Lemme know if anybody needs a motor. I've got an '04 LC4 with carb, Duke airbox, complete hydraulic clutch mechanism, and complete wiring harness including coil. Runs tiptop, about 4000km of use.

I'm guessing that's an earlier EXC fender, circa 2002 before they made it more "droopy" looking.

Here's a pic of my 950 with cut windscreen and $60 topbox from JC Whitney.

maxi,

You might check with "sakurama", he lives in NYC. He can probably recommend a local shop that can special order what you need and then you can make arrangements for pickup.
