I bought one today. 2009 with 17k miles on it. I got it for $1715, $2000 OTD. Cost to insure, $50 a year. Some bumps and bruises, but that means I get to upgrade smile

Farkles:
Moose Racing Expedition Rack (silver)
Moose Skid Plate
Polisport Handguards
replacement mirrors (unsure of brand)
Metzler Enduro 3 Sahara 90/90-21 front tire
Pirelli Rallycross 120/90-18 rear tire
(one of these is noisy on the pavement at about mid 50s mph)

Projects:
Repaint engine side (big scuff in paint)
Dented muffler heat shield (repair, repaint, replace?)
*Exhaust (Z1 mod or replace with FMF)
*New grips (something cushy)
*Repaint rear rack (probably black)
Replace rear turn signals (both are broken)
*Front sproket (might replace with 16T for better road use)
Clean and repaint header pipe
*Renthal handle bars

*- as time and money allow

Remove rust and touch up scratches on swingarm (remote rust, touchup paint, clearcoat, cover with sticker)

Pictures coming!
