I'm selling a 1996 XRV750. This is a bike that I stupidly bought for a mate in 2017. Unfortunately that didn't work out & it's been stored in my garage since.
When I bought the bike it had been sat in a damp garage for 10 years. I stripped the carbs & got it running. Then left it.
Have recently done some work on it just to get it MOTed and sold.
The good bits:
Engine 42000 miles. Pulls like a train.
Oil & filter change.
New air filter.
New seal kit for carbs.
New fuel filter.
New braided front brake lines.
New front wheel bearings.
New rear brake pads.
Rear brake caliper has new seals.
Chain & sprockets good.
Driveshaft good.
Tank, fairing & plastics in good condition.
Remus silencer
The bad bits:
Engine won't idle low, can't get it to run lower than 2000 rpm!
Frame & engine really corroded.
Wheel rims not good.
I have original wheels, silver rims. Back one ok but front no good.
Cooling fan not coming on.
In summary the bike is an ideal base for a restore or ride as is winter hack.
I already own an AT so don't need another & don't have time to do anymore to this one.
Will attempt to upload pics. Can take more if requested.
Hopefully can get MOT sometime this week or on Saturday.
£1500 one.
PM me if interested.
I'm in Banstead in Surrey.
