When I had to do mine I had a buddy who owns a shop help walk me through the estimate. Typically you'll have a shop do a diagnostic inspection, to determine if anything else is damaged. That usually adds an hour or 2 to the estimate.

But even as honest as I was, I padded the estimate a little to account for miscellaneous stuff I may have missed. When the adjuster came out to do his inspection, I even told him I would be doing all the work on the bike, and I was still cut a check for more than double what I asked for. Then again I always carry full coverage, and have a very old policy with the company.

But yeah, add a couple extra hours for inspection labor, and keep yourself in the clear to account for parts you may have missed.

Thanks! Yeah, went on a nice, long moto trip back in September and lost the front end. Broke my collar bone in 3 places, broke 4 ribs and punctured a lung. Got a plate/screws 2 weeks ago and coming along well, just hoping after the soreness and swelling go away that I haven't torn up the rotator cuff.

Bike suffered the usual cosmetic consequences, i.e. rashed tank, plastics and controls. It'll all be good - I'm eager to get back in the saddle.

Received the new tank today. It did NOT come with any of the foam tape or heat shielding. I was able to remove the shielding from the old tank without tearing it, it peeled right off, however, now I'll need to figure out how to glue it back onto the new tank. Suggestions for a type or brand of adhesive would be appreciated.

I'll go over to Ace Hardware this weekend and see if I can find that tape Copperdog mentioned.

Gorilla glue? Lol
Something not heat sensitive, I'd fully expect the bottom of the tank to get at least 180 degree in traffic.

I don't think it gets nearly that hot on the tanks surface, that would most likely be the engine/water temp. So far I've found these products that look to be good, unfortunately I live in motorcycle purgatory and would have to order (and wait) for delivery.

Cool It High Temperature Spray-on Adhesive - good to 160°.
