Was my daily commuter for quite some time, and then eventually relegated to weekend canyon carver and occasional trackday bike. Miles at approx 49k (accurate with use of SpeedoHealer speedometer conversion tool).

Several key upgrades to improve the few complaints the bike had: poor brakes (remedied by a Brembo radial master cylinder) and twitchy throttle (tamed by full engine ECU tune and dyno run by Bazzaz with Bazzaz Z-Fi control unit install and full Yoshimura TRS stainless system-approx 140 RWHP).

Currently has new rear tire, approx 90% front; Dunlop Q3 set in 120/70 and 190/55 (up from 190/50).
BMC air filter
Galfer braided brake lines front/rear
Full system Yoshimura stainless exhaust (stock components included)
Brembo RCS19 radial master cylinder front brake with matching Brembo clutch lever (Stock components included)

Maintenance upkeep obsessively (oil changes, valve adjustments, etc); records to show (with Owner's manual and factory Service Manual); no leaking valve cover.

Thanks.. Any yes, not too much interest. Put it up on Craigslist too, and same thing. Guess everyone prefers financing a new bike over used. In the long run, my sentimental value may be worth more than what I'd receive in a sale. Eventually, I'll just keep it and try to squeeze in a track day. The boys are older, and need less of my time.

Yes, that's Fontana, btw. My closest track and most convenient. I was trying to look the part, because I'm not that fast to be honest!

Yeah Ive had the same problem man. Everyone wants to low ball at 3k or less. Theyre worth more than that, no doubt. I may just keep mine, but I havent ridden it in a while since getting my Tuono.

Fontana is fun. Ive done it twice. Closest track for me, 40 minute drive in the early AM without traffic. Ton of fun. I have the same problem. Great pictures, not very fast. :lol:

Decided I'd lower the price to $3500.. OR, accept a trade for a comparably valued compact/economy car (no rust buckets!) since my eldest son will be driving soon.

Any interest?
