Well looks like that the battle between lust and logic was won by lust.
I was almost sure that the SV would be a more logical, more relaible and cost effective choice, but I found this 2004 Cup bike that has never been tracked or raced and couldn't pass it up. Has just under 450 miles total. Its not running perfect because it needs some re-jetting (from sitting in storage for a long time)
I am looking for a 2 stroke tunning expert (pref near Raleigh NC) so please PM me if you know of one.
