Very First Machine, Good deal?
Finally got my first sled, not as new as id like but I couldnt pass up this sweet deal. I picked up a 97 Yamaha Vmax 600 last week. It has about 2500 miles on it, everything is in excellent shape (started on the third pull). The guy I bought it from had it covered and didnt drive it all last year. I figure I got a sweet ass deal, I only paid 1000 bucks for it. The guy sold it because he said it goes way to fast for him, and he needed the money.(its all paid for to, talked to dealer where he bought it from, they said I got a nice sled to) The only real problem with the sled is it needed a new right side trailing arm and shock assembly which cost me around 300 bucks (apparantly one of his dumbass friends pounded on it with a sledge hammer cuz they were pissed with him. The ski is still in good shape thou), I cant wait tomorrow I'll be sledding with my buds, the guys tell me the sled will hit 100-115 mph. Any suggestions, I dont know if I should dress it up to get more speed, havent really driven it yet. My friend just bought a 96 mach z 780 triple for about 5 grande, I think i got a better deal, he spent 37 bucks on gas for just 17 kilometers. I hope to hell mines a little better on gas. Anyone own this sled have any comments or suggestions on what to do and what to look out for?
Thanks for reading, im stoked!!
