After much consideration, I've decided to part out a 2000 XX in my possession. Very sad, because a variety of circumstances make this the most viable option. They also serve, who only sit and relinquish parts.
This is a 2000 CBR1100XX in excellent original condition with only 11,000 miles, with exceptions that I'll note. If you're just interested in parts and not the story, drop down to the asterisks *****.
Let's start off with this --- it is a salvage title, which is the crux of the entire situation. There's no evidence of any crash damage whatsoever. The engine, however, was found to have rusted internals and muddy sludge for oil. At first, one would think it was a flood bike, but I'm experienced with that, and there's no evidence of flood dirt on the bike. The only way this bike could have been under water is if someone rode it into a swimming pool. I'm much more willing to believe the engine was vandalized, and water was poured into it.
The bike passed through two owners on its way to me, neither willing to believe the bike didn't just have something simple wrong with it. I spent some time with it before doing a compression check and pulling the motor, after which I found the sad condition of the internals.
Even were I to fix or replace the engine, it still carries a New York State salvage title. Because NY is so messed up, I would have to have a NY state salvage inspection performed, then a Pennsylvania state salvage inspection before I could get a reconstructed title in PA. That's about $800 right there, plus a metric shit tonne of aggravation.
So its being parted out.
As the bike passed through salvage auction, two owners, and various repair garages, it unfortunately incurred unnecessary damage and missing parts. So let me just list what's damaged or not there.
***** 2000 CBR1100XX for parts. Titanium bodywork, 11000 miles
*Engine is removed and disassembled. There is rust on various parts. Any engine part should be considered to have been exposed to water and sat. However, many parts should still be good if you've broken something inside your engine.
*Upper cowl has a broken area on the right in the curve where it joins the dash. Otherwise, in great condition. Very unfortunate.
*Right lower cowl has a broken area near the top by the mounting boss. Scratches on the side. Again, very unfortunate.
Those that have done business with me know that my prices for used parts are generally quite reasonable. While I still intend to be reasonable, the parts I am offering are pretty much in pristine condition, and prices will reflect that.
If you need something, post up or send me a PM/email. A few pictures to follow.
