Favorite. Right color with silver rims. But… I’d need to get a stock swing arm. Or would I? I don’t want to sacrifice handling. And how loud is that Brocks 4 into 1? Not interested in a loud exhaust.

Second best. Stock but can’t stand the rims.

Cheapest one. I’d have to do the rims. $6,500. 24,000 miles

So…any idea how much to powder coat rims? And what about mileage? Not really knowledgeable about how long these motors last.

TIA for any input.

PC rims will be about $300-$400 depending on who you go to.

The finish will be twice as nice and durable compared to the OEM finish.

Don’t let a color option be the deal breaker. That is an easy fix.

Yeah, I have no interest in the stretched swing arm. I’d put it back to stock. Why the gen 2 over the gen 1? I was trying to keep the budget below 8k.

Cheapest one. Exhaust is nice and not too loud.

My '07 had almost 80K miles on the motor when it was totalled. The motor was removed, sold and bolted into another bike and the new owner and his mechanic were well aware of the mileage. All I had to do was make a vid of it running before it was unbolted. Properly maintained, one of these engines would surely exceed 100,000 miles and still run well enough.

It wasn't babied, either. I also have vids of before and after replacement of the steering head bearings, which were detented from landing so many wheelies.
