TT600R parts Bonanza!

Im selling my TT600R and loads of parts ive accumulated over the last few years. All parts are for the Belgarda kickstart only model, but should fit the RE electric start model. Only thing im not sure about are the electrical parts, but im sure someone on the HUBB will know the answer!
All prices include UK postage

Acerbis 20L tank with in line fuel filter, quality fuel pipe and funky graphics kit - £130 save £100
B+B aluminium bashplate, barely used - £55 (£90 new)
Arrow Dakar silencer, got a dent in it and scruffy but DOES NOT FALL TO BITS like the standard can - £60 (over £150 new if you can find one)
Hepco and Becker rear rack. Just the rear rack, not the sides to take aluminium panniers, but you can buy those seperate if you wish - £55 (£90 new)
Dipstick with oil temperature gauge - £25
Pair of wheels complete apart from rear disk, good used condition. Handy so you can have a set of full knobblies for the trails! - £150 ( expensive to post, £125 if collected), i have no idea what these would be new, but i am sure they'd be well over £500
Rear disk, brand new and unused - £30
CDI unit, basically new, only ever plugged in to check it worked - £150 (these are a fortune new and an essential spare)
Coil, again brand new, only ever plugged in to check it worked - £30
Oil Pump, brand new and boxed in sealed wrapping - £50
Brand new in wrapping blue rear fender - £25
Used and slightly scratched front fender - £10
I also have a complete custom made rear pannier rack system complete with one off soft panniers. These are the same kind of shape and size as aluminium bokes, but are made of a tough cordura type fabric. This rack also comes with an aluminium top box, which is an army surplus flightcase. The whole rack system is seriously over engineered and built like a tank. £175
Also a custom made jerry can rack which mounts a ten litre steel jerry can either side of the engine(included). There is also a tool case(army surplus ammo box) attached by the sump guard. I found that the jerries also doubled as amazingly good crash bars! £100
Original barely used aluminium handlebars - £10

Also My BIKE

1999 TT600R Belgarda (kickstart) with 30000kms
5000km's since new timing chain, piston, rings and a load of other work (by Ian Hutchinson, Isle of Man TT star and mechanic)
Nearly brand new quality chain and sprockets.
Continental TKC80 tires
Professionally lowered suspension by DPS racing, at cost of over £300. This combined with the -
Professionally lowered and widened seat by Motocycleseatworks, gives a seat height of 820mm. The seat has a small rip on the bottom edge on the right hand side.
This is the Belgarda bike with Paoili forks and Ohlins rear shock. The suspension on this bike, both on and off road, is excellent. There is a spacer fitted in the top of the forks which, when removed makes the front softer for better compliance off-road. Ive ridden trails all over the UK and Spanish Pyrenees and never removed the spacer. You only really feel the stiffness on really rocky trails when the front can bounce off big rocks.
These bikes come as standard with Excel Takasoga rims and fat spokes.
This TTR is EXTREMELY easy to start and is without a doubt the easiest starting TT600R i've come across, so don't fear the kicker! The bike was dynoed after the above mentioned work and the fuelling was perfect, ie. the guys at the tuning place told me to come and collect it they couldnt make it run any better on standard parts.
Now the bad bits.......
This bike is not in as new condition! It has been used off-road and the frame paint etc is worn. The plastics are quite recent(it is a white bike, with red and black graphics) but are scratched.
The bike uses a bit of oil, nothing too dramatic but worth being aware of. Occasionally it will smoke when started from cold. This is apparently from the valve stem seals being worn and allowing oil to drip into the combustion chamber when the bike has been stood for a while. This is a common XT/TT issue and not a major(ie. not expensive) problem to rectify when its time comes.
Bike will have a 12 month MOT upon sale. It is currently SORN and i wont be able to tax it as its not insured. Delivery may be possible....

£1100 ono

I'll try to get some photos together over the next few days
