Not mine, unfortunately, but asking for a good friend. Bike is littered with factory titanium and aluminum bolts/washers, Showa kit suspension, RG3 triples, RC4 stamped PC pipe and OG carbon silencer, unobtainable pieces, etcetera. Not 100% sure, but I believe it has a tight ratio SX transmission.

Way under-priced at $6k! Tell your buddy to not lowball himself if he wants to sell it, someone's gonna happily pay big bucks for that as it stands. That thing is littered with factory parts!

To the right person, probably 12k. I worked for another Suzuki factory rider locally on his practice bikes the same years as that bike pictured. Many of the pieces are legit factory pieces that were never available to the public. One good thing is that Roger is no longer at Suzuki to those parts are safe! That is a trick machine that would bring a lot of money when presented to the right person. (I know of a collector with seemingly bottomless pockets and if hes serious about selling it then send me a PM)

Seems like a screaming deal at $6k. If I were the owner I'd be asking for more.

Cool bike. I wouldn't sell it.

Plot twist: Anyone know what a serial like RC041S would mean? If I'm not mistaken, RC only rode the RM250 for 2005 SX, going to the 450 for outdoors and 2006 SX/beyond...

What's the deal with the rear brake? It's not a regular 05 rear caliper, almost looks like one off a '97? Or is it a factory unit.
