Stu, I tried to tell the seller of the bike what the problem was over a month ago, he informed me that being a "dealer" he probably knew a lot more than me about the issue, and it was going to need a rebuild, after all it is Italian and has 19k miles on it! After that it sort of became my mission to get someone to buy the "blown up" bike for $2k or less just to prove a point. I bought a $1000 lens for my camera and Christmas gifts for others last week, I am out on spending for a few months now....unless he takes a stupid, brutal low-ball off like 24th-30th December.
I would not have posted it if I actually thought the guy was going to read about it. I waited at least a week or two for the email telling me I was wrong...what the fuck do I know about V990 engines anyway?
Micah...waking up, one 16 ounce red bull at a time.
