Thanks for the fast response towards this transaction, am okay with the final shipper's fee which mean's you don't have to bother yourself on the shipping and immediately you receive the payment you will cash the payment and deduct your item fee and get the shipping cost wired via western union or money gram to the shipper's information that will be sent to you and if you are okay with this terms kindly get back to me with the Name,Address and your contact telephone number so that the payment can be issued out to you as soon as possible..Hope to read from you soon...

Hello. Thanks for your inquiry.

1) I purchased the bike in Jan. of 2007 and intended to use it as a backup race bike. I have all paperwork.
2) Overall it's in very good condition. It has been in a minor lowside (not the current bodywork). The stator cover and frame sliders have some rash. I used the bike after the lowside and it runs great.
3) I have a 2007 that I will be using for the upcoming season, so am selling my bikes from previous seasons.
4) It is in very good condition for a Track or Race bike. Most of the aftermarket components (full exhaust, body work, slipper clutch etc.) only have two race weekends on them. Stock motor has ~7300 mi. on it, a large majority of those being street miles. Motor is still tight and makes good power.
5) Asking $5000 and will include some spares, Takeoffs, front brake pads, stomp grips, sprockets.....
6) Yes I will accept a Cashier Check/Money Order, actually prefer it.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or want pics of anything specific.

Oh how they try. Excellent that you didn't fall for this. However my Uncle in Nigeria just died and his will leaves $50,000 to the first 500 people that respond. Just send you SSN, Bank Account routing number and your $250 registration fee to:

Mbeke Mbaba
1024 Behind The Water Pipes
Nigeria Train Station, Nigeria

Hope to hear from you soon

When selling a motorcycle advertised on-line,

That's my 2 cents.
It's 10 PM. Do YOU know where your brain is?
