Current ride: XB12S
Location: Uxbridge
Hi guys.

I've been thinking about selling it for the past year or so but every ride reminds me of Why I Bought it but this time round I think it's a final decision but only for the right buyer. I'm not desperate.

I've owned it since Oct. 2012.
I bought it completely stock.
I've done lots of work on it and every spring I pop the battery in, fire it up and enjoy every ride but as you can see on the mileage done most recently - there weren't so many rides after all.
Bike was red originally with gold wheels - In V5 it still says RED.
Over time it was white, white-red, white-red-black and now it's ALL BLACK. The story is too long to tell.
Anyways, This are the most recent pic's.

Anyone interested - let me know and I'll send you more pictures.

MOT expires in June but I could do new one before letting her go.

MOT history I know of:
- 09.09 - 6726
- 07.11 - 7337
- 08.12 - 10070
- 08.13 - 14131
Bike was off the road from 12/13 till 04/15
- 05.15 - 15417
- 05.16 - 17532
- 05.17 - 19055
- 06.18 - 20448

CURRENT Millage: approx. 21500 and may slightly change but I wouldn't expect a lot.

2 previous owners.

Some details:
- Bike received new hand made exhaust last year in January by APH Performance. I think it was around £900. Mint condition.
- It has wide and low bar (approx. 8inch. wider than stock).
- Headlights received Devil eye / BiXenon conversion - you would need to change the whole unit if you want to go back to stock. Due to xenon balasts and extra cables, bike has NO HORN. I still have the piece though.
- Tail tidy by me.
- Tail light is a RADIANTZ dual strip. Tail light, Stop light and indicators intergrated. Never had any issues with police but they did say there should be a gap between indicators. " I didn't know and will change it, officer" always works.
- A reg. is on side placed on chopped piece of metal - could use some kind of fancy bracket but never bothered me, it has a light and again - never any police problems. It may not be the nicest but I had to think of something an hour before a coast ride - and so it's there since 2013. The best thing about it is that you can cover the plate with your foot when passing a camera.
- Tail is lifted on metal plates, not on a bracket so could do replacement if you want something fancy
- Carbon looking wrap on sides is due to some paint missing on the left hand side. It was pilled off accidently when I was wrapping the airbox cover. I have some pictures of it if needed.
- Black wheels I bought on ebay in 2015 as mine were stolen.
- Free spirit tensioner
- Free spirit soft clutch
- side stand pivot fixed last year
- breather mod done few years back - container could use replacement
- K&N air filter


- Since I have it, bike was dropped to right hand side. Well, it was pushed by a car in a carpark and it dropped. It rides straight, apart of cosmetic, no other damages.
- She has some scratches age and millage related
- Both tyres are good, however, rear had a puncture last year, it was fixed but I need to top it up every 2-3 weeks so could use replacement in near future.

I have a service history since I've owned it. Previous owner claimed changing Drive Belt at approx. 5000miles.
I've done most of the work on the bike myself, including services.
Always serviced on MOTUL 7100 20W50, K&N filter, gearbox oil from Harley.
Serviced every year so every more or less 1500 miles.
Wheel bearings changed in Jan. 2018

Bike also comes with:
- rear foot pegs
- original dash plate
- Front and rear stand. Front doesn't exactly fit the bike but I still use it.
- Battery optimizer - bike has a plug fitted.
- ECM spy cable
- spare clutch cable
- some old bits and pieces taken off the bike if you want them



PRICE: I was looking at around £4500 but I'm open to reasonable offers.

Viewing in Uxbridge, UB8.
Test ride in closed carpark possible but only with cash in FULL in hand.


There is probably something i've missed - feel free to ask.

Some interest was there but it turned out I wasn't ready to let her go ;)

Up for sale now - this time for sure ;) I think.

- services recently @ 21699 miles on 2/8/2019 (Motul 7100 20W50, K&N oil filter, HD primary oil)
- New belt on the shelf purchased- will go with the bike. The current one is still on the bike and fine.
- Belly pan cracked from vibrations, see pictures below
- rear tire could use replacement sooner than I thought but still road legal
- front fender has a black paint damage from the gas mask.
