Yamaha Other description

Very good original survivor. Starts cold on first few kicks, warm on first kick. Runs strong.

Pros: New seat cover, no broken plastic, inside tank like new, all lights and switches work, tires good, oil injection works as it should, cables good, exhaust very good from end to end, extra sprocket for off road, engine and frame numbers match, transmission and clutch work great, new battery and air filter, no engine or tranny leaks, original condition.

Cons: No biggies just couple small dings in the tank, fork seals could use replacement, paint is showing it's age, grips could use replacement, side cover rubber grommets are DIY could use replacement, no tool kit but available on line, front fender painted black, one locking side cover over tool kit and air filter missing and all but impossible to find anywhere, one key not original.

Comes with service manual, clear title. Bikes in this condition are hard to find, excellent candidate for full restoration. Kinda, was my plan but I'll never get around to it. NADA guide for condition lists around $2,000.00.
