    Man, I really like that BCS. You hit a gold mine with that one.😎👍🏆👍😎 Itís pretty loaded with great mods already. Of course I canít tell if thereís a TRE and a Fuel Tuner installed, but Iím sure youíre going to flash the ECU anyway. It looks like all it needs is a good set of Air Intakes added, and youíre set. How many miles does it have on it?

    I am pretty pleased with the find, doubt I could do to much better for the price I paid.

    Really love the Costal Moto rims, they set the tone for the entire bike.

    There is no tuner or TRE on it but I will have that situation rectified with a ECU tune today.

    I have a set of intakes I am going to experiment with for a bit already and they will go on the bike in the next couple of days also.
    They are not the best looking intakes but I want to see if I get a increase in power/speed with them.

    Bike has 16,800 miles on it.

    Sounds good to me, looking forward to it.

    I am sure she will get along fine, but will stick out like a sore thumb along side them.

    I worry that I have lost what little camouflage I may have had with the red bike.

    Two sides to that.....

    I should be seen very well so no one pulls out in front of me.....

    But the flip side is, I will be seen very well by the

    Thanks for the compliments guys,

    What really amazes me though is they are all M109's and all are pretty much the exact same bike.......but the feel from one bike to another is totally different.

    This bike is lowered (for now) and has a 160 front tire so I am sure that changes up the way it rides and feels......but I was taken back by how different this bike feels to ride compared to Big Red......two totally different animals, not even close to the same feel when riding them.

    I have noticed this when riding some other 9's around here also, no 2 feel the same way.

    Congrats! Glad you found another ride! Looks good with the rims. You mentioned 160 front, is it a 10'' rear running 280 or stock size on 250 or 260?

    Thanks Chris,

    I was very happy to find this bike and fortunate enough to buy it before someone else did.

    I do not believe the rear is 10 inch, it has a Metzler 260 on the back.

    I bet he did.....LOL

    I pulled up unshaven and looking pretty scrubbed out to pick it up.....you know my normal look.

    Not to mention next to him I look like a live in a Brazilian Favela......dude had a super nice crib and lots of beautiful toys.

    Also I was trying to get the bike for a grand less than he was asking, but he was not having anything to do with that......he did knock off a couple hundred for me.

    Really nice guy, he did right by me and hooked me up with lots of goodies for the 9 he had stashed in his garage also, which was nice.......my po azz can use them.

    Judging from where the rear brake rotor sits in regards to the rim, it isn't a ten inch rim. On the ten inch rim, the rear rotor is noticeably inset inside the rim. Yours looks to be flush with the rim. I wasn't aware that Coastal Moto made any stock size rims for our bikes. Thought they were all over-sized for fat tires.

    Nice bike, I like the yellow. If I were to decide to have mine repainted, I could see that being an option. The red ones are nice also. Hard choice.

    Nice that it already has the down under rear brake caliper. That's a mod I intend to do this year, along with all new turn signals from Raw Design.
