purchased in May 2010 with approximately 4,335 miles on it...coming up on 7,000 now :D
when i first bought it
one of my first rides on it was up to Red Rocks
did great but that damn can was HUGE!
so that was the first thing to go
after some searches, i came across a British company called Beowulf that makes some nice looking and great sounding "silencers". had to go with the flat black :D
much better :D
recent pics i took when i was looking to sell it....
after these shots were taken (and some mechanical issues popped up), i quickly changed my mind :laugh:
while my bike was up for sale, i wanted to get some last licks in before we split ways. so a few buddies and i took a nice early season cruise around the base of the foothills to get some fast turns in to get the blood going.
all was good until we got back to my buddy's place and someone noticed some oil dripping out of the bike :(
turned out to be leaking out of my airbox :eek:
common problem...centrifugal breather failure. the breather sits at the end of the crankshaft where excess pressure gets relieved. the breather spins around with the shaft spinning the oil to the outside of the breather case while allowing the excess pressure to be relieved out through a breather hose back into the airbox. with the breather failing, oil escaped out the breather hose into my airbox...no good!
another fun part about this failure was while we were diagnosing the issue, my fuel line connection busted!....again :embarrassed: another common issue these bikes have. the connection from the tank to the two fuel lines is plastic and prone to breaking. so that was the first repair that needed to be addressed while i waited for my parts from Britain.
so the bike went off the market...
so couple buddies got to have a bike mod day :D
jace threw on a new front fender while my engine got torn apart....
mods for me:
re-gear to 14/45 (-1 +3)
centrifugal breather & seal
cam cover gasket
no more oil leaks!
the cam cover gasket has been a problem since i got the bike almost when i noticed oil leaking out of the top of the motor onto my headers...so while the bike was apart, seemed like a good time to fix that issue!
recently had brought to my attention that i was out a tail light...so i got a whole new taillight :D
smoked integrated LED tail light
pics of it installed will come when i get new pics of the bike after the upcoming mods :D
videos from a halloween stunt ride we went on...i'm the mad hatter with the cheshire cat on the back
upcoming mods will be:
5000k HID kit from DDM tuning - DONE
smoke film over headlight - DONE
ASV shortie levers - DONE
also need to do some cooling system work and adjust my clutch pedal - DONE
Sweet! I'm looking to get a bike for myself this summer!
been using mine a lot more commuting too..saving tons of $$ on fuel
50mpg or so on the bike vs 16-18mpg in the truck...10+ miles each way to work..that adds up
bought mine for $3400 i believe a couple years ago, but immediately had to put a new set of tires on them because they were the original tires from 2002 :eek:
right before i took it back off the market, i had it at $5000, but i had offers at $4500. i was about to sell it until my centrifugal breather went
i'd have it back on the market at $5000 if i were to sell it right now, giving me some room to drop before hitting my bottom line...that's early season prices too..always cheaper at the tail end of the riding season, so if you're looking for a good deal and don't NEED to ride right now, then buy at the end of the summer. Spring and early summer are the price peaks on bikes
bike bandit finally shipped my parts! hope that fixes or help out my cooling issue...
expecting to work on my HIDs on sunday and adjust my clutch pedal...so pics will follow with the new light setup (front and rear) :D
ASV levers should also be here on monday, so next weekend (if i have time) might have another bike day in store
Got the HIDs in today and tinted the headlight. Kit was an easy install even without instructions.
Pics after install and also shows new taillight.
Night shots in my parking spot.
Lows, high and front..
I don't do any stunting, but I have a pretty sweet bike, and would love to ride if you ever come up this way. I rock a 2002 Honda vfr800 interceptor in Italian red.
always down for a ride...would be nice getting a few of the TW members together for a bike meet...there's some nice roads up by you...could do a peak to peak ride and end at a fort collins brewery or end in boulder at a brewery or someplace with grub
i been meaning to get up to lyon again one of these days and take rt 7 up the canyon...
on another note...ASV levers just came in! pumped!
and so happy that i adjusted my clutch pedal down over the weekend..makes a huge difference..much easier coming up gears and downshifting is 1000x better..wish i done that a long time ago!
