I’m looking for a functioning, good condition Bursig stand with the correct adapter plate for 02-06 RCs. PM me if you know where I could get new or used.

I want that stand too... Freaking epic!
Be aware if you get a message or pm from a new member with 0 post advising that [email protected] has the part it’s a SCAM!! When I posted this request I was contacted by 2 new member both saying a guy had it and a link to their email address. The first one was benmorton at Gmail. I contacted him and he sent me a photo. This was all on iPhone as he said he wasn’t a member. I hesitated a bit when he asked for payment thru Zelle. Had never heard of them but found my bank offered the service so was somewhat reassured. I was one click from sending the money but decided to google Zelle. Consensus was if you know & trust the recipient ok, but if not be aware there are no protections such as PayPal offers. So I bailed. The new member contacted me on pm and I told him why but he said the guy was trustworthy. Didn’t buy it. Today I was thinking about this and googled the other name, [email protected], there was a flood of websites where this same pair of emails came up as scammers. This was a couple car websites and a gun website and so on. This one guy is everywhere. He goes onto a site looking for want to buy posts and then joins under fake info. That member then refers prospective buyers to one of the emails. Just a word to the wise, check it out especially when it’s a 3rd party email etc. Those aren’t all the emails this creep is using but the method seems the same across all the websites I checked.

I went through the same thing on another forum and went as far as sending payment , then no further contact. Paypal refunded my money.

Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately, this nonsense is going on all over the internet. Good job doing your homework on these guys.

This same person got me for $280 for an ‘04 front nose cowling. He also got someone else for $750 worth of parts on this forum. We got in touch with one of the admin through a Facebook group and they blocked his account and took not of his IP address but I doubt anything will happen to him. I’m so glad that you didn’t get completely tricked like we did! Lol
