So here it is. Apparently some trans problem. Also looks like its been down and somewhat repaired. But for $800 it might be worth it. Any ideas on what this noise is he's describing? http://cincinnati.craigslist.org/mcy/5008611541.html

I'd be really curious what's wrong with it, but hell, for $800 (and thats what he's asking so you could probably get it for less) if it's toast you start selling parts on here and could probably make money on it... upside is you get a good running bike for maybe no work at all if it's something stupid, or a little money and elbow grease if it's messed up... then either ride it, or sell it and make a quick $1000+

Find out if someone replaced the stator cover. It could be the starter hear that just kind of floats in there. If it's not sitting just right it rattles around. Either way, I'd buy it.

I'd buy it in a heartbeat if I was close to it.

Worth more than $820 parted out.

I agree with everyone. Can't lose for that price. I am trying to get in touch with him. We will see.. it may already be gone. If anyone else has any ideas on what it could be chime in. That starter gear will be the first thing I check. I appreciate all of the help.

That's a lot of bike for $800.00... I paid $1200.00 for one with a blown 4th gear and scored a mint 11k mile motor on eBay for $350.00

Swapped it in over the course of the weekend.... Turned out perfect

Looks to me like the radiator is bent on the left side, and the tank dent disguised as a grenade. Look it over good, but I still think it is definitely worth getting for $800.

Looks beat. I'd buy it for parts if there was something I needed. If I was looking for something to ride, I'd look elsewhere.

If you want to swap the trans out, any 900rr trans will drop in. You don't even need to pull the head or crank.

The goofy noise is likely a bent shift fork keeping one dog too close. You can replace that without even pulling the engine. Drop oil, pan, clutch cover and clutch assy, remove fork shaft and forks, replace forks as necessary, and reassemble.

Right on. I decided to not get it. Thanks for the good information. I started adding things up in my head and it would be a money pit. Just like mine
