Pics...



Harris Performance adjustable rearsets



M4 & hanger in carbon, spools



07 R6 forks and fender (hi & low spd comp adj)...around 2 thousand miles total on "brand new" forks.



Left side--decals as from factory



Rt side--I removed the white check shaped decal on the mid fairing.
Gonna do the left also, just havn't got around to it yet (4 hrs).



Corbin seat is nice flat & slick, with an excellent tight roll down the sides of the tank. A great upgrade when it comes to climbing all over it imo.









Price : $6000 cash obo WITH all the extras.....no trades please, unless you have an 88 RX-7 AE.

Bike is located in Austell, Ga. (25 minutes from the center of downtown Atlanta)
If interested, call Tom @--- --- ----
Thanks !!


Gotta add this note ..........Bike is only for sale as long as the car I'm trying to buy is "still" for sale.
If the car sells before my bike, I'll be pulling the R6 off the market.
So if your interested, please contact me soon.

How do you like that Corbin seat? Does it actually drop the seat height an inch?

Thats one clean looking '05!

Dark, love the Corbin. It does drop the seat height but I never actually measured by how much.The shape and slickness are what I like the best about it.
Thanks for the compliment !!

Daredevil, the fork swap is as simple as slideing out the 05's and slideing in the 07's.
I swapped for several reasons : 1-"new" forks, 2-better adjustability, 3- gold adds 5hp

why woudln't you just revalve the front forks, or does gold do that much for yoU>

looks awesome, just figuring what would do me better. buy new forks, or get a revalve job done.

5 HP BABY !!

No, really, I like the availibility of the seperate high speed & low speed compression damping adjustability that the 06-07's offer. And yes, I actually do like the gold anodizing that matches the rearsets. Red gold and black work well together for me. I also like the knife edge shape of the newer front fenders over the 03-05 fender. I still have all the factory parts in excellent condition should the buyer chose to put it back to stock and sell the rest.

I hope this answers your questions as to why I did what I did.
If it doesn't make sence to you, I have no problem with that. :YEA

Nice looking bike. I have to say that the gold really does help. Nice touch.
Free bump for you (though I don't think you need it as it's already near the top). :D

Emails sent out to you guys inquireing about the "extra" stock forks.

To others, I'm not separateing the package deal unless the buyer wants to bargain the price down via foregoing forks and/or other spares.

Thanks
Tom

Lynch, that sounds like an awsome RX !!

Sure would like to see some pics.

But alas, I allready have a modded red 88 vert that I was secretly planning to give my son. But he has his heart set on an 10AE.
I have located 1 that fits our bill, but have to sell the R6 first.

Are you interested in a trade for the R6 ?
If so........
Vert wheels?
I'm assuming it's red with grey interior.
Any body dents ?
Interior condition ?
AC & heat work ?
All electrics work ?

Your location ?----South FW ? (Fort Worth Texas......Fort Walton Fla.....?)
