:drool

Looks more like a road bike with race glass on it though! :confused

I might ask what else comes with? (PCII, what suspension work, pads/brakes?)

130hp?

:O

I saw this the other week. It's also on a few other sites - I think he has advertised for 7K or something around that mark.

Still a sweet track bike if you can get it for $5K

But it looks like it still has the stock rear shock :dowhat Nothing special about the rotors or brakes either. Can't see the brake lines. ... just noticed there is no steering damper! :dowhat

I've shot the guy an email with a few Qs.

:)

I just got email back from him. His reserve is $5400. Seems reasonable to me - what do you guys think :O

The dude finally got back to me.

Stock front suspension was revalved only.
Not sure of any motor mods. :dowhat
Says it was dynoed in Japan as having 128hp (not 130hp as advertised) but has no supporting documents. :jack

Still has stock rear rotary damper, no steering damper, stock brakes, no PCII. Dude only answered 1/4 of my questions. He's quite vague on the details of the bike. :coocoo I didn't think the Japs would use American ebay decals on such a bike, and I'm sure the Japs would have thrown some suspension and brakes at it if it was indeed a full race bike from a Japanese superbike team. :confused Doesn't add up to me.

I know you shouldn't expect much for $5K, but if its not what he says it is ... :O

I'll keep looking elsewhere.

:D

Oh okay ... so he got the fairings off you locally.

So why is he saying its a racer from the Japanese superbike team. Did it actually come over with race fairings ... or street fairings? :confused

Guess I was right? I think I will steer clear of it.

Just in (the truth comes out):

"It came from nagoya, it was one of their customer`s
bikes who mostly did ridedays and the occasional race at
suzuka. so, no it`s not a full house superbike and is close to
standard - some suspension mods, raceglass, full exhaust
system and them remapped to suit. you`re welcome to come
over and inspect the bike before sale."

:rolleyes
