I have a streetfightered '97 TL1000-S that recently developed and engine problem - pouring smoke from the exhaust. I'm guessing it's a holed piston from running way lean, but that's just a guess.

Here's the Craigslist posting with the details. http://stlouis.craigslist.org/mcy/1364335735.html

I'm looking to trade for... well, I'm open to suggestions. I was hoping for something like a middleweight dual sport, really, anything working/running will be considered, two wheels or four. (Or more.) (No less, please.)

Offers to trade for a wad of greenbacks also considered.

Whaddaya got?

You mean a for-serious kart, or a backyard putter? Details on the former would be welcome. I don't have much use for the latter (don't think the gf would appreciate me tearing up the lawn we just bought).

Only in GRM land is a dual-sport considered practical transportation

If I ever decide to get serious on my suicide plans I'll trade you my 03 katana.

Hey man, if I throw some bags on, say, a KLR650, I'll be riding all year long. I have evil plans for making a set of bags out of cheap plastic toolboxes. And with a proper bike (ie, one that takes knobbies), this may just be the year I stud some tires and ride in the snow.

somewhere between..... role cage, 6hp, 2 sets of offroad tires. 30mph as it sits.

I was thinking about bolting a sled engine to it.

Solid hex axle rear, and minimal front suspension.

probably not worth the bike...but I'll throw it out there

looks similar to this one

Heh heh. Under other circumstances, I'd be all over that. But the motor gods have dealt me a cruel hand lately, and I'm dreadfully short of working motorcycles. That situation must be rectified.
