Nice work! Pictures. That's pretty much premium price, but that's a rare low milage find. Sounds like a perfect bike. Party on Garth!

Premium price? Yes. But the Sato high mount exhaust system sent chills up and down my spine. He told me it cost him 3 grand with the power commander pre-mapped by Sato, parts and install.
Does 3 grand sound right to you?

Either ways, its yours now.

Congrats. Ride safe. Expensive purchase for the market. Banzais were expensive, but only around $1800 when available.

The seller said 3 grand was for the Sato Banzais, Power commander mapped by Sato, all hardware(hangers etc.) and installation. I knew going in that the Banzais alone where $1800. I also know they are no longer available. Thats how I justified to myself spending $7500 for the bike.

IMO its still worth it! And 1760 miles? It cant get much closer to brand new than that, and it's probably better off being run once in a while in the last 6 years.
With the rest of the stuff, I bet that bike is super healthy. I'm guessing never been dropped?

a bit expensive, but sounds like your in love with it. you can never pay to much for a bike you really want. in the end whatever you are willing to pay, is worth it. bikes with low miles like that are rare and i'm sure itll be very reliable and well worth it. congrats
