    I’ve got some plans for my baby Shakira. She is a 2006 600RR Tribal Orange Edition. Stay tuned….

    This is the day we met in June of 2011 and it was love at first site. She was bone stock.

    She was in a guys basement in SE DC. It only had 4475 miles on it, and she just turned 13,000 yesterday.

    I think it will match the bike pretty good. I’ve had my eye on it for awhile now, so I figured I’d go head and pull the trigger.

    I’ve got some major home improvements going on (kitchen remodel & new roof) over the next two weeks. If I can stay under budget I’m going to get an Arrow header and a PC5 to go with the new exhaust. Maybe a Pipercross air filter too.

    Fingers crossed!!!

    I never was a fan of the dual exhaust setups but that does look super sexy.

    @dubv $500 for 7k miles with speedo and WORKING seems a bit tight on the price.. Make sure you get it tested.

    Def getting it tested! It’s the cheapest I’ve found so far… I hit C-list and Ebay weekly looking.

    Did you ever find out why the other motor puked?

    I searched craigslist in my area and olny found a 900RR motor for sale. lol (breakout the shoe horn!)

    I put some feelers out with a few riding buddies for one too. But I hope that one checks out ok.

    Damn that exhaust is sexy! I’m just the opposite of Admin, I prefer the dual tips. Do they make anything like that for the 03-06 RR’s? I love the style of the slash tip TOCE exhausts but as far as I know they only make them for the 07+

    @bambam Yeah! Some dumb ass forgot to tighten their drain plug. Then didn’t double check it when their buddy @Yanahmean pointed out the wet spot under the bike!

    @stansama you would have to call Hyperflo ans see if the 05-06 would fit your bike. Mine is an 06. You won’t regret getting it! It sounds amazing! Here is the link:

    As many of you know…. Shakira’s heart gave out the end of last summer.

    After getting the engine out I could finally get a pic of the damage caused by losing the drain plug at 150+ MPH. Still not sure about internal but as for external…

    Turns out the hole in the crankcase was larger than I thought.

    After an extensive search I finally found an engine that met my criteria…. less than 7k and less than $800. I found one in NJ for $675 with 5k. So a few phone calls and an awesome road trip (I wasn’t paying $300 shipping). So I spent less than $100 in gas and food on an 8 hour drive. I also picked up a 520 Driven sprockets -1/+2 an orange EK chain conversion, a 12 o’clock Industries speedodrd, an OEM solo cowl. Dropped her swing arm and rear sets off at the powder coater’s and picked up all new bearings for the swing arm. Yesterday I got a new air filter, oil filter, oil, and coolant.

    Hopefully today I can get her to fire up… fingers crossed. Still a lot to button up yet.
