Going to give it a week or so on Craigslist as a whole bike. If it doesn't sell, I'm parting it out.

What I have-

Complete running bike. New (6 months trail riding) OEM top end including complete head and a piston. New timing chain.

New stuff on the bike in the last 6 months- Mylers oversize radiators, Unabiker gurads (black), fork seals, chain and sprockets (DID and renthal), FMF Q4 (2 weeks old), etc.

All of the electric start components removed except for the starter itself.

YZ rear fender. Stock fender too.

Factory connection complete revalve and sprung for 190 lb rider front and rear. Super plush. Like a cadillac.

I'll post links here to the stuff on Ebay as I get it up.

-If it doesn't sell this week...

$1500 sounds like a good deal.... I couldn't imagine it lasting long.. hell i had a 1997 XR400 i sold for 1200 bucks and I had people fighting over it in my driveway....... If for some wierd reason it isn't sold in a couple days......i might be interested in a second bike... and I got some cash laying around...... only down fall is that its like a 11 hour drive one way

One more thing.. i recommend you put some pictures up... for some reason stuff doesn't sell well on the internet without a picture or two

Make more money. A hassle, but often worth it. Plus, I get to keep the parts i want like the 18" rear, bars, maybe even the suspension.

I don't want to get in to PMs and emails and all to part it out. I'm going to use Ebay. It's just too difficult otherwise.

Thanks for the recommendation. I fully agree. I'll put up a video of it too.

I would think it could be done for under $200. I have a bunch of freight carriers around me. I could take the wheels off and strap it to a skid pretty easily.

Pics going on the craigslist add in a minute.

What all would it take to get it back to electric start? Just a battery or is there other stuff missing? Do you still have any of the estart parts that were removed?

If you could check with the local freight carriers and find out what it'd cost to ship to 62801 I'd appreciate it.

I'd be willing to meet in columbia. I must say that I'm leaning towards parting it out. I want to keep some stuff.

Hurry.

A pic of the front. If it's not gone by sunday I'm tearing it apart.

What do you think the motor is worth? Should I sell the motor in parts too? I imagine the complete and virtually new head is worth some good money.
