I got that fzr with a blown head gasket for 800 bucks in 08, odo read 8700 miles. I fixed it, got it running good, and cruised around for a while, but it didn't have the power I was looking for so I sold it. The guy I sold it to crashed it two days later. I saw it for sale on craigslist for parts.

Sad really, it was a super clean bike with low miles.

Yeah, that was a nice lift. It rose 4ft and could be foot pumped or attached to my compressor. The gsxr was tracked quite a bit around the local michigan road courses and put down 110hp at the wheel. She was my baby until I had actual babies.

? lol
