    I've always lusted after this model. I probably wouldn't ride it enough and it would cost to insure and rego but i'd keep it just for the joy of having it and the occasional Sunday cannonball run shattering eardrums and moistening panties all over town.

    Hmm $110 electrical issue and he wonít get it fixed to be able to sell the bike for ~ $5k.

    Something stinks there.

    Yeah it's certainly a risk at least to some degree. What puzzles me is why it has an electrical issue at all. Unlike early model Ducatis modern day bikes generally have robust electrics. Then again, for someone that knew more about bike electrics than me, it's a potential bargain. I wouldn't buy it if I couldn't see it running. If the electrical issue was a fried computer for example it'd very quickly become uneconomical

    Yep exactly. And I struggle to figure out what a mechanic (let alone a motorcycle mechanic) can actually do for $110.

    If it's a "short" the only, and I do mean only quick fix is if one of the connectors, such as headlight or main ignition has melted itself, in which case yes easy fix and I could do it for free in 1/2hr.

    If the reg/rect is gone, or worse the stator then you'll need a few multiples of $110 to get it sorted.

    Answer for $110 is a 'Short' one....

    "It's fucked, that'll be $110 thanks. "

    it will most likely be a burnt out stator if he has had elecy issues for a whille,

    but who wants to buy a bike off a guy that colours in his tyres

    He's changed the price to $4,000 because apparently it was only the battery. Like Hillz said, it's probably the stator not charging.
    2006 zx10r ....problem from previous add was not what i thought it was....ended up being a bad battery under load thats all..only needs a new battery and coolent top up....otherwise perfect machine going cheaper than any 600cc on gumtree with similar age and even less kms in some case's

    I'd be going there with a multi-meter and checking the output from the stator and reg/rect regardless before handing any money over. A 30 second check can tell you if you're up for a few hundred dollars in repairs and also be one hell of a bargaining tool.

    Weird how putting a new $110 battery into a bike makes it $1000 more expensive. That's a 809% profit on a battery for those interested in the math.

    Offer $3110... Actually $3080 as the battery is now used.

    I went and had a look at that ZX-10, its actually not too bad. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/bull...ne-/1205385307

    Has a crack in the fairing near the mirror attach point on the left hand side and a small few scratches on the exhaust shroud/cover. Very minor stuff on the outside. It has some horsepower adders in the way of LED lights near the intake that is a home job, so its not quite all original. The fairings that are on it are def still original. It probably is just the battery, looks like a 5 year old unit maybe more. But because of the LED's yeah there is a chance some weird issues could be happening in the electrics that will need to be hunted down. But still, minor work with some cutters to remove all that garbage and it would be stock.

    It does desperately need a new set of tires they are a million years old and have been temp cycled out.

    All in all, it is a hell of a lot of motorcycle, the guy will take 3,000 for it. It will have plenty of life left in the thing as well, it just needs a weekend of going over it, panels off and give it a clean.

    I didnt buy it because well there is a CBR1000 in Bunbury for the same price, with the same need for hunting small issues over a weekend...but it has brand new tyres on the thing and fresh oil. Which really is another 600-800 bucks. Both bikes are literal bargains. I think Ill just be buying team red as I already have a Kawasaki in the shed

    Oh and the reason he put the price up to 4000k was people were offering him 1800 bucks. He was just trying to get rid of the trolls, at 3K its still a bargain.
