Anybody who wants to sell? rather in SoCal than anywhere else.
What would a carbed 2005 be like there's one around for less than 3 grand?
It's on an ad that I found when I got the sorry news that the 2008 was sold.
Are there jet kits that one can change for high altitude, up in the Andes and if are they difficult to change?
The high plane in the Andes is around 4000 m ie 13-14000 feet and I don't want to be stuck behind truck with 25 hp
I have a 2005.5 950, and while I like the way it feeds the fuel to the engine, If I were buying a bike now, I'd go for a 990S or R.. But I'm an IT guy, so I like to play with digital things, and it's way more easy on the computer, than pulling everything from the bike all the time..

Getting to the jets is a PITA IMO, as you (ofcourse) have to take off the carbs for this procedure, for what you have to strip down the bike.. You can buy and use flexjets for the IDLE circuit though..
