Yeah he got an '01 ZR750S. I personally have never seen one till this one but it seems pretty good. He started on a ninja 250 and now this. He paid $2000 for it. Good paint and plastics, needs a front tire, chain, and a carb sync but overall he got a good deal I think. I'll post pics of it when I can and post em up.
On a side note another friend of mine is going into basic training for the US Army the 31st of Oct. so I'll be babysitting his '06 Katana for him. it works for me cause then I can do the performance mods on my bike I want to do and ride his.
I also am replacing the engine on my girlfriend's YZF600R. Lost second gear. I should take pics of that...

So your friend is gonna leave the bike and the key while off to basic huh?? Ive been known to leave one without the other. Does your friend know what the US ARMY tape on the uniform stands for? Yes My Retarded Ass Signed Up.

Wait... your girlfriend's YZF lost second gear so you're replacing the engine? :headscratch

I think Steve would replace all the plastics too.

We got a donor bike for less than it would have cost in parts to fix second gear. So yeah I'm replacing the engine..

It's a lot easier to swap an engine than it is to crack a transmission and repair it too, it just sounds funny.

Well ya. As long as the plastics are off, get new ones.

Finally got my Gf's bike together last night. Carbs need sync'd, suspension raised back up and a few other minor things but so far she rides great.

What did you use to drop and support the engine and put it back in? Just so I know what to get lol. 2 jacks and blocks what I used last time.

To some people its a rocket.
To others it's freedom. (zx9r, zx14)
