QLink XF200 Great condition, low miles many extras. Similar to DR200SE Columbus, Ohio
It's a 2009, great bike with just under 2,000 miles. It has been well maintained and never have I had any problems. This bike is pretty much a DR200SE but much better looking in my opinion. The build quality is just as good as a DR200SE as Qlink makes parts/bikes for Suzuki. The bike comes with the common mods everyone does on the enthusiast forums. Nothing major, just an open exhaust and re-jetted, as the bike runs really lean from the factory. There's a dealer right beside Iron Pony who sells and services Qlink products. This same bike retails for about $2300-$2500. Qlink makes good products.
Have the title on hand, Asking $1400 due to all of the extras I'll list below(I may forget some). I've seen many bikes without any of these extras sell for about this price. Please email me if you're interested.
For the bike:
+Extra Gas tank from Qlink($125+ value)
+Two Large Wolfman Rolie Bags(These are about $60 each, Both have never been used, one open the other still is in its original packaging. $120 value)
+Extra CDI($50 value, also has settings to advance the timing beyond stock)
+Aluminum handlebars(can be put on easily $40)
+USB charging adapter(connects to the battery terminals, never been used, not installed)
+Cigarette charging adapter(works the same as the USB charging adapter, never been used as well)
+Tire changing irons
+Original street tires, still in great condition(not sure what they'd be worth but they maybe have 1,000 miles, and I doubt that.)
+Extra Tube(Fits both front and rear tires, $20value)
+Bar end mirrors(not installed)
On the bike:
+FMF Exhaust($100 exhaust, still have original exhaust which can easily be put back on)
+16T Front Sprocket(I have the original 15T sprocket, easily changed $20 value)
+Rejetted(only went one size up from the factory)
+Knobby Tires(Pretty much brand new, Shinko 244s, cost about $60 each so $120 value)
+Tank bag($50 value)
+Tank saddle bags(Cheap but still nice to have, $15 value)
+Rear Luggage rack(this didn't come with it, cost me like $50)
+Seat Pad($15 value)
+LED bulbs( in all turn signals, as well as dashboard. These won't burn out anytime soon, plus they draw less power)
+Brand new battery(cost like $80)
+Acerbis Handguards($35 value)
For the rider:
Comes with two helmets, both haven ever been dropped or anything that would render them useless.
+AFX FX-39 DS Helmet Size:Medium (This is practically brand new, retails for about $120 GREAT helmet)
+A.R.C Corona Riding Boots Size: 12(brand new, highly reviewed boots from RockyMountain ATV $90 value, don't let the price fool you, they're well made)
