I had called the guy about this bike.
He said he tore the carb apart twice and cleaned it.
Not sure if he knew what he was doing or not.
Just want you guys to know should you decide to go get it.

It's a 2-stroke.

Unless it really needs a bottom end, it probably won't be _that_ pricey. Even if you have to replate the cylinder.

Usually if cylinder is dead you need also piston, rings, crankshaft, main bearings ... and most likely clutch.

How about not bringing it in to the house and just leaving it in the garage? Say it followed you home or something ;)

Worth the $4500?

2005 CRF450X with NJ title and a bunch of tires. Sounds very tempting as long as the lovely ladies behind the counter of the DMV are asleep when you register it.

Tdm 850 nyc

I am sort of computer illiterate so I don't know how to get the ad in here, but there is a low mileage Yamaha TDM 850 in Manhattan Craigslist at a good price. Hopefully someone will buy it or it might be my Christmas present for myself.
