So....... I gave up. LOL. I wasn't in the mood to dump more time and energy and money into the bike. The R6 has been sold, as is, for 1,700. He came and looked at it today. Wants the bike. Even threw in a secondary helmet for him. If everything goes well and according to plan, I'll meet him at the bank Tuesday morning when it opens. He'll give me the money, and I'll sign the title over to him. And I've even arranged to have it towed to the shop for him so he can get the work done on it. So it's off to start looking at newer bikes, which hopefully won't have so many issues. Anyone willing to go check out bikes with me once I find that I like??
