First time poster, long time rider.

Hadn't ridden a gixxer in eons when through odd circumstances I came to own two of them in the same month.

An 05 600 that had been in storage (properly) for four years.

And a salvage, slightly wrecked 07 600. Hit in the rear. Mostly cosmetic damage. Runs fine but gonna need plastic surgery.

I've worked on a lot of different sportbikes so I should be able to help some folks out.

Here's the salvage title 07 with its new tail and fairings. Only issue is the speedo/odo are not working. Rest of the cluster works. Going to swap out the speed sensor and cross my fingers. Don't want to buy a cluster.

Here's the 05 Anniv. edition. Owned by an army guy. Army moved it for him from VA to TX then to GA. It sat for 4+ years (he did it right, fresh oil prior to storage, gas drained, a little oil to coat the tank sides, on stands most of the time). He wasn't mechanically inclined so hesitant to sell it on CL. I went over it completely. Fresh gas and a battery and came right back to life. Changed the plugs and coolant just to have a reference point of when it was last done. Dealer did the brake recall since it hadn't been done. Really nice but set up for a shorter rider. I'm 6'2" and i sit on it like a jockey at the Kentucky Derby
