    Project 2004 XB9S

    Hi, my name is Carsten, from Auckland, New Zealand
    and I have just bought myself a bit of a project,

    04 XB9S with 13,961km on the clock

    it's a non-runner at this stage. has a fuel issue which i suspect is the fuel pump,
    but I wont know for sure till its delivered (starts and runs with squirt of gas down the intake)
    it's missing a few bits, nothing major, just needs a TLC

    I've already started buying parts that i can see are missing,

    just finding i hard to decide what colour it will be when its done

    I can tell by the forks and the rear shock color. The 4th and 5th digit in you vin will be WX which denotes that it is a low model.

    That is a stock headlight.
    Did you get it running and if so, what was the problem ?

    it's actually a pair of flood lights set up to look stock. sadly no beam pattern so aren't legal/fit for use on NZ roads.

    had two real issues. bad fuel pump and stuck closed injectors

    and a few missing bits

    haven't had to do the compliance for a vehicle here yet.
    but it seams simple enough ... basically just checking the bike isn't stolen and is road worthy and a bit of cash for the government

    Since you said you were from New Zealand, I can't HELP but to read all your posts in a Kiwi accent

    Bike looks great! Is the registration process hard over there?
