It is worthless unless you plan on making it a trackbike. It has a salvaged title.

If you are getting a 600cc bike, seriously check out the SV. I'll let you hop on mine. It's a great all around bike for street and track and parts are everywhere. The only issue for you is "fit" on the bike like you mentioned the other night. Unless you want a bike right now, maybe wait for a bike night to really sit on other people's bikes... It's hard now unless you are going to go hunting and trying on bikes all over the place.

Actually for a salvaged bike tha is pretty clean. I would consider it light also since all it needs is plastics For a racebike it is perfect. For 4 even would be a decent deal.

It hit something hard enough to bust the front tire bead, so I wouldnt trust the "no front end damage". And with a salvage title it isnt worth that much once it is repaired unless you want to go through all the rebuilder BS.

Save your money and buy my 2006 GSX-R 750 near the end of the season. I'll even take your 250 as a trade in.

I'd give him $2500 and if everything is as he says - perfect. If not, it would still be OK at that price since most parts can be had off of eBay for pretty cheap. It would just take some time and effort.

I'm just saying you could snag an '05ish 600 for far less and the different to you in performance would probably be negligable.
