I don’t know, but I think I have you trumped on the color thing.....
Looks way better than what they did to this poor thing.
Custom pearl white metallic?
Someone please buy this before that guy tries to mount that plywood up for a smaller windscreen.
When do you say, "it is a light weight adventure bike or a heavy dual sport?"
That depends on what oil it uses and what tires it has on.
I just bought that exact same bike with less than 4000 miles on the clock from a private party for $2K
look around these go for a lot less
Very nice looking Triumph . . .
That is awfully cheap for a 2012 with 2,000 miles.
? I picked up a 2011 last summer for a little less than that with 2500 miles on it. Lovely bikes and cheap to get into. Of course I had to put tires on mine and the CPS went out so That doubled the cost
For some reason they just LOOK like a motorcycle should look to me. They go very nice on the paint also.
Very nice, I agree, they look like a motorcycle should. Very classic. . . retro. . . much like the 60's Bonneville's I lusted over.
Seems fast for carbs to get dirty? May be battery or fuel pump? I have the same issue with my car so would love opinions.
I am looking for a little bike to learn dirt on.
2009 Kawasaki KLX 250 S - $2200 (Aurora)

2009 Kawasaki KLX250S
engine displacement (CC): 250
paint color: green
title status: clean
I've loved having this bike but I'm joining the military in a few months so it has to go. Having some trouble getting it started cold. Fires up fine when it's warm. Will probably need a carb cleaning. I had it cleaned in August and it started up easy every time but then it sat for a while when I was out of town.
FMF aftermarket exhaust, larger 3 gallon gas tank, new battery, oil was changed a couple hundred miles ago, air filter was just cleaned and oiled. I have a new 5qt jug of oil as well as air filter cleaner/oil/grease that I will throw in. 5835 miles. Clean title in hand.
$2200. No test rides without cash in
^^^^Leaving ethanol enhanced gas in it (carbs and tank) could cause it to start hard. If the owner didn't drain the float bowl or run it with fuel off until it runs out of gas, that could be the issue.
Thanks. What about this one. More $ and miles but love these and the resell well.

2010 yamaha wr250r
engine displacement (CC): 249
paint color: blue

Adult owned and maintained. Bike comes with everything you see plus all of my spare parts and tires.
-Bigger fuel tank
-New chain & rear sprocket (13/48)
-FMF header, pipe, fuel controller
-Tail eliminator with turn signals
Could be the oil he is using. Thicker oil makes it harder to start when cold. Had this problem with my KLR. When it got down to 40 or lower, it just wouldn't start. I would drain the battery trying to start that thing. Someone here on ADVRider gave me some advice to switch to a thinner oil weight, and it solved the problem. I tried many things for about three months to figure it out, including cleaning the carb, higher octane fuel, charging battery, etc, etc, and it was just the oil...lol
1981 Honda CB 900 Custom - $2200 (Brighton)
This bike is in excellent original condition. 22703 miles. One ding on tank, and a few small scratches.
Still has the original seat. New Dunlop tires. Runs great. $ 2200
My R1200R. Thought I'd have this for awhile but found a deal on a 2017 so letting this go. Very well sorted including Ohlins, akrapovic, new battery. Listed at $5500, $5200 to inmate.
I'd still go with the KLX. But that's just cause I don't like Yami's.
that's a good looking bike, well sorted - if the Road King sells I'll come check that one out.
Sea foam is your friend if the bike will sit any length of time.
Blake - Come on up.. We will go for a ride! A good friend of my owns this bike. Sounds great with the Akro and runs and handles great too.
