Thinking about selling my supermoto to get something "more streetable"

For sale is 2001 WR426, with valid clean NC Street title. Title is on hand.

Anyways, Since I purchased this bike last year, I have added about 1000-1500miles. From what I was told this would mean the bike has a total of 6000-6500 miles. Engine is stock.

Bike has:
-Trail Tech X2 Head light, looks sick and is pictured.
-Has Works Connections all over the bike.
-Black Excel rims
-LED Blinkers, LED stoplight/taillight
-All free mods complete.
-ACEWell Computer
-White Brothers E-series Slip on. (sounds really good, and LOUD!)
-Supermoto Front fender
-Not-stock rear fender, (probably from a YZ, is pictured)
-Baja Designs Street Legal Kit
-Supermoto big front rotor
-Rear wave rotor
-Frame and swing arm powder coated black. (looks awesome, and pictured)

New:
-UFO Plastics Black Fork Sliders
-Acerbis Black Side Panels
-Front Brake Pads
-Axle Sliders
-Battery
-Fresh Oil and K&N Oil Filter
-Pro Taper Grips (not pictured, added 3/16/2011)

Also, bike comes with extra rear sprocket (47 tooth), trail tech computer, stock plastics, acerbis hand gaurds, Maxxis Supermotard rain tries, and probably more that I forgot.

Only known problems:
-Rear brake pressure switch doesn't work. Planning on replacing. (All this means is the brake light doesn't come on if only using rear brake)
-Needs new rear tire.

Anyways, here are pictures taken today:

How did you do your axle sliders?
Kinda complicated. Used a 5/16" threaded rod front and rear. On the front the right side of the axle is very large inside, so i stacked a couple washers with nuts on either side in order to have the rod sit center and tight. Then i put more washers on the outsides and used nus to secure the rod. Used a nut or two as spacers then pressed a T nut into the skateboard wheel so the flange was facing in. (I used T-nuts without spikes) Then got two washers per wheel on the other side and used a nut to secure the wheel. The wheel will not move in or out, as it is very secure. I also measured the bolts after I mocked up the whole rig, and used my dremel to cut the bolts so all of the metal is recessed within the wheel. I figure it will be better to slide only on the wheels if the bike ever goes down. Hope that helps!

scootnscooby, as shelbyguy said, it is the manual decompression lever. This lever is used to relieve compression from the cylinder at the top of the compression stroke (when kick starting). This is to make it very easy to kick start the bike.

and shelbyguy- Thanks for the compliment!

I REALLY want it, it would compliment my YZ450F off-road bike, plus I'm close by in Lexington, NC! I'm just waiting on the Harley and four wheeler to sell. You will definitely hear from me as soon as they do!!!

how streetable is it. basically why are you getting rid of it
As of now, I want something that I can ride to class and leave it in the parking lot. Also having more distance capability would be nice. The WR426 isn't the kind of bike to ride a far distance down the highway on. Get it out on the twisties though and :D

The bike is super fun to ride, and I don't want to part with it, but can't afford to have two bikes.

I decided to keep to the bike.

Went and got some new tires for it yesterday... Taking the forks and shock up to FBI (fast bike inc) in the next week or two to have them re-sprung and re-valved.

Future plans: 444 big bore kit, yz450 exhaust cam... :D
