Sweeeeeet!!!   Just make sure you are good at standing up for long distances as the seats on those are brutal! But then again, so is the power!!!  :21

I have an 07 zx6r which is my main bike, but I have wanted a supermoto since first time I rode one this past spring...thing will be nice as I live in one of the popular routes in Louisville to go out and just haul on...two gsxrs went past early so I jumped on and caught up to them...then passed them...waited down the road and about 10 minutes later they came up and talked...couldn't believe how fast and nimble this thing was

Race motards are a lot of fun, you should get that thing to little tally if you have the chance.

I'm going to be selling my 2005 CRF450R motard as soon as I have time to clean it up and do one last valve check.  Great bike but I need the funds for other projects right now so if anyone knows someone looking let me know.

I was going to toss it up on Craigslist for $4000 and see what offers I get, looking to get 3500 or so.  Once it's clean I'll be putting up a post and include all the goodies it has...suspension, brakes, wheels/hubs, new electronics, etc.

Honestly I don't have an exact number, bought a hour meter but never put it on.  It's been to the track (little tally) twice, the gap once and some riding on the street.  I bought it with 7 according to the previous owner (Ben Steinberg), would guess I have put on maybe another 10 guessing very high.  Oil and valves before every track day, another oil change after.

I assume the oil was changed every 500 miles, and valves checked every 3000?  And I honestly wouldnt expect 3500..closer to 3000 as a selling price the economy is sucking and the high maintenance on supermotos scare a lot of buyers away..until they realize how easy the maintenance is.

Oil and valves were done earlier than needed, well under 500/3k.  For how little time it takes I didn't mind doing it often.  On the price I don't expect 3500 but that doesn't mean I'm not going to toss it on craigslist for that or more and see if I get any bites. 

At this point while a lot of fun to ride I do too many stupid things on it and I'd rather have the money for other projects.

I agree these bikes bring out the squid inside lol

the maintenance is easy, but can be a daunting task for people who like to just ride and ride, I know a buddy Sid has a Husky and thing blows up every time he rides it and he changes the oil and checks valves after every single ride lol

They don't make a nice exhaust for the 2002 WR426f and I bought a Two Brothers exhaust for a 2005 DRZ SM, took it to a welder and had it fitted up...the one of a kind Two Brothers exhaust for a WR426f
