Summary:

Super bike for the size, with plenty of power

Faults:

Previous owner dropped it and scraped it up on the right side. They also broke the front headlight mount; still looking for that since they no longer carry it through the factory.

General Comments:

I found the bike at a used car dealer locally. I took it home had to have the tank boiled out at a local radiator shop, then had the carbs worked on since the bike had sat for sometime.

After running the bike for a couple of weeks, I had to take it back in so they could rework the carbs, because the float was sticking. Been running like a top since.
