Hi guys I'm wondering if a busted swing arm from a chain letting go plus busting one of the twin carbon fibre pipes an smashing the gear selector an half the left side rear set on a 07 R1 would class a stat write off in Victoria?? But rest of the bike is immaculate?

They determine this stuff by the price to fix it vs its market value.
Except when there is frame damage. Then i think they always total it.

But they have to use brand new swing arm in replacement correct? So they have to see if there's even any spare for it to replace, an now noticing in dints to the rear wheel! Spent a lot of time an money an not looking for a replacement bike just to see if any have had same thing happen an could shed some light! Swing Arm, left side rearset ( Sato) busted left side muffler ( Full Yoshimura TRC Carbon pipes) an left side chain adjuster ( LighTech ) supersprox 520 conversion kit Ahhhhh

Don't know about Victoria but swingarm only wouldn't stat write it off in NSW. Here you need 3 point of damage to frame and or suspension. That covers frame, sub frame, swingarm, forks, tripples, shock.
The damage you describe would make it an economic write off but not a stat (Even though in NSW all write offs are now stat regardless)
Depending on your policy they may be able to use 2nd hand parts.
Speak to your repairer. If you want it written off they can probably quote to make it so. If you don't want it written off and want it repaired ask them to quote it low with 2nd hand parts.
Hope that helps.

Sounds like from your last post you want to keep the bike. Get a quote, see what it comes too, then ask them for a repair proposition, if they accept, they pay you (less than write off amount) and you effect the repairs yourself. Benefit for them is they have no liability/warranty on the repairs and it's cheaper for them. Benefit for you; do it yourself for much less using good 2nd hand parts and pocket thousands for more mods or whatever. Been through this before.
