2005 Warrior midnight bagger in Indiana 5,000 Price Drop Obo

This bike has been great. But unfortunately its time to let my "cruiser" go.
14k miles. I guarantee you will not find another bike like it.
The paint is a newer camaro green, and has a lot of pearl in it, when it's clean and in the sun it looks very good.

Runs and rides like it should.
Never been down, clear title in my name.
Recent battery and oil change, always stored inside. Tires have some life left in them. It's ready to ride.
Vance and Hines exhaust
After market handlebars, and mirrors
Barons BAK
Power commander
New Barnett clutch with steel for spring swap
DLX Produx forward controls mostly powder coated black
Corbin seat with drivers backrest
Corbin fairing, with Long ride shield
Passenger backrest is a modified star set up to work with the taller Corbin seat
Christok lower cowling
Custom front fender
Yamaha Roadstar Silverado hard saddlebags
MTX Audio Bluetooth "MUD" speaker bar.
There is probably some more I'm forgetting.

I have the factory front fender, air cleaner, seats and some other stuff.

I might be able to help with delivery or a fly and ride, or ride and fly situation.

Text is preferred due to my work schedule.
732-672-6298

The bike is located in Bedford Indiana 47421

I’d say it’s a decent price. Maybe able to get more if you take all the extras off and put OEM back on, and sell the extras separate. Just an idea. GLWS

I'm one of the 76 views even though I just bought a warrior two weeks ago. Why? Because I like to look at 'warrior porn'... any picture of a yamaha warrior and I'll look at it. :)

As for price; I wouldn't lower your price too much, although the time of year is not doing you any favors. I mean no disrespect when I say this... My guess is the color is going to put any potential buyers into one of two categories;
1. They are looking for a great deal because the color is... unique. They would view the color as something that detracts from the cost of the bike vs any of the stock colors, decreasing the bikes value. This is probably the majority of folks.
2. They are looking for a unique bike done up just the way yours is and they are willing to pay a premium for it.
It will take longer to find someone in the second group of potential buyers, but when you do they are going to be much more likely to pay a higher amount for it.

Just my $0.02.

Thanks JV_Warrior, I've considered it.

Desertboy13 Thank you!

DirtieGirtie I'm 100% with you. I did and still do the same... I'm in no rush to sell, as I do still love the bike, I just don't ride it very often... I'm "on call" with a 30 min response time with my job constantly, answering the phone and getting out the laptop on the side of the road is MUCH easier while in a cage.

Thanks for the compliments guys...

Getting the bags to sit just right took a couple of trials, and about 5 cereal boxes...
I mocked them up by placing them on jack-stands and 5 gallon buckets to get the height, then as far as spacing I wanted them as close to the bike as I could get them...
You can't put them ANY closer unless you were to use a different type of hinge. The way the side mounted clam shell hinge works is on an arc meaning the inside front and rear of the bags get closer to the bike as they are opened...
Any closer and they would drag on the front and back edges when opening or closing.

Pics of one of the original mock ups.

The brackets are just flat stock with some simple bends. I made a template for the (side wall) part closest to the sub frame and the entire bottom of each bag.

The rear fender on the Silverado must not be as wide as the one on the warrior. There is some wasted space cut out of the left bag (from the factory) to give clearance for the rear sprocket, only about half of which is needed with the warrior, but I wanted a "lockable" factory styled or shaped bag and with Yamaha there just aren't many options. My 16" Dell laptop and backpack will fit in either side.


I asked a few people here and on other forums with removable bags and 95% of them never took them off, after they installed them, except for cleaning, or maintenance, so no point in making them easily detachable.
As you can see from my pink Styrofoam "road" I did not want the bags to be the limiting factor when leaning... I have scraped the pegs a couple of times, and the bags didn't touch. (My other bike is a Supermoto):rolleyes:

Desertboy,
With imagination and a welder there isn't much that can't be done... I'm just a normal guy...

I used the existing holes in the sub frame / seat rest and hung two pieces of flat stock down vertically, and angled them back so they were more in the center of the bags. The ones on the left side needed a couple of bends made to follow the inside of the recess for the drive cut out. After getting those two "straps" where I wanted them I held up my two pieces of steel (inner and floor) for the bags, and tacked them in place. It took a few tries to get it where I wanted, but the end result is way better and stronger than any bolt on kit stuff I had seen (EZ Brackets, and others). As far as cutting the support pieces. I literally placed the saddle bag on top of the thin cardboard (a few cereal boxes taped together to make one piece large enough), and traced around them. Cereal box can be cut with scissors, or tin snips, now that you have your templates fitting the way you want trace it out onto thin sheet metal, and cut it out with a jigsaw. Just remember to allow time and patience to test fit it about 30 times then take it all apart to powder coat and paint, and hope it all goes back together how it came apart... :D

I had seen some horror stories of guys supporting the ebay bags only by strips of steel and over time the bags would tend to sag, so I put full support underneath and between the bike and the bags so the inside of the bags could rest against, on and attach to.

If y'all have any more questions feel free to ask.
Josh

I found a corvette, the wife says I can’t have both.

beautiful bike. I'm actually looking for a bagger. I'd love to take it off your hands but I need to get rid of some other bikes to make room in my garage. We'll be in touch....

Hey Chieko..
So what did u get after ur last warrior

I've got four Warriors right now. All of them I've bought on the forum. I don't know what to do with my first one. I rode her cross country 4,000 miles over the course of two months. I have a picture diary on the forum about it. She's been sitting for a couple of years now. I thought I'd find a shop to rebuild it, maybe turn it into a bobber or give some sort of unique look. Attaching pics of my stable

Da OG - needs A LOT of love to bring her back to life
