In case anyone cares, motorcycle-superstore has these in stock again. I figured they'd been discontinued since they've been impossible to find.

That comparison might be okay if you drive something that gets 35+ mpg.

I'm not an expert, but I'd start with the clip on the 2nd lowest position. With the airbox mod and an exhaust, you might even need to jump up to a 142.5 or 145 main jet, but I'd play with the needle...

That looks like a nice bike. It couldn't hurt to try to talk him down. The guy that was selling the 99' to my friend wanted $2700 to begin with, but went down to $2200.
