Just take the buyout not worth the hassle. Just my two cents.

Well, cleaned up all the wiring,installed a new battery, and it fired right up. Only code was for the dtc box. Dtc error 8.0. So Iíll order one of those and we should be solid.

Sorry for ur bike mate..
According to my meca, this is a regulator issue..
Last week, I went for a "boiling" issue in the water cooling system and they discovered that the regulator was heating and burning the wires all around.
Typical issue for a bike of this age with an "old" battery, he said..
They replaced the regulator and the melted wires.

Did you contact antigravity at all and inform them.

You think the old antigravity batteries are different from the new ReCharge batteries they make?

It's a combination of parts. Using an old voltage regulator with a lithium battery. Most of the times the voltage regulator is the culprit, which results in the battery going *whoosh* and most likely your stator being fried as well.

Lessons learned the hard way.

Good luck.

Guys:
The voltage regulators get too hot, causing uncontrolled charging at the battery. The LI batteries cannot take it so they catch on fire. Very simple.
The fix is a few things - do a layer of 1.5" wide glass cloth wrap at the front cylinder header. Not all the way up to the head. Start about an inch or so away. Wrap it 8 to 10" down the pipe. Use radiator hose clamps to keep in place. Can order online.
Second item is get a sheet of glass cloth with sticky backing and aluminized front facing. Cover the outside of the battery box with it. I did 2 layers. Bought a sheet at the auto parts store. Once done, put in the NEW regulator. And by the way, once you run the bike for a while, check the interior faces of the lower bodywork for light brown discoloration. This is due to you now driving the heat rearward further down the header, so this area is now hotter. Fix there is clean the interior panel well and apply some of that aluminized glass cloth along that area as well.
You are welcome !

it will be getting bought back from the insurance company.
My bike was totaled for a bent rearset tab. Got 8500 for it bought it back for 1500. Took the money and build another one from scratch, and bent the tab back on the other. Ended up with two bikes.

The damage looks bad but honestly once you tear it apart, all you probably need to actually replace is the wire harness, some electrical components and anything plastic that melted I bet the frame / metal parts are fine other than paint.

salvaged bikes lose 40% of the book value (in your case, lowest estimate due to fire)

Li batts in theory would require a Li-specific rectifier and Li-specific charger to work properly
