Scratch that one, it's a scam. Here is where the pic came from.

Seems like a good price for a low mileage bike.

Nice! He says the clutch slave cylinder is bad, and that he'll soon replace it himself. For all that work the rear seal and clutch plate should be changed at the same time.

Ditto! You beat me to it. Along with tires.
Looks great in white though. smile
I got my 99 RS for $2200. It had 38K, no bags, and the front face was cracked. I got the front plastic off ebay for $200 delivered. The brakes are a little off, I rebuilt the Master and changed pads. The brakes are still a little off, or it's just the way the ABS goes on these, not sure yet. Now at 45k needs a rear tire, and now it leaks a little oil at the clutch. frown

Heh, just found this 99 Checkered:
$2100 50K
http://modesto.craigslist.org/mcy/5973939526.html

Cranks, no start. Sold as-is, for parts/repair. All controls indicators function. Clutch and transmission are good. Requires work to become street operational.
No bags

I wonder if its a sidestand problem.

Almost sounds like a salvage title...


The bottom of the rear main seal sits ~1/2" below the top of the oil when it's full. Running 1/2 a quart low on oil will reduce the amount of oil coming out.

If there's a weep hole in the bottom of your bell housing:
But the bike in say 3rd gear
Wrap a bungee around the clutch lever to hold the clutch open
Spray carb cleaner straight up into the weep hole and into the clutch while spinning the rear wheel.
Clean up the mess
