I have it geared for comfortable highway speeds because I was planning on making it street legal. Still pulls good in every gear.
Comes with complete dirt setup, plastic fork guards, OEM Excel Wheels, extra o-ring chain, Sunstar front and rear sprockets (14/49)
Transmission rebuilt. I don’t have any paperwork or receipts for the engine work but it hasn't given me any problems since I've had it. I’ve owned it since May of 2017. I've changed the oil with Mobil 1 full synthetic every few rides. Oil filter was always changed as well.

Now for the unfinished part:

The push button-start does not work. I was troubleshooting and bought a new battery and solenoid trying to track down the problem and I gave up. For the extra $160 I threw at it I’d rather just kick start it.

The bike isn't currently street legal.

Could use a new owner. I’ve babied this thing since I’ve had it, hasn’t even seen dirt since the previous owner. She’s been a pavement queen, heated garage stored. For the amount of times I drive it in the summer, it really isn’t worth me holding on to. I can provide receipts for all of the new stuff I’ve mentioned if needed. Everything works as it should other than the push-button start. Clean Michigan title, she’s ready to go. Come check it out, no test drives without cash in my hand.

$4000 OBO
