Rebuilding a Trashed 2007 ZZR600 From the Ground Up

My bike was stolen by a tweeker and later recovered. God Knows what he did to it. I'm figuring I might as well do a full frame off restoration.

Heres the status:

Wont start.
No Spark.
Resistor in ignition is bad.

Tweaker wiring:

My Wiring:

Milky Oil. I'm feeling either the water pump or the head gasket. This dude came down hard on a wheelie. The radiator is messed up a bit. So cylinder or head warpage might be possible.

First step is figuring out if it is worth it.

Lower Left Fairing - 75
Lower Right Fairing - 75
Repair Front Fairing and headlight - 20
Paint - 150
Paint Frame - 30
Bar Ends - 10
Turn Signals 40

New Lock Set - 120
New Plugs - 40

Head gasket - 65
Coolant - 20
Oil - 25
Shims - 40

Radiator (maybe)- 150

Total: $860

Thats my current price list.

I'm not sure where to go from here. Should I pull the head to see if its warped? Leak down test? Should I drop the cash on the ignition and see if thats the only reason it's not getting spark? Wanna buy this mess?

Also, does anybody else have a cali bike? All I have is this:

The two hoses infront of the carbs T off in the middle of the bike. It looks like this connects to some california motorycle part I dont have.

I'm also afraid the ECU is toast. Any way to test it?

I will update this tread if and when I make progress.

To be honest it'll probably be cheaper in the long run if you part out what you do have and buy another bike.

Compression results:

125 100 120 125

I couldn't warm the motor up, but I was able to hotwire it in order to crank it over cold. Can anyone verify psi when cold?
