    Excellent condition. 14,375 miles.
    Monticello, MN (40 mil WNW of Minneapolis)
    krcarlson8542@gmail.com
    $4000 / obo

    Nearly flawless 5th gen. 14,375 miles.
    I guess I'm a lazy old man... I didn't ride this nearly as much as my Concours.

    Excellent condition
    Runs great
    Paint excellent
    Original seat in excellent condition
    Original seat rear cowl in excellent condition
    Clean title, current registration
    The only flaws I can think of are a chip in the paint on front of the fairing paint, some condensation under the tach cover, and some scrapes on the right side engine cover/fairing.
    Front brake pads are good; rear pads will need to be replaced soon (including pads in sale).

    Features:
    Upgraded replacement regulator/rectifier from wiremybike.com
    VFRness
    Zero Gravity Double Bubble windshield
    Helibars
    Speed bleeders
    K&N air filter
    Tank bra
    Throttle Meister
    Michelin Pilot Road 2 tires @ 12,576 miles (2012)

    Extra Parts:
    Original bars
    Original passenger handles (install these when riding without rear cowl)
    Delkevic muffler (never installed)
    Competition Werkes Fender eliminator kit (never installed)
    Spare brake pads
    Spare fork seals
    Colorite touch-up paint

    Sorry, I created an album, but it doesn't look like it's attached to this post.
    Can anyone tell me if they see the album? I clicked to attached media to the original post, but from my point of view, I don't see how to get to the album from the Classifieds post.

    Anyway, let me know if you can't find the photos; someone already emailed me for a link to the my Shutterfly album. I have about 30 pics trying to show as much detail as possible.

    I'm trying to show as much as I can about the condition. This is a fantastic bike, but also want to be honest about any flaws, since anyone looking on this site is probably not local.

    I have a pic of the instrument panel. Something got under the cover of the tach... I thought condensation, but I guess that would dry eventually. I've never had the bike out in the rain, riding or sitting, so I don't know where this came from. Doesn't really obscure the view though, and hasn't bothered me enough to take all the plastics off and clean it off.

    Also have a pic of the engine case on the right side. The case itself and the fairing just in front of that has scrapes. If I remember right the previous owner ran into something in his garage.

    Another pic shows a chip on the front of the fairing. I think around 1/4 inch wide? I have Colorite matched touch-up paint for this, but never got around to it. (Paint included in sale).

    Someone asked about brake pads, so I'll include here: Front look good to go. Rear look like they will need to be replaced soon. I have replacement pads included with the sale.

    Engine oil last changed in the fall, so not many miles on it. I change every 3000 miles or so. ("Or so" meaning I shoot for an oil change every 3000, but if that isn't convenient, I don't worry about waiting a bit longer since it's synthetic. But I don't think I've ever gone longer than 4000 on any bike with synthetic). I use Rotella T6 15w-40 synthetic. Obviously lots of opinions on oil, but I've never had any problem with the clutch on this or any other bike with the Rotella.

    Any other questions, just ask! Thanks.

    This bike is exactly the sort I bought a couple of years ago. This is the 5th Gen you want. Good luck with the sale. And whoever gets it will be lucky.
