That was a good buy and the warrenty to boot. One of the salemen was using your bike as a daily driver for a while. Now all you need to do is add on some slip on pipes, fuel processor, air kit and some bling. You're gonna love the way the VV rides.

Beautiful bike!! I pulled my exhaust header pipe to have the o2 bung welded in for the wide band o2 sensor when I installed the PCV w/ autotune. WHile I had the header pipe off, I had it ceramic coated inside and out. Really cut down on the radiant heat from the pipe. I also do not have to worry about any rust or corrosion from wrapping the header pipe. The header pipe on these are rather thin and I did not want to chance wrapping the pipes and having issues later down the road.

Bought it from a dealer in michigan who let it go at a reasonable price it even has ABS. Is there a link on how to wrap the pipes and which ones do you wrap?
this might be my old bike does it have a scratch on the front fairing in the gray part that is about 2 inches long mine also had 11000 miles on it
