Looks clean and bone stock. Get Aftermarket Can, a PC and custom MAP and you'll be gtg to start out. In the long run not sure what u want to do with it track days, race, or just everyday around town huslter? That answer will determine what else you might want to put on the bike.

As long as he's not FIRM on the price, go for it. Make an offer. It's a clean slate. You can make it yours and mod it however you want. That's how I bought my Gen1 back in 2008.

Plus, it's an 05, so your already off to a good start, NO GENERATOR ISSUES!

Or you can buy JustBlaze21's Magma Red 05.....decisions, decisions

After looking closer at the pics for the left side, it's been down. The lever is scratched and looks to have been bent back in place. The left side tail section has a small scratch on it as well. Finally the bar end is scratched up.

Not a big deal. Get the stock links and get her back up. Maybe the seller still has them.
