Wonderful motorcycle, though. I wish I had more photos handy.

Bought it for $800, put over 10,000 miles on it, put on $200 of tires and sold it for $1000.
Did they detune them from the FJ600? I always thought it was the exact same engine. I can never find published Radian power figures, but I saw 72 horespower for an FJ600 so I figured it was the same. Mine had a slipping clutch the whole time I owned it so I never felt all the horses anyways

A buddy of mine has a Seca II and I know that those engines are also based on the FJ600/Radian engine, but are detuned way low to 61 horespower. all crank figures btw
