So...who wants to donate $4,000 to a bikeless dude? This thing is sweet! It's even the same color as my old 2003 SV1K.

man this bike is seriously tempting me. I saw the title and said to myself "it's probably not blue which is the color I'm holding out for" *opens thread* "well crap.....it's blue"

It's a great bike guys. Runs like a champ since the PCV got the fueling sorted. Pulls smoothly from 2500 on up. It's been ridden regularly in the time I've had it. The previous owner didn't ride it much, hence the low mileage. I just recently stumbled into a deal I couldn't pass up on a Ducati Hypermotard and don't have room for both in the garage!

I'd be happy to meet if you'd like to see it up close.

Not sure mine has ever had fueling issues. The PO thought it did but then found out the seals on the carbs were funky and he had mounted a pc5 on it to resolve the "fueling issue". After getting the carb gaskets replaed all I have noticed the pc5 doing is murdering the mpg's. I'm curious what kind of mileage you are getting on yours since you added the pc5? I'm thinking of taking it off mine this weekend while doing a filter check and some other maintenance items.

It gets about 185 miles before the bottom bar an the gas gauge starts flashing. The problems were only below 4000 rpm. It would chug and buck and generally run terribly. Typical lean condition for emissions. Well documented on stromtrooper.

My Ducati is actually worse, but harder to fix. It has a cat and the ecu runs closed cycle art low rpms. Screws up the fueling to the point that under about 3750 rpm in anything other than 1st and 2nd that the bike just shakes and barely accelerates. If you're in 3rd or 4th and roll on at 4000, there's a huge hit of power at 5000 when it switches of the closed cycle running. I'll fix it eventually. Just fat more costly than a PCV.

I wonder if I could sneak this into the garage of the new house we're buying and tell her it came with it. Looks like a great deal, just wrong time for me right now.

I'm looking at getting a travel trailer. More trips with the DR, no extra bikes.

That will be cool ! Lots of good used toy haulers etc.
swing by sometime & you can look at how I manage that...... I wonder if you could put a trailer hitch lift for a mc on the back of a casita to counterweigh the tongue weight ? You can pull a Casita almost anywhere.

Ice actually got a trailer I'm looking at. The plan is to put the bike in the bed of the truck. The trailer is a 21' model that weighs only 3800 empty. Sound work out great.

Someone is going to get a LOT of bike for that price.

I took my 2005 DL1k to 102k miles and it was still running great when I sold it. Through that entire time, it needed one valve adjust, the countershaft seal replaced once, 1 set of clutch plates, and I swapped out the fuel pump for one off of a GSXR just in case when the stock one started to make the littlest bit of a funny noise.

So all things considered, I only had around $300-400 in service related parts over the span of a little over 100k miles. That isn't too bad at all if you ask me! The best part of all, was that I never had to change one light bulb on that bike. It had been crashed, dumped in the dirt quite a few times, ridden some nasty washboard roads all over the place, had both turn signal housings broken and being held together with e-tape, and been ridden through some pretty nasty weather throughout it's life, but still never burned out a bulb.

I would be soooooooo happy if this is still around by the time I sell my M3 or my Vision. I had an 03 DL1L and would love to have this beautiful 04. Maybe I could sneak a Paypal payment by my wife and you could say that you lent it to me.

I'm happy to help divert the flack. I'm trying to move it.
