Since the very 1st time I saw the S1 it has been and RBI still the best looking bike anywhere imo and happy to give my beloved GSX1400......looking at this 1 on eBay now, a bit high in price I think but looking at trying to sort something out...fingers crossed

Last picture shows a dodgy bracket mount from the engine to the silencer hanger . Could be paint or casting mark . Needs a spondon front engine mount bracket.

Cheers for that top gumm...tbh it did look different to my last one and know it's one of the must haves, but I'm not a tech and for whatever reason know a bit more than I can actually do lol......but take it it can be sorted yeah? What do we reckon to the test of the bike....or should I be waiting for another to turn up?

Not looked, but 8k sounds very high, I thought 4.5 to 5k was the going rate for a reasonable one :?:

What's your location?

If you are considering selling your gsx1400..... i'm considering buying one of those to replace my X1 (My log book does state it's an S1! which some do btw ;) )

Feel free to Pm details of your bike.

Welcome too.

The welding on the headers would suggest a full titanium system which must have cost a fortune :idea:

Yeah Nutah know that they don't come up that open (rocky horse shit springs to mind) but thought surely they not gone up to that.....bought mine of Nick for 4.5 and pretty much sold it for the same but wasn't sure what the going rate for a sorted one is.....that's if it's sorted.....and the exhaust does looks the bollocks lol.....any buying advice would be good
