doubts on bike for sale???

I found a 98 900rr for sale on craigslist for $2500 with 27000 miles and some of the things he told me about it I'm questioning. It has an extended swingarm and lowered front and rides good and fast, but he said he bored it out to a 1250cc and that just seems like a bit much to me. I could just be a little to cautious but what do you guys think?

Perhaps if he's running a Blackbird engine that might be doable. Otherwise, no chance.

There is no way you are going to be able to get the stock motor to 30% more displacement.

I would trust your instincts on this. If you get bad vibes just walk away.

If a bike has been butchered like that one, I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.

Re: doubts on bike for sale???

Even if it was true, or possible for that matter, do you want a Blade or a drag bike ?

Sometimes I wish I was a faster rider, but there's no heroes in the graveyard..............
