So....many years ago I owned an'03 xb9r. Loved the bike, put about 67,000 kms on it, but I guess maybe it was that "7 year itch" that crept in, decided to sell and try something else.
So I've since dabbled with a couple of Ducati's, battled with a BMW, and currently court a KTM Duke 690.
However----I just came into possession of (most of) a 2005 xb12r. This bike had belonged to a friend (who passed away a couple of years ago), and was most recently in the possession of another riding buddy.
I say "most of" as it needs at least the engine's bottom end or perhaps a complete engine. I have (and I *think* they're OK) the cylinders and pistons, starter motor, some crankcase covers, etc.... I pretty much have the rest of the bike too...
To me, (as much as it scares me) I absolutely NEED to rebuild this machine, and then ..... ride it.
So....I've just put up an "engine wanted" post in the classifieds section. I've been watching ebay too for a week or so...
If you or anyone you know has an 05-07 xb12 engine, please holler.
