*******SOLD*******2008 Kawasaki KLR650 w/ 688cc Big Bore $3950.00

This is the last one, I promise! I currently have 10 bikes and I need to fund some other projects.

2008 Kawasaki KLR650 *******SOLD*******
- 688cc Big Bore Piston by Eagle Mike (Arias Forged Piston) w/ 1400 miles (properly broke-in, oil changes at 25, 150, 1000 mile intervals)
- 2009 bottom end w/ 4100 miles, 14,000+ miles on bike (still riding it), I bought a complete '09 engine but decided to upgrade to the 688 while it was apart
- Big Gun Exhaust EVO R complete exhaust system
- Happy Trail front and rear crash bars, w/ highway pegs
- Aluminum skid plate
- Progressive Series 465 rear shock
- Heated Grips
- Fork Brace
- Stainless braided front brake hose
- Pro Taper SE ATV bars w/ risers
- Bark Busters
- Properly jetted w/ KLX needle
- 16/43 gears w/ X-ring chain
- Shinko 705 tires, front is very good, rear is good for about 2000 more miles

Starts, runs and rides better than a brand new KLR, the difference in power over a stock KLR is very noticeable. I just got back from a 4 day 1200 mile trip and got 45-49mpg fully loaded (and didn't burn a drop of oil).

Looking for a clean PW80 for Mud Jr. If you know of one sitting around somewhere needing a good torture test, please let me know.

He loves his PW50, but is just too long legged. I'm looking at other options, but I don't know if is upper body strength is there for the small four strokers.

The 50 is up for sale as well if anyone is looking. It is bone stock (uncorked though) other than 2" bar risers I made for it.

That looks to me like the old strip that's just over the highest neighborhood above Golden View Drive. Some folks would say that getting to it might require crossing through some uh, contested stretches of dirt.

Rumor has it anyway.

2005 dr650se $2800

SOLD!!!!

I have an awesome bike for sale. These bikes are super reliable as you all know. They wouldn't still be making them since the early 90's if they weren't. It has 6050 miles on her. It hasn't even reach a 1/4 of its life. On it now is an aftermarket 5 gallon tank but I also have the original. There is a new rear tire with about 350 miles on it.There is a better and different windscreen than shown, much more sporty. the seat is a Seat concepts seat, they are super comfy over the stock. Also, I put on a set of Pro-Taper bars. I have 14T front sprocket that gives it a bit more low end torque for dirt or trail riding. If I do any highway I just slap the 15T on it and get a bit better mileage and smoothness. Other than that it is stock. No engine mods or anything like that. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
Thank You

Ok, decided to sell it for real. 2008 WR250X, 42,xxx miles, once the new chain and sprocket arrive (RK XSO chain, steel superlite sprockets, from Sprocket Center) and get put on I'd ride it anywhere. I purchased it new in January 2010 with 13 miles on it from Fredericktown Yamaha in Frederick, MD. Used it as my daily transportation ever since, commuting to and from work and school every day in all weather. My bike started as a "R" model with a 21" front and 18" rear off road wheels, in July 2011 I converted it to the "X" model supermoto wheels and front brake, all OEM parts. Aftermarket upgrades include:

IMS 3.1 gal fuel tank
Flatlands Racing skid plate and radiator guard
Seat Concepts seat cover and foam
FMF Powercore4 exhaust, Powerbomb header, and Programmer, TwinAir air filter
HotGrips heated hand grips
Moose Racing bark busters
GYTR blue anodized rear disk guard, chain block cover, axle blocks
DRC wide footpegs
DRC blue Silicon cooling hoses
Zeta Racing front brake line clamp and timing plugs
Coax power lead for heated jacket, socks, gloves, etc.
Steel case saver (replaces stock plastic) and luggage rack
Wolfman Enduro tank bag and original Enduro saddle bags

$3000obo
