They'll total it. I had far less damage when I dumped a brand-new Ninja 250R and the guy told me before he even added up the parts that it was totalled. Any 250 is so cheap to begin with it really doesn't take much damage to add up to a total.

Because of the misfortunate experiences of the OP and Pete Falcone, I have decided to invest in heavy anti-theft artillery. My 250 is insured against theft, but I have over $5,000.00 invested in mods (suspension, brakes, full exhaust) and internal engine modifications with dyno tuning. I would never recover my investment or time from insurance in a theft situation. So I put more money into the best anti-theft system I could find.

One persistent mistake I see riders make when trying to ride faster: Using too much lean, too late in the corner, well after the apex of a turn. This is precisely where you want to be on the gas not increasing lean. Remedy: use reference points for tip in and use a strong countersteer input to quickly flick the bike to max lean at tip in
Add lean angle or power, never both = highside
Remember practice makes permanent

Usually you can get the price of accessories added to your policy.

I am sorry for your loss. If they total it, you can tell them you want to buy it from them. The parts are cheap if bought online. If there is no frame or engine damage fix the cosmetics, get a salvage title and a new paint job and still be $$ ahead.

Some people are not very tactful, but the idea that it is just a machine should help you get over it. Machines, like all material possessions can be fixed or replaced. Kind of a zen thing. I hope it all works out for you.
