Make sure you zoom in on the image and have a good look around.
The patch of water under the bike is from where I cleaned it.
This bike's history:
Walkaround YouTube Video:
The bike suits a taller rider, but the pegs are quite high.
So the riding position is leaned quite far forward.
That said, my 5"4 partner can ride it comfortably (bit tall though!)
Back of the bike.
Lot of reflection. The paint is still good.
There is a bit of scratching on the top of the tank which I forgot to photograph.
Front of the bike.
Headlight assembly, fork ears and back of dash cluster. All sweet, nothing of concern :)
Please note. It's a reflection of the concrete, NOT scratching!
Two pot front disc brake.
Works very well, slight bit of surface rust from lack of use and patch on the bottom of the disc is a wet spot from cleaning.
Inspector at the WOF station had no concerns when asked.
Front tire, Michelin.
Lots of tread left.
Excuse the dirt on the tire, it's only dust etc.
Front tire again, still lots of tread.
Speedo, Tacho and temp guage.
Top speed according to videos on YouTube is about 175kph.
Grips are all good and the controls are tight and responsive.
Aftermarket Adjustable JDM Daytona clipons.
Comfortable and gives great road feeling and response.
Throttle responsive and switches work nice and tight.
Close up picture of the Daytona clipons.
Another close up of the clipons.
Yet another, geez.
More dash shots.
[Left turn] [Speed (?)] [OIL] [High Beams] [Neutral] [Right turn]
I have absolutely no idea what the "Speed" light does, or why it's there.
Twin aftermarket horns that are VERY loud.
Gave the WOF inspector a bit of a fright!
V-Twin engine, bit of peeling paint and oxidization here and there.
No oil leaks or anything nasty that I can find.
Adjustable brake lever, good for tall riders like me (6ft).
Bit of staining on the rear swingarm from the battery overflow.
Bit of a shame really, but it's only aesthetic.
Also, a bit of pitting on the finish of the aftermarket JDM Foresight exhaust.
Japanese Domestic Market exhaust unit. I've never seen one like this, it definitely grows on you :).
"Foresight Exhaust System"
Another shot showing the underside of the exhaust and swingarm.
Again, a bit of surface pitting ect but only cosmetic.
Tip of the exhaust is a bit pitted.
Seems the metal doesn't like the high temperatures.
Cosmetic only, still thick metal so all good.
Brand new 6 month WOF.
All stickers and bodywork are straight and original.
(err, excluding a few scratches on the top of the tank).
It's practically a classic!
Very small tear in the seat.
Bit of a shame but not very noticeable.
There's a scuff in the middle.
To the right-middle of shot is a scratch that has been touched up in a pretty average fashion.
Neither are not particularly noticeable.
Gas cap all clean and original.
Rear tire has even more tread.
No worries here, still has the chicken strips!
Rargh, check the strength.
But yea, it's got a lot of tread.
Check the chicken strips, it's had an easy life.
More oxidization on the exhaust.
A metal brush/file and some VHT paint and it would be good as new!
Very good paint on the plastic fairings and the stickers are all in good nick.
Ouch, went a bit overboard with the chain lube and it went EVERYWHERE.
I'll clean it all off before any viewing though.
So, the chain is all good at least :).
Registration still good.
Oh, there looks to be a crack in the fairing there now that I look at it.
Notice the rubbing on the blue heel guard on the plastics.
Gear selector and peg. All good.
Notice again the rubbing on the plastics.
Bit of paint peeling on the engine case here.
Nothing to worry about but if you're really keen you could get some black VHT and spruce it up.
Looks like I put a bit of polish on the gearbox case and forgot to polish it off :|
Bit of paint peeling here.
A bit of surface pitting in the background.
More paint peeling, a pretty easy "restoration" job.
