haha Well I was going to get my dad an SV but After I would buy a naked and try to track prep it, it would creep back up there in price. I found this inline for a good price and its basically track ready as it is. Plus we already have a pretty good SV in the garage him. I want to get an inline to see how much I like it.. Why not have a Twin,Inline 600 and a 1000... muahahaha

EH, NO TITLE...and you want it for street...probably not worth the hassle unless it's a steal. If your intent is for a trackbike, I wouldn't give much more than 2k for it IMO.

Yes Trackbike only. Yeah thats what I was thinking. no more than 2k without a title because you would never be able to turn it.

i want to recall that the shifting was clunkier than most.. even for kawi.. but thats all i remember about the transssions...i could see how in some cases they might have issues with the shift arms due t the clunky shifts

I haven't heard anything like that on kawiforums.com, shift arm can get sloppy after some hard use.

I have noticed on my old zx that with my D&D and K&N, the Keihin carbs get finicky and need to be tuned/jetted correctly.
