I am interested in your bike, sent you a PM.
Got it, replied.
OK all you cult bike fans - got a pretty nice shape FT500 Ascot here for sale. It belonged to a bud that moved away and has been sitting, so I gave it the once-over:
fixed a turn signal
A good cleaning
rebuilt the rear caliper
replaced the front brake fluid and flushed system
disassembled and cleaned the carby
The bike has 12k miles on it. The rear tire will go a few more K. front is fine. Bike starts and runs strong. It has some sun and tank bag damage on the tank, but overall the bike is clean and in nice shape. It has the two original mirrors as well. I did not detail and spray bomb the crap out of this thing ala ebay special - what you see is what is there. Note there's nothing wrong with the instrument faces - the sun coming through the trees made them look odd in the pic.
I have a signed Colorado title in hand as well. email me at ljahearn at mac dot com for hi res pics or to come see the machine.
Its a bit dated though.. I prefer the 83 ADVmodel
Got a little brother that might be intrested. Located in the Springs. Can you PM me with some contact info?
I have a new Aerostich Darien jacket Large in Hi-Viz. No liner, but I did have ultra suede sewn in the collar. I currently have a 10 year old Roadcrafter that I love, but I cannot fall in love with this one because it's just too big on me. I bought the jacket in March and have about 300 miles on it. No rips, tears, or stains. It's just too damn big. I am 5'10" 180. Now that Aerostich has suit sizing like the Roadcrafters, I am going to get a smaller one. $330 shipped conus. Paypal preferred. I will post pics tonight.
**coat hanger included :)
I will add some pics after work or you can see them in the Fleamarket.
This is a very clean, well maintained dirt bike that would be great for a beginner or vertically challenged or less aggressive rider, and no, it's not street legal. The bike still has good tires, has been ridden maybe a dozen times since I put in a new piston & rings, strong engine and it has nice low gears. Easy to kick over and almost always fires on the first or second kick. I bought it for my wife but she didn't feel comfortable off road and she bought herself a Yamaha scooter instead.
If that's the one I saw last year- it's a solid bike. Hard to go wrong at that price- you can always sell it for about the same.
FS 2003 KTM 625 SXC Lowered 2" and suspension setup for a <200 lb person.
The bike has <2000 miles. And is in good condition. It has an 18L tank and Baha Designs DS kit on it. It is street plated.
I recently bought this bike from Irish1. It was such a nice bike and I could not go wrong. But what is wrong is that I need the full hight and I weigh much more than 200 lbs. I bought the bike to Map routes for WF. But after my recent rides I realize that I can finish my mapping with a regular dirt bike. So instead of investing more in this bike I would just like to move on.
Typical KTM, caught sleeping on the job.
I just read the new FM rules that were posted deep in some other guys thread. Given those rules.
NO my price doesn't include shipping.
And NO I will not accept pay pal. No waite that is a double negative. Does that mean that I will accept Pay Pal. No.
I just listed this on craigs list:
I'm asking 25K for it. It's in Buena Vista. More info here:
I have lots more pics if anyone is interested.
In my best Andy Rooney voice "Did ya ever have so many people tell you that you are acting like a jacka$$?"
Thanks for all the input from everyone. In the true spirit of the collective, many people have filled my PM box with "Don't do it!" messages.
I took this past Sunday afternoon and stripped the bike down. I left the SAS alone, for now. I concentrated on the canister and plumbing removal. I found dead ended hoses, crimped hoses, hoses connected to nothing, etc. All gone, I removed it all. I took the good hoses that were left and rerouted the upper tank vents up to a tee fitting behind the dash. I took the lower overflow vents and ran them behind the frame rails. Then, I put the battery on a charger. It was reading 5.4 volts.
I put the bike back together and waited for the battery to fully charge. Just to be safe, I waited til Monday am to take the battery off the charger. I had Hensley Battery load test it to be sure it was still good. Those guys are great! It checked out good so I put the battery back in and tightened everything up. Bike fired right up. I let it warm til there were 4 bars on the display. I shut it down and went for a bite and a soda.
Hit the button after letting it sit. This is where I had most of my trouble before, the thing would flood after I shut it down, even after canister removal. Bike fired up as soon as I hit the button. No throttle, no choke. Rode the bike to work and again let it sit, this time for a couple hours. Hit the button, fired up. Turned it off and rode it home at the end of the day. Fired right up, but needed just a touch of choke to idle until it warmed up.
Rode the piss out of it last night. Ran through a complete tank(s) of fuel. Lightning chased me inside well after dark. The boy missed wrestling practice. Sorry boy, dad needed a head clearing ride. I would stop, turn it off, restart, just trying to recreate the problems I was having with flooding. Could not recreate it.
Many thanks to those that provided me with the swift kick in the pants that I so richly deserved. I'm still pissed at the dealer, but as you guys always say, "Do it yourself". So for now, she's off the market. I had a couple of people express interest, but no one was ready to pull the trigger right away. I guess that was a blessing in disguise as well.
The point of all this? I promise to quit being such a red a$$ and start figuring this stuff out for myself. Forgive me?
merging this into the flea market...
I recently bought a GS and don't need a couple of things.

I also have a BMW brand cover, this is in new condition with a the original stuff sack. It fits all R1100/1150/1200GS bikes
Check it out here.
My turn I guess. I am turning to dirt this season. Would like to offer this sweet bike to my brothers in the rocky land region first. I am selling my
'98 BMW GS. I haven't even popped the cherry on the bike yet. 20,950 miles, 2nd owner, clear and free title. The goodies are : engine guards, head light guard, big PIAA's, handguards, extra rear brake lights, heated grips, cruise control, givi windshield, center stand metal guard, BMW side cases, the previous owner gave it a canisterectomy. A little scratch on the tank and on the left engine cover. The bike runs great and never had a problem with it. Rear tire is in good shape the front tire needs replacement however I have a new front tire sitting in the garage. Oh the color is yellow not the banana yellow its has kind of a green tint to it. Hence my name (green stainz). I think thats it on the accessories, if I forgot anything I will add it later. Pics will be up later. $6700.00- no paypal, no Nigerian scams, no wankers.
I've got a tank for you. White 5 gal.
