That pipe is a stock muffler that was shortened with a TBR logo crudely applied to it! Score!

The ecu has nothing to do with your mileage. The speedometer gauges have been switched. If this is the bike you want, it is definitely worth spending some change to get it back up to top shape. The 04-05 Gsxr 600's are my favorite!!

+1 on the ECU. I bet that bike was looped and went end over end. Good luck with the rebuild.

I'm a MC noob and have lots to learn. I thought the ecu stored the mileage in memory like some newer cars. Good to know.

Nope. It sucks that a cheap part from Ebay can lead to buying a bike with BS miles. It happens too often.

Well Patrick gave me a call and told me the bad stuff about the bike. Frame is bent at multiple spots and same with the subframe. Another thing that got me was when he told me that I have two different front rotors. One from a busa and the stock gsxr 600. The busa rotor was made to work with q bracket that spaced the stock caliper out from the rotor since it's bigger. I'm out of town for school so I can't come to the shop to check it out with him. Anyhow, I called the guy I bought the bike from---John. I tell him the situation and he says that his mechanic told him that everything was good and there was nOthing wrong with the bike as far as he knows and that it's almost a month since I bought the bike and that a lot of things could've happened to the bike in that time. He said he and his mechanic will meet me up at MOtorcycles unlimited and well discuss the issues with the bike. Will he be a cool dude and offer to refund me, we shall see.

He's also selling this bike. His other friend/roomie/business partner is Andrew.

swap frame and subframe from the project bike to your bike and have clean title '05 GSXR600.

Or just swap your skins and controls to the project bike and again have clean title '05 GSXR600.

The guy took advantage and I think it would be pretty easy to prove with Patrick's repair report and the obvious damage in the pics. Scheister....
