  1. WTB: Trashed CBR1100XX

    PM to you
  2. FS: 1997 CBR1100XX

    It can be nasty here as well. But the savage glee in getting the new ride home overcomes the pain and suffering of bone-deep hypothermia and permanent nerve damage.
  3. FS: 1997 CBR1100XX

    Well he should BE interested. You could ride it home from Florida!
  4. WTB: Trashed CBR1100XX

    Sorry, guys. I was kinda thinking in the $500-$750 range, but flexible depending on what all was there. Don't need it, just thought I'd see what was out there.
  5. Wanted to buy. I'm not sure why, because I certainly have all the parts that I need to pull something like this together two, perhaps three times over. Maybe because its easier to start with a roller. Anyway, if you have or know of a trashed, neglected, salvage or otherwise cheap XX, I'm interested. I have two projects I'd like to fool with this coming year and am just looking to see what's out there. I don't care if it has bodywork or not, and doesn't have to run, but I would like a usable engine. I'm not above paying to ship the right item, and also will be traveling from PA to northern FL this March. Thanks for reading. Should a non-member read this ad through a search or referral, I can also be reached as ixxion97 at a place that starts with the letter between x and z.
  6. Financing RacerXX! I have set of Corbin Beetle Bags that will fit any year CBR1100XX, but the color is RED to match the candy glory red of the US spec 2001 model. These are very intact and have light scratches and scrapes that are very consistent with normal use. I have not attempted to touch up the small areas of paint that might be chipped, nor have I attempted to buff out any scratches or scrapes. I believe about half the marks would be almost indistinguishable with a good clean and wax. There is no crash damage nor repaired areas that I can discern. The interior flocking has a couple areas that need a bit of glue near the edges, the gaskets are in good shape, and the mounting hardware is included as well as the keys. $550 does NOT include shipping from Pennsylvania, BUT I can deliver near major highways between Pennsylvania and the northern Florida border on my way to or from RACERXX in early March. Bear in mind that shipping on these would be pricey, as they are large and fragile from a shipping/trucking standpoint, requiring extra padding and care with packing. I have more pictures available. Thanks for reading.

    Ahhh, Ben. Dig out your old registration. It's number 185, built in July of 1996.
  8. FS: 1997 CBR1100XX

    Thanks for the info, Ben. This is a bike I'd like to keep in the stable, but the stable seems to keep shrinking. Its one of the lowest serial numbers I've seen. It would certainly be a great keeper for someone.
  9. Time to free up some funds. For sale is an early production 1997 model year XX fuilt in 1996. Its in very good condition for its age, with light signs of use consistent with 22 years and 25,000 miles. Light modifications that include mirror extenders, VFR bars, heavy bar end weights, HID lights, upgraded horn, clear front turn signals, rear rack, and euro right-hand switch. The only alteration that can't be undone is the bobbed under fender and turn signal upgrade, which is nicely done and retains the original key lock for the seat latch. The only notable damage is a crack from the middle bolt hole to the edge of the rear cowl. Stock mufflers will be included in the sale. $2500 puts this nice runner in your hands. I need to finance my trip to RacerXX this year. Bike is located in northern Pennsylvana. Delivery to a convenient point between Pennsylvania and the northern Florida border is possible. Thanks for reading.

    I should have some. I'll look when it unfreezes.
  11. Engine/chassis noise diagnostic tool

    Like actually hearing your bike when riding without a helmet. This sounds pretty interesting. I'm in for one.
  12. FS: Parting Out a 2000 CBR1100XX

    That's a negative. Do you need the entire mirror pod, or just parts? I have some other pieces around here.
  13. 1985 Kawi GPZ550 crossthreaded oil filter

    I wondered if it was cross-threaded but hadn't been completely ham-handed in (because it was loose enough to leak) if the damaged threads couldn't just be ground out of existance and the deeper threads used to connect. The mounting hole is capped because its the feed from the oil pump, so you can't make more threads. Even with that, you're into engine pullin' and maybe case strippin' territory.

    Bill's right. Unless you've already investigated, all the info you have is from the guy that did it the wrong way. You need to verify the problem.
