Picked up this bike from a friend of mine for 1700 with the replacement upper tripple tree and ignition. He bought for a bike to just stunt with but he ended up needing money so i snagged it. He said it ran but ran real rough. So when i got it home i tried to run it but would barely run. I determined the battery was pooched so bought a new one. With new battery in it would fire up but die after a few seconds. So onto the forum i go, with some research figure out its the tipover sensor so i bypassed it with a resistor and it ran like a top! So i've been picking up parts wherever i could and its starting to look like a bike! Cant wait till next summer!!
Nice deal man. You will want to fix that tip over switch or replace it if you want to ride at the track or street the bike. Lowsiding the bike will cause the engine to starve itself of oil and lead to seize up your engine in seconds
