I was checking out this nice 2009 specimen on Gumtree the other day.
Motor overheated. It needed a new crank, but was in a beautiful condition, with a leo vince pipe on.
The guy wanted R20000 i got him down to R15000.

Then i started with sourcing prices for parts. Although readily available, they are hugely expensive.

Needless to say the bike is still riding around in my dreams at night and would not mind to fill that gap between the 800 and my YZ250.

Just do not think it would be worth it thou.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy shit...... WHAT A RIDE"!!!!!!!

Nice ! I'd like to hear some feedback on your new ride especially using it as a DS platform. Some love it and others quickly go running back to the comforts of a bigger bike mostly because they ride the wrong terrain with it imho.

I've really been enjoying it. Quickly realised it's shortcomings, but having loads of fun riding it. Not quite the "dual" that I thought it would be, but it will suit me just fine. Biggest lesson so far: miss the tubeless setup of my big bikes.... got a flat in the mountains ons Sunday and was ill prepared to deal with it. Ended up riding 30km home in the dark on a flat rear.....

My heart was set on a Husky 501, but just could not ignore this bike at a third of the price. Not regretting buying the beemer thus far....

I had mine converted to tubeless, works well.
Could not reinstall the rear rim lock, but the front is reinstalled, which gives added confidence.
Cheers

Why not look at the Tubliss system? Ideal for this size bike - retains a rim lock and can also rub flat in an emergency.
