I'm betting all those watchers just want to see if anyone bids. I like the W800, but for that price I'd get a used Bonnie and use the savings for upgrades.

For that price I'd buy two pristine W650's, put them away, and call myself good forever.

Small update on my W - Dropped it off two weeks ago, engine is in bits, head is being ported and flowed, cam is being redesigned, cylinders bored out, power commander is here.

Waiting on a few bits for the rebuild, have to ring the exhaust mob tomorrow.
A slightly sick W800 puts out 35HP at the rear wheel, for anybody interested. Sick being a bad oil type for the engine and the ring gaps not set at the "propper" angles.

What sort of RWBHP figure you aiming at. Also be interesting to see what the Power Commander does for the motor.

50 or 60 RWHP would be nice. The piston kit alone ups the BHP to 60, or so the makers say. The boost in torque should be... fun

W800 Back on eBay

Well the W800 from last month is back on eBay. I emailed him some questions about titling and how he got it done in the US and how he got it here. No reply. Darn it too doddgy for me.
