Time to free up some funds.

Funds freed.  

For sale was an early production 1997 model year XX built in July of 1996. Its in very good condition for its age, with light signs of use consistent with 22 years and 25,000 miles.


$2500 puts this nice runner in some elses hands.  Thanks for reading.

That's a smokin' price for a nice, low-mile XX.

God, I need another bird.

This is my old Bird, that I traded to Joe for his two KLR650's.

 

The rear rack is an SW-Motech quick disconnect rack, so you can easily remove the GIVI mount and have it still look sick.

 

The bar end weights are Manic Salamander ends, and they are super heavy.

 

I wired the right side Euro switch for three settings:

*All lights on

* All lights OFF (stealth mode. You know you're in it because the dashboard lights are out, too)

*Just headlight off. I did this so that I could start the bike without the HID turning on and then off during start.

 

The horn is a Stebel Nautilus.

 

I assume the tank is still in pristine condition.. I had it under a Bagster cover for it's life with me, so it was completely protected. I purchased the bike in 2005, and she was in my stable until fall of 16, when Joe adopted her!

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.

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.

My friend is Bird shopping, I'll let him know.  What exhaust did it have and was it re-jetted for it?

I'm not sure if it was rejetted... I can tell you that with the TBR Shotgun exhaust there was zero decel popping.

I have to have him check the bank about loans.

 

I tried this morning. Bankers don't appear to have Saturday hours.
