Runs great little more plastic damage than advertised but very minor
Only thing significant is headlamp cover/lens is warped from heat but still functions fine

Plastics should be easily repairable and most of rock chip damage was to the stickers on the fairings from being ridden off road without damaging paint.

Wish I could get deals like this...

But congrats on the purchase, when you sell it, I might have to pick it up from you for the GF to ride on.

Nobody bother calling this guy

He's irritated that everyone is asking him if he has TRIED a new battery.. or if it tries to turn over. I hung up on him... but then I realized 07 is carbed anyway

Great bike!

Runs perfect (as expected from an 09 1k mile kawi).
Tops out at indicated 100 mph about 1.8grand from redline in 6th gear with 210 lbs rider+equipment. Was very impressed. Probably true speed ~90 mph.
The plastic damage is fairly inconsequential except for the right upper fairing which should be repairable.
Looks like the "melted/warped" headlamp cover is due to leaving the high beam on while not riding for an extended period of time. It kicks off a lot of heat and I imagine without the air cooling it that is the cause.

The riding position is amazingly comfortable, I put ~150 miles on it today, and I felt great when I got off. The gas mileage also amazing (as expected) I got over 80 mpg on the way home. (filled up before I left, 150 miles later it took 1.8 gallons)

The acceleration is pretty abyssmal from a start (as expected), however, once ~30 mph or higher its much peppier, to the point of impressive for a 250. I am sure my weight impacts this a lot.

mmm after much thought, I think I still want a 600 to track so I'm going to resale this (though not for 2000$ since we all know its worth more).
