I Think they are trying to screw you. Because last year a buddy of mine at my bike shop bought a totaled 99 Sprint ST from an insurance company with almost exactly the same damage for $100.00. He pulled all the broken fairing bits off, bought a new radiator and oil cooler. Attached those along with a headlight off a 4wheeler (don't mean a car) and is riding it as a streetfighter.
If you have any buddies at the bike shop see how much the insurance company offers it to them.
