

Any advice or suggestions ?  Honda Cape Town quoted R224 000 to repair .  I own a number of bikes and intend to build a rally styled bike - any comments , suggestions. This will be a special bike , it will join the Vintage Factory Cape Town collection when done. See Vintage Factory Cape Town on Facebook

All suggestions re options and sourcing greatly appreciated

A new 1100 is R210k so R224k to repair is crazy

1st thing I would do is dump that std zorst.. that's going to save you more than a few Kg's, anything emissions related can go.

Yes please,
From 990R to GSA LC to 1290 so next up probably an AT. . . .

Anyway I spotted this a while ago before buying the 1290 which could probably send you in the right direction:

good luck with your build!

Update
Bike sent to Honda for repair quote - R225 000

1. Ignore Honda quote
2. Strip rear get frame straightened - price R2 k
3. Order damaged plastics all in less than R10 k
4. Bike an Akrpovic tonight
5. Get bike ready for roadworthy
6. Once in my name and satisfied with outcome - commit to building the most spectacular Local adventure bike
7. Import Boano kit
8. Reduce / remove all necessary weight
9. Get some Ti
10. Welcome it into the Vintage Factory Honda collection and park the 990 for a while . Honda collection can be seen on Facebook at Vintage Factory Cape Town - enjoy

Really upbeat about the future on the CRF 1000
