Wow.

I say again, "Wow".

looking at the wear on the clutch cover, it looks like it was ridden quite a bit and they exchanged some plastics on it to keep it looking fresh. or maybe they kept the originals and raced it with aftermarkets? if you're going to decieve someone into thinking hte bike is low hours/use, buying a $75 clutch cover would seal the deal for a lot of people.

Being that there is a # plate on, I wonder if it was motox'ed a lot?

I sent the guy an email asking a few questions.

Don't know about you guys but for me, I'd rather have the stock forks on.

I'm also curious if the guy has any info on how everything is sprung and valved. That 1500 suspension may be just perfect for some and a total waste or a step back wards for his weight, speed and type of riding.

Does the rear fender looked cocked or is that just the angle of the picture?

Freakin Hondas.............for years I noticed that a lot of models come thru brand new with a rear fender off to one side or another, so it makes it tough to decider if one has a slightly tweaked subframe or the fender is just tweaked a bit :devil:

just to give you guys an idea i have an hour meter on my bike and it is at jsut about 31 hours and my clutch cover has about 1/3 of that wear. just food for thought i have seen some people rub the covers bare really quick while others don't. and if you ride in the mud alot that will make it happen alot quicker

Good food for thought .......... :devil:

Also it does not have a a certificate of origin, so can't that turn in to a big hassle to get another? Don't you have to backtrack to the original owner or the 2nd guy to get one then? :thumbsdn: Seems like a pain, maybe not??

If the guy gives you the serial #, is it possible to trace it thru the dealer or state so you know it is not stolen before the ebay sale is over with?

:thumbsdn: I think I'd rather pay more and have a perfect bike with no hassles

The bike is for sale in Rhode Island. I am guessing they probably have a lot of mud there... my two cents.

Like I posted earlier, if I didn't already have four bikes in the garage I would have clicked "Buy It Now" about 20 minutes after I saw it.

$2k. Holy guano, Batman. You could part the freaking bike for more than that.

True, but this guy has a 97.5% feedback rating on 90 transactions. He doesn't appear to be the deceiver type... imho.

The guy weighs 150lbs and he says it feels great to him so that means for anyone that is say out of the 140-160 range the thing should probably be resprung and revalved so your slapping around 4-500 just to get the suspension in the ballpark again. Maybe a bit less but probably more although it could be less but then again I'd say most definitly more but ................
