Hello all,

A question for the group; would you buy a decked out (full akrapovic system) no tuner installed, low mile XR with 2500 miles, with a a rear tire that looks like it was scrubbed pretty good, and still has 6 months of factory warranty Or pass thinking it was abused ?

Yes, if that was the only abuse. 160 HP will do that.
Any signs of it being laid down? If not and everything else checked, the price was right, I'd hit it,,
If you smile when the light goes on in the garage, you made the right choice.
The first motorcycle race happened right after the second one was made.

At 2500 miles the tyre would be near its end of life anyway. A bit of spirited riding is what the XR is built for..... :001:

Thanks in advance,

It’s a yes from me as well not only a saving with buying/fitting the Akra system but with either a PC or RapidBike to can get the fuelling right to take the bike to another level.

The only problem I see with you not having ridden the bike in stock trim you will not really get to appreciate the difference that the headers and can with a good fuel map can make they transformed my X/R from a good bike to something special.
