A couple of weeks ago some idiot ran a red light and plowed into me on my 95 zx6r. The fairing stuffed but i can replace that for a reasonable price. My problem is that the front wheel is alot closer to the belly pan than it used to be and people I have talked to say that either the frame or the forks are to blame. I cant see any bend in either of them but when I unbolted the fuel tank the bolts would re-align with the holes anymore.
No-one was insured so I dont have much money to do the repairs and from what I have read a new frame goes for $3000 US and I paid $7500 NZ ($1 NZ = 50c US) for the bike. Does this mean that the frame is bent and my precous bike is destined to the wreckers?

It sounds like the frame bent at the neck which is common in wrecks. I would try to find a used frame, I see them forsale all the time.

Check the fork tubes first but . . .

The frame on the '95 was supposed to be weak near the steering head. The '96 and '97 were stronger. There is a guy on eBay who sells frames. He might not advertise what you want but he has lots of other stuff. If you have a choice try for a '96 or '97 frame.
