Picked it up this morning. dropped it off at storage, I havnt even road it yet its too dang cold 35F :thumbdown and wont ride it till its nice and warm out. My buddy test drove it for me to make sure everything is ok. He said its got balls, more than his brothers 05 cbr600. It sounds DANG good with the full exhaust.








The damage:


Needs a headlight and cowl. The lower fairing was cracked and I wasnt first informed of that and I made him knock off another $100. :swordfigh

Gonna do a complete service and adjust everything this spring and fix the stuff. :YEA

Sweet bike. First things first- get some frame sliders. I say that and i havent done that yet on mine. But if this is your first bike, and even if it isn't- one should always be prepared. Second- are you going to try to take off those ugly decals? Decals are uggggly IMO. Thrid... welcome to the cult.

I bought it off a 35 y/o that is a atv rider sponsord by yamaha. He bought it off a 23? year old that put the stickers on it, and never removed them. Hopefully they come off easily.

When I bought my bike, it had two "yamalube" stickers on it that were less than appealling to me, so I did the following:

1.) Bring the bike either into your garage or as close to an outlet as possible.
2.) Steal your g/f or wife's hair dryer
3.) Use the hairdryer to heat up the sticker evenly for about a minute or so...don't concentrate the heat in just one area for too long.
4.) Peel up a corner and continue to use the hairdryer on the attached parts of the sticker as you slowly but firmly pull it away from the bodywork.

Mine came off without leaving any sort of residue, if you're patient and take your time I'd think you should probably have the same results. Much better than trying to use some adhesive remover that could damage the paint. Hope that helps!
