Just got mail from the dealer. There are a few parts that aren't available anymore so they couldn't quote these to the insurer. I've requested to have the detailed report including what they can't get from Triumph at the moment. It does make me wonder what those parts are on a 2010 bike that aren't available anymore.
The good thing at least is that the insurer accepted the claim.

After the mails I visited the dealer, talking face to face is better. Turns out that the frame probably is ok as the impact was at a low speed. The front end however needs some work as at least one of the shocks is bended. Sofar not a total write off, but it will be a while before it's fixed.

I suspect that most insurers would write it off. Hopefully the buy back price will be low.

You'll probably find that you can obtain many of the 'unobtainable' parts or there equivalents via this forum. There'll be somebody who knows ..... !

Hi all,

Thnx for the replies. I know people here might have the parts the dealer right now has issues to find, but it being an insurance item now, there is not much I can do right now. For those who want to check it out, here is the videolink:

That was a seriously good hit. Well played, for staying upright. I doubt I would have  :037:

 :005: i think if you were going any faster you would have been over the top of the car,
you must have the reactions of a cat (or Tiger  :001: ) to turn your bike into it with that short notice, thank gawd you managed to keep it upright  :020:

Update:
Talked with the insurer and all seems well, the expert accepted the damagereport from my dealer. But, when I went to the dealer there was just a little issue, the "yoke assembly lower" and the "tube inner, RH" could not be ordered anymore. I found someone who could order a new replacement tube, but the yoke assembly he couldn't deliver either. So I did some browsing and found the yoke assembly second hand from a 2007 Tiger and according to the seller was it a damage free bike. Fingers crossed now, I just ordered it  :046:
