4250 with trailer = a good buy.

You could part of a lot of the goodies for 2K or more, and still have a great stock-ish track bike and trailer for 2grand.

Obviously the upgrades are great for the track, but if money is what you're worried about, and you arent competitively racing- the akra and pc3 arent going to give you a 33% increase in performance- and selling them you give you a 33% decrease in cost.

Yessir! And if you were to try and put that bike together from a street bike, you'd easily spend $3k+ trying. $4k is fair. $3500 would be stellar. With spares and trailer for $4250 it's a well priced package. But....it's in Tulsa.

FWIW, I paid, I think, $3500 for my 2007 CMRA race ready gsxr 600 from a friend, and $2800 for the other 2007 gsxr 600. Neither had any suspension work, which cost $1500 minimum. Both, clear title.

If you want to buy it and defer some cost, I'll buy some of the bits and pieces off you.

I'm going to look at it Friday. Going to run it up to operating temps and make sure all is well. I'm not super scared of the cost, more afraid of trying to sell it down he road. But like y'all said, I could offset any potential losses by selling he goodies. Also it's a BoS bike only. I don't see an issue with his for my track application. Just limits resale potential.

Edit: i moved to Tulsa. Tulsa Cl is barren compared to Houston!!!!
