    Very hard to find 2nd gens in this good of condition for sure. Not sure I can ever sell mine.

    What are you asking?

    Agreed. Didn't you try to sell yours?

    I miss my 07 R6S I had, it was fully set up too, same Graves pipe which sounded awesome!! But I had Ohlins on mine.

    @Armyvet7yrs any tuning done on the bike or a power commander for that full system? How about slide-stops? Can you confirm what was done to the front suspension? it looks stock.

    And yes, Asking price??

    I had floated the idea back when I had an opportunity to jump on a ridiculous deal on a 3rd-gen, but it didn't happen.

    Every time I jump on my bike now I'm glad I didn't.....

    Sorry I forgot to include the price in the post. I’m asking 5,000.

    What are your thoughts?

    Thoughts?

    - awesome machine for a track day bike.
    - pink paint and wheels will scare off some buyers
    - "Penske front suspension"? Need more info - whats done to the forks and for what weight rider?
    - Does it have a fuel controller like a Power Commander to account for the Graves system
    - How do you know the motor is "very strong"? What are you basing that on?
    - Asking Price is at least $1000 too high - 14 year old bike afterall.

    Forgive me for not knowing everything about the bike. It's actually my sister's bike that I'm selling for her. I'll do my best to answer what I know.

    The bike was originally built by Mark Built in south NJ. Mark Built stored and maintained the bike at their shop for the previous owner for most of it's life. The front suspension has springs set up for a 180lb rider. There is no power commander on the bike, but the ECU is flashed to accommodate the increase in air flow.

    As for the pink wheels and paint... The wheels were powdercoated by me when I had my powder coating shop. Two tone powdercoating is hard to do, so these wheels are definitely one of a kind. I'm sure you can sell the pink wheels to a street rider for a decent cash return. Someone would love them, especially since they will fit on other R6's. Black R6 wheels are easy to find for relatively cheap.

    The bodywork is also brand new. That can be painted over easily or kept pink so the rider is easy to spot on the track.

    The motor is strong... Good point! That's a subjective statement, but my opinion is based on the fact that WCW has looked over the bike with a fine toothed comb. There's no compression leaks, knocks, ticks or any mechanical issues with the motor. It pulls very strong when accelerating.

    As for the price, there are some other extras that will included with the bike. Extra set of new tires, rearsets, clip ons, sprockets, a Condor wheel chock stand and pitbull stands. The bike is also fully safety wired.

    There's nothing mechanically wrong with the bike that indicates it's a 14 year old bike other than the manufactured date. This bike is in top condition for a track bike.

    FYI @JTRC51

    I reluctantly have to agree that the price is a bit high for a 2nd gen.

    My '08 has 2,700 or so miles, Ohlins suspension (springs and 20mm piston kit out front, 46PRXLS in back), power commander, exhaust, etc. etc. etc. and you could eat off any part of it............lucky to get in the mid 4's at best, unless somebody REALLY needed to have it.

    I’m willing to trade the buyer a pair of ‘07 stock wheels for the pink ones.
