    Bought this bike a number of years ago (young kid with parents money) thinking it would be the perfect engine displacement size. Literally rode it twice, it was parked in the shop and I moved on to mx bikes. The original owner, ran an atk dealer in Aurora. I purchased it from the 2nd owner who stripped the turn signals and taillight, making it his dirt only ride. The bike ran great before it was parked, not smoking and had no valve issues. Its not in running order at this time since it has been sitting. I do still have the taillight for it and also have a skid plate that's not on the bike.

    the good: rotax 350 engine, WP inverted fork, WP shock, gold Talon hubs, seat re-covered modeled after oem, oversized pro taper bars, steel braided brake line, devol front rotor guard.

    the not so good: been sitting so fuel line is cracked and needs replacement, piece of sidepanel is cracked where seat bolt is, front brake lever is missing, and both rear and front brakes are not working, most likely need to be bled.

    I paid $2k for the bike, but don't be scared to make me an offer of any amount, I'd like to see someone actually get some use out of it, not to mention i'm leaving for boot camp and will never make time for it unfortunately. Thanks everyone.

    Are parts still available?
    Is it the 'electric start' model?

    sorry for the delay. its a kick, kinda unique because its on the left as mentioned by nemisis714. It does still have the toggle switches on the bars for turn signals, horn etc...Dont think I can bear to part it out since its a complete bike and ran well before it was parked.

    I might jump on this once I get the cash, which might be a couple of weeks :angry7:

    But I am REALLY interested in this!

    shoot the kid that had it before me through me off by striping all the dualsport stuff of it. You guys got me thinking, double checked and it does indeed have a E start button on the bars. Here's a pic. Apologize for dropping the ball not knowing that it did.

    Was the carb drained before putting it away for storage?

    So this used to have blinkers and a tail light... so is it street legal in theory and platable?

    That's what I thought.
    That assembly on the lower front left looks like a starter unit.
    Just guessing, but don't remember seeing it on the Flat track bikes.

    can you take a picture of the direct front of the engine , camera essentially right behind the front wheel?

    The starter motor might still be there looking closely.... this very well may be a ESDS model. I know nothing really about the 350 bikes....hard to find any history on the model.

    also, I see you posted it on the ATK riders forum, good good.

    it did come from the factory with blinkers, taillight and horn. the original owner rode it as a dualsport, then sold it to make way for a newer atk. I'll for sure grab you that picture in the morning, since I dont have lights in the shop. As for the carb, im a bad boy and didn't drain it, therefore the throttle is stuck closed, I assume due to the float. Because of the issues from the bike sitting I for sure don't expect to get my $2K back and will be very open minded on pricing.

    As requested here is a shot of the front of the engine behind tire and one of the front left of the engine where the rotax's belt system is located.

    Factory skid plate and Taillight. All plastic on the bike is Acerbis, im guessing ATK outsourced all their plastic to them.

    looks like the starter motor has been taken off, can't be completely sure though but normally it's pretty obviously there.
