Looking good. Seems like having quite a few mods. Maybe you can contact the seller and ask him about the mods that are not visible in the pics?!

Looks to me like the R1 is 8,500 euros, the Warrior is 10,000 euros. That said, it is definitely lowered, coils relocated so probably has a VBAK of some sort, obviously exhaust and forward controls. Speedstar scoop but probably cosmetic. Hard to tell other than that...

Welcome to the family! The bike looks to have the stock rear fender cut down, aftermarket tail lights on the side of the fender, the coils are moved and there is the Yamaha Speedstar right side intake. It has forward controls and aftermarket bars, risers, grips and mirrors.


It looks to be in good condition. Like said if you can ask the seller if recalls have been done and if there are other modifications that can't be seen. Like a fuel manager?

I'd ask myself 'who modded this and does he have a good reputation for doing things like this?'. There's going to be higher risk that corners were cut buying a modded bike. Buying from someone you trust and who has done many mods over the years would help me sleep better. If I didn't know what to look for and didn't have sound reason to trust the person selling to me, I'd pass and find a mostly stick warrior and do the work myself. You'll get all the tech support you can shake a stick at here.

That said, if all we can see is good, the recalls have been verified done, all basic 'new to you' motorcycle checks pass, it starts up COLD without issue, and runs great throughout all the range, I'd then look under tank for VBAK under seat for fuel controller, and ask for the Dyno paperwork. Definitely check for COD!

In Florida we can run the VIN for major repairs and check title for salvage or rebuilt.

I hope it goes well man, the bike looks great (except I don't like studs on seat if that's what they are).

It looks to be a sound bike, hard to mess up a Warrior unless you don't give a crap. This one looks well taken care of in the pic's. I don't know how much US dollars that would be, but probably worth it.

waw thats a lot of food for thought right there. I am seeing the bike tomorrow and will ask about recalls, maintenance, mods done and hope I can remember everything he says. few things you mentioned there I have no clue what they mean. like the part under the seat and check for... might be translation but Google is my friend I guess.. thanks again all.
