    I'm sure it's not the battery that's the problem. Clue: " tune-up the carbs"...

    ^Exactly.
    My interpretation of "needs a battery and tune-up the carbs" is:
    "Doesn't run and needs a full rebuild"
    Or maybe "the trans gears are busted"

    Or, it only needs the framistan cleaned, the giznorchi adjusted, and a new power band. And I think the gazintas may have come loose. :lol2

    Set up an appointment and mention you will bring a jump box to start it, then listen to all his excuses...
    "Uh, I won't be home"
    "It won't run until you clean the carbs"
    "I will be washing my hair then"
    "Someone else bought it and I lost my password to delete the listing"

    I keep seeing the term “real head turner” in these ads.

    Is this from people recoiling in disgust and turning a way?

    It's similar to "you won't see another one like it!"

    To which my response is "Good God, I hope not!" :D

    "Unique" or "Rare" are also as equally questionable

    You don't often see a seat mounting system as high-tech as that.

    EXCELLENT CONDITION DUAL SPORT BIKE. 2013 KAWASAKI KLR 650 LOW MILEAGE 9298 MILES HAS MAIN STAND AND HAND GUARDS. RUNS GREAT! PRICED TO SELL!! FUEL INJECTED! GREAT FOR LONG TRIPS OR WEEKEND OFF-ROAD RIDING.

    Behold the fuel injected KLR ... I guess its correct if you consider that the fuel is injected into the cylinder via a carburetor.
