Yes in deed. I would have definitely participated. But, I would have been the guy riding the bike, or the guy in back watching.

Maybe you will want to join us for the next Bikes and Coffee event at Montgomery Motors.
Quote from: SoCal250 on May 01, 2023, 12:03:38 PMYes, I think it was a good deal. I did pay the asking price. There were a couple of guys who also wanted it. I was surprised no one tried to pay a little more just to get it.
Congrats Russ! Sounds like you got a great price on it.
(The only sad part is that it's going to lose it's California registration. And once that's gone it'll never come back. )

The vape that I have that comes with the curve box is setup at TDC.

1: get a VERY thick washer. 2: heat the rotor up in an oven to about 225 degrees (yes im serious). 3: set the crank where you want it to fire, it will fire when the leading edge of the ramp on the rotor is about halfway across the pickup button, maybe a hair before. 4: get the rotor with oven mints and set it on the crank end, tap it on lightly with a dead blow mallet or rubber mallet. 5: zap the nut down with an impact, but don't go too crazy
verify timing with timing light.
Quote from: rodneya on April 16, 2023, 08:29:39 PMIt's not to difficult. I have never had to move a bike from one Island to the next. However, a former colleague from Maui used to send his Harley back for summer vacation. He would drop it off at Honolulu harbor and it would be shipped to (I believe) Kahului harbor for pick up.
How easy is it to move a bike, or a car between Islands over there?
Quote from: Hawaii-Mike on April 18, 2023, 10:37:21 PMI will.
Russ that might be the same guy I bought the RZ350 (that you now own) from. You can ask him about that.
Quote from: SoCal250 on April 18, 2023, 11:27:07 AMApparently they (Husband and wife) have been living on the Big Island for quite some time( I believe the wife said on a coffee farm). My best guess is that the owner has more then one home. Probably in California and the Big Island. They probably did not want to hassle sending it back to Cali for the sale. As you said Russ, better for me!Quote from: Aloha808 on April 16, 2023, 06:08:35 PMHe doesn't live on this island. He sent it to Oahu for the ease of sale. Apparently it is being stored in a crate on Oahu.That's odd. If he doesn't live there why would he send it there for "ease of sale"? By sending it Oahu he greatly decreased his buying pool.
It has a California title so it would be much easier to sell here! Buyer's pay good money (sometime stupid) for a 2T gray market bike with a title here.
And it's always easier to sell a bike when you can be on site.
In the end it's better for you though! I hope it works out for you. The price seems pretty reasonable now.

So I take it you'd rather have the Aprilia?...Maybe a wiser choice. Like many others I've been looking at the souped up RD/RZ and I think it looks awesome, I love the paint scheme, wouldn't change a thing but maybe just touch it up here and there. No kickstart on that motor though makes it challenging to ride in real world situations. Such as you stop by a buddies for more than say a half hour and the motor cools down and there's no steep downhill....or you stall her at a stoplight.
Quote from: pdxjim on April 16, 2023, 02:19:21 PMI agree with you. I wanted to see it yesterday. The owner is supposed to get back to me to see the bike. I hope it happens soon. He doesn't live on this island. He sent it to Oahu for the ease of sale. Apparently it is being stored in a crate on Oahu.
If I lived on an island way out in the middle of the ocean, and a $6500 RS250 came up for sale nearby I'd be all over that sh!t like RIGHT NOW!
