So this post will be dedicated to my Warrior Hot Rod project, I will try to go over with as much details as possible.
Chapter I - Purchase
So in 2022.06.30 I've purchased my Bike from Copart.com
In this link you can see the listing 2003 Yamaha XV1700, PC
And here you can picture already from Loading dock:
Let's talk about the money...
Last bid: $1700
Auction fees: $538
Trucking to port: $358
( since everything else will be in euros, so total 3050€ )
And the rest was waiting...
On 2022 September 23rd I received a call that my bike is on the way to my yard.
Here's couple pictures:
So basically since the keys were lost I couldn't get it started for while.
I've ordered JW Speaker headlight with special mounting bracket for Warrior and installed it.
Got it on the trolley and took it to mechanic.
1st problem was bent front shock:
So had to get new shocks, which was quite a challenge.
2nd problem was faulty starter relay:
I found that previous owner while installing power commander III did not a good job and that lead this trace burning down. I managed to fix this myself.
3rd problem I needed oem License plate holder for the inspection, so I've managed together couple cut off license plate holders, took my soldering iron and got to work:
Afterwards, we've changed the shocks, a friend lent me original exhaust for inspection and it was time to go register it.
The inspection went fine and finally got my license plate:
So this was on 2022 December 5th.
Let's get down to damages...
Import taxes: 840€
Transportation from dock: 323€
New shocks: 450€
LED Headlight: 360€
Mechanic work: 250€
As most of you know this is not yet the current state, so when I will find time I'll continue here
