Oooh that sounds a good price to me. Can't you kill two birds with one stone?
1. Get nice new bike
2. Get rid of nagging noise in left ear-hole
3. Attract new mate with sexy sound of triple cylinder two-stroke engine
Problem solved!
You'll thank me for this sage advice one day, and be eager to reward me with a free ride on your GT550, I'm sure. :up:

No sorry, i don't have one anymore. I traded her in for a GT380. They both whine but the GT only does it when I open the throttle, the sister did it all the time. I reckon she had something wrong with her, maybe a screw loose. Her bottom end used to make some funny rumbling noises too, followed by some heavy exhaust gasses.
Anyways, it was a good trade. The GT is a much better ride. :shock:
