Great bikes. I loved mine for the nearly four years that I owned it. I had a ton of fun on it. The horn is probably a fuse, and like it was stated before you probably have a bad speedo wire or...

Don't do it!!!!! It's not worth the trouble, and the estimate the guy is giving you is way low.

If you are going to buy a salvage bike that is still damaged you need to take the NADA value of a...

A 250 might not be a bad idea for you. The seat height on a 250 is really low too, so that will help you with getting comforable on a bike.

Think about it this way, if you get a 250 and decide...

I didn't think I would ever own a GSXR either, but I couldn't pass up the 06 I found for $5,500. They are incredible machines, and I think I freak people out when they see me in gear on a GSXR too. ...

Just an fyi, it is a major repair. Don't let the $300-$600 diy price tag fool you. You're looking at dropping the engine, splitting the cases, replacing quite a few transmission parts, getting...

I don't know if you bought it already, but make sure you are getting a good deal. Call around to some other Yamaha dealerships and see what they are selling the 08s and 09s for. Since your dealer...

I'm glad I didn't buy one because it was about 2 months before they closed the doors. I could have probably gotten an 09 for around $10,500, or an 08 for about $7,500. I would have been so pissed...

Sounds like you've got a plan, and I'm sure you'll find something for well under the $10k that you've saved up. I would say that if you are looking for something that is 3-4 model years old you...

If you have $10k you can easily get a ZX12, ZX14, or a Busa. Any of these bikes will be a huge step up from your ZX9. The newer 600cc bikes make about the same power as your 9r and they weigh less....

I just bought the Sheoi Silver/Black/White X-Eleven Kagayama 2 TC-5 for $400. The X12 is cool, but it was another $300, and I couldn't justify that.

I haven't seen the ad that used to be on here for full fairing sets in a while, and I was talking to a guy this weekend that needs a set. Can anyone tell me who that was, and give me a link? Thanks!
