Post 2001 KLR 650 in Buenos Aires, Arg for sale

I have a 2001 KLR 650A fully modified for the tough riding. You can see all of the modifications at my website listed in my profile. It is 3 inches lowered and has a RICK Mayer saddle. It is perfect for height challenged people and I have ridden 750 mile day on the saddle. Absolutely no problem with clearance even on the rocky mountain big dog ride. It needs a new piston. I have been sitting in Buenos Aires for a week and am preparing to ship it back to the USA. However, I am considering selling it. It has a clear USA Colorado title and is ready to go except for the piston. So far I have had no luck in finding a piston in the city. I will continue to look for piston. Otherwise, if you have time, I will mail you a piston from the US. US cost is $70 for piston and $40 or so for rings and gaskets. It is sitting at Dakar Motos where I am also staying. phone: 54-11-4730-0586 Carlos Tejedor 1379, Florida Vicente Lopez, Buenos Aries, Arg. Go to www.dakarmotos.com for map. Javier is a mechanic and will install the piston for you. You can see photos and all of the modifications of the bike at my website listed in my hu profile. Asking price is reasonable--- less than 3,000 U$S with all of the modifications which cost over 1,800 U$S. Negotible. The vehicle permit is good until at least August 2006 but can be extended.

Hi, is the bike still up for sale and at Dakar motors? Are you still at Dakar motors? I've just checked their website and they mentioning storing bikes long term. You couldn't do me a favour and find out how much it would cost to keep your bike there until mid-October? If it doesn't cost the earth, then I might be interested. I basically need a bike ready to go as soon as I land (due to limited time off from work, and funds) so I would need to have the piston fixed too.
Any thoughts on this, send me a message.

Ta. Michelle.
