craigslist... again

http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/1711500759.html


"upsized cams and push rods"

"has done 202 mph before"

"the transmission has the 5th and 6th gear one spline bigger for more top end speed"

sounds like a killer deal

Heres the best part

the transmission needs some work I havent taken it to the shop, but 1st and 2nd gear make noises. The price is good.

Theres a Sv650S on CL for 8500!!! I was gonna post that one up yesterday but got lazy Its got some suspension work and hard saddle bags but still aint worth that much...that guy needs to realize theres a limit to what you get back on your return of upgrades

Hey that's not a bad price for a 200+mph bike with upsized deckers!

I was wondering the same thing, maybe that's the motor work that cost him$5000. But hey, it must be a slammin deal since it "only has 28k miles" on it.

When you increase the size of the deckers, it increases the oxidation level of the chain. Any decker to displacement ratio greater then 1.7:1 creates an excessive positive charge on the rear wheel assembly. The greater mass of metal comprising the frame and engine takes a negative charge naturally, but the abnormally high decker ratio compounds this. Chain wax is notorious for becoming an effective electrolyte when it encounters excess hydrocarbons (frequently generated by "programmed" Power Commanders as opposed to the unprogrammed ones). The electrolysis that occurs causes rapid oxidation and pitting of the chain.

Don't even get me started on the push rods... this thing probably has a turbo encabulator on it too.
