    I am the shameful new owner of a ‘15 800GT that came to me crashed and in a bunch of pieces.
    At the risk of rapidly getting banned, I am thinking about turning it into an “almost 800R”.
    So I apologize in advance for the upcoming stupid questions…

    Welcome to the forum, dbarale.That sounds like a useful project to me. Why deliver a crashed 800GT to a salvage yard to be parted out when you can turn it into a street fighter?

    I'm looking forward to your posts.

    A few years ago there was a fellow who converted to a dirt tracker. I wonder if he's still active - I'm sure he'd have some experience to contribute.
