Hey dude...thats a 98-01 frame! And from the looks of the rear sets im going for either 00 or 01. It looks like all he did was put 02 bodywork on it. (minus the fork, thats 02-03)

rather than rolling the miles back, you can easily buy another speedo for about 100 bucks

if a deal is too good to be true..... you know the rest




my first comment was before you posted the pics by the way,


that IS a 2002 frame though, he just had it chromed

My bet is SCAM!!! Either that, or it has been a seriously ****ed up bike with a salvage title...

"um i dont really know much about bikes just got into it..."

My advice is to pass on any R1 and get yourself a begginger's bike so that you can learn to survive out there.

Man, I wouldn't touch that for all the tea in China. I don't like the
smell of that deal. Tires are mismatched for one thing. He's got
the Dunlop 208 in the front and some sort of sport tourer on the
rear. Not that that's a bad sign, but most of us know better than
to do something like that. The whole deal stinks to me. Stay
away from it IMO.

Yeah, that's just like those damn scams they try to run on ebay, where you send them a down payment via escrow and they ship the bike to you for free!! :2bitchsla I know they probably sucker a few buyers, but I try to pass the word to everyone with less than average common sense that it's "too good to be true"! :rant Also watch out for buyers from Indonesia. They get hold of credit cards and try to buy stuff over the internet via paypal. By the time paypal catches the fraudulent credit card you may have already shipped out the item......sounds like I'm speakin from experience!! :mad: I was able to get the product back before it was shipped out! Okay nuff rambling on!! Let's ride!! OBTW, did ya see the R6 represent in WSS!! Go Yamaha! :fork
