Ok.. Got this bike for parts to replace the engine in the one I bought a couple of weeks ago.
All I need is the engine so, the rest can be sold for parts.
The bike is in great cosmetic condition.
It came from an insurance auction with its respective paperwork

It was an accident
Small dent in the front/right side of fuel tank and messed up exhaust system and right side engine guard & right turn signals .
The engine guard saved the bike from anything else.

If you want to get an idea what the parts on that bike are worth, goto bikebandit and look up the OEM replacement prices for things like the carbs (over $1000), the rear shaft drive / splines / differential hub (well over $500) the fuel pump, the gas tank (with dent and speedo), ECM, the wheels...

If you have the time and space you could part that bike out and get more than you paid for it = free engine.

Thanks KCW
Yes, I’m planning to figure it out and take it apart to sell the parts
Unfortunately I had a knee surgery yesterday so I’ll have to wait 4 weeks before I can wrench this thing ... I might be able to do it before that but have to wait and see.
I’m planning to sell the parts at a fair price so it’s hell of a good for the buyer but it’s paying for my time to take it apart and drive to UPS :)
