Hi there just got a GR650

Postby wenokaStevens » 03 Jun 2010, 19:44

Hi my name is Wenoka. I just got a GR650. I am so excited. Now my husband and I are on the search for some parts. I need a stock gas tank and side covers! I have been looking on ebay but it will kill me to pay 250 bucks for a tank considering that I got the bike for $75. I put a new battery and some new plugs and have had a blast riding her around PA. So if anyone knows where I can get parts at a decent prices I would really appreciate it.
Ride Safe and have alot of fun

I have found some local salvage yards are motorcycle specific, I got the link here somewhere.

www.moto-directory.com/salvage.asp

Looks like theres at least one in PA. Hope that helps!

Thanks so much for the info. I have my friends in MI looking for parts for me as well. Looks like a great place to start anyway. It's just hard to find reasonable prices on parts..

Welcome to the site! Where at roundabout from PA are you (west / central / east)?

I have a spare tank with no gas cap and an unknown quality petcock if you need it. The tank's a little rusty on the inside though.
go big or go home

I am in NW PA... Between Pittsburgh and Erie. This isn't my first bike, I have been riding since I was 5. It's the first one since I got married. My husband is supportive and helpful and thinks it's a scream that I am so into getting her all fixed up and pretty again. Other than finding reasonable parts the biggest problem that I am having is keeping my husband off her while I am at work..lol Mine rides better than his. Guess I am going to have to paint her HOT PINK!!!!!
