Dropped my 696, cracked engine case..

Yep, as the title says, dropped the bike, and cracked the casing right behind the kickstand mounting area. It was a 5mph fall, after a hard stop which happened to be on a slippery cross walk strip. Felt like ice under my front wheel, next thing I was on my side. Stood up, see oil on the floor. FML


Going through insurance the most I can expect for an Ď09 with 11,600m... $3k ? Not worth it. I just finished 7500/m valve/belt service, also installed new clutch, new tires, chain and sprockets, Termis, swapped forks for showa 1100S adjustables with full rebuild and race tech springs. All work at DucatiNYC.

I spoke to a shop that has dealt with case repairs in the past, unfortunately they said draining and flushing the oil, and then welding the crack closed is something they donít want to try in my situation. A full motor swap is the recommended option.

Any thoughts ? Iíve considered parting the bike out, but that could take a long long time. Also an engine swap isnít much harder than on a car, and Iíve done plenty of those, so there is that option.

Any one know a shop thatís done a case weld repair without engine disassembly ?
