How can anything sell for more than the buy it now price ? :? Why you bid more?
Why would you pay £2100 for a bike that won't start ....you'd have to factor in at least a carb strip and parts ...
Well good luck who ever you are , when it FINALLY starts it'll be a cracking machine :lol:

Looks a nice bike though, which is all you will be doing (looking at it :lol: :lol: :lol: )
Also they will have the pleasure of trying to fathom out how to get the carbs in/out with the airbox in place, the joys of a 400.
Saying that I never had any issues starting mine but I religiously started it every week, only issue was a slight wiggle at anything over a ton :)

If it had been a black engine and not in Southampton, I'd have bought it for spares!

GSX400SS Smallkat
TS185ER technically belongs to Mrs Smallkat
GT250 X7 (head gasket blown)
GT250 X7 in small pieces

The relevance of a black engine? :? They equally don't start just like the silver one :mrgreen:

Correct, but mine has a black engine, so to have the spare engine in the same colour might of been useful. That's what I was telling myself.

Then I started looking at a GSX400 Impulse (also thinking about a making it a mini GS1000S Wes Cooley rep) that has the same engine/carbs and Mrs Smallkat caught me and firmly advised me that no further motorcycle purchases were possible until I had finished some of the current projects. :cry:

Suzuki actually sold the MK2 400 impulse as an icv/Cooley replica with white/red or white/blue paintwork.

Icv replica impulse 400, for when you want to angrily shout at a bike that refuses to start or run right, but fancy a change from doing that to the kat......
