Ah, shoot, I actually didn't take any pics of it and now I'm away from home on break. When I get back on Monday I'll take them, but for now you'll have to use your imagination: from the left she looks like a drop-dead gorgeous silver '06 model, and pretty much the same from the right but with holes ground through her right fairing and right engine covers, a flattened (streamlined?) tank, and a couple rouge bits hanging off the right clip-on. Also the brake pedal vaporized (can't believe that's a $90 part! what a rip!). She's also got a two bro's slip on, a power commander, a couple oval stomp pads on the tank, a tail eliminator kit, just the standard stuff.
Gauging from the interest on here, it sounds like spending the $500 or so to at least get her running again would be worthwhile. I figure no one would buy a bike they can't try out anyway, and parting it seems like a huge gamble. Will heed the not-a-beginner-bike advice (thanks for the warning), and will advertise it as a potentially naked girl or track bike. Now my question is, with endearing features like a charging system that only works sometimes despite having a new battery and the r/r recall performed, a temp sensor that reads *just* low enough to let it boil before the fan turns on, and valves that still need to be adjusted for their first time, what's a girl with 30k miles really worth?
As an aside, there are A LOT more clean LHS fairings than RHS ones on ebay. If you guys ever crash try to do it on a left turn. There's gotta be some deep psychological thing going on here...I wonder if righties crash more on the right side and lefties on the left side?
