Default settled on a 05' switchback 600

outside of needing the usual maintenance and clean up of clutching/valves/carbs it seems to start and run fine and has 125 ish on both sides.

no visible cracks , scraps , and all suspension components look great and front end is tight and all radius components straight etc.\

track looks great.2 inch riser on it and a can on it outside of that appears well taken care of and stock.

speedo cable stopped working near end of season and 1 hand warmer crapped out.thats the bad.

@900 usd I think its a relative steal as long as theres nothing hidden I have not seen or am aware of, but compressions great and started right up and idled perfect.I know the guy who is selling it to me and the previous owner, his brother, is a riding buddy of mine and long time friend of the family.2 tanks of gas has been burnt since the speedo failure.coming from anyone else id call bullshit, but knowing these guys well since childhood, I feel confident its accurate.

Few pics of the new to me back up beast ' for next season.deals done.i pick her up on Tuesday afternoon then let the tuning and cleaning begin lol. best of all its only 5 min drive away to pick up.

I have all the clutching/gearing/calibrated tach left over from my rmk 6 the same year that will be put on right off the top.

should be a solid sled for a couple years.

Not sure if your aware of it or not but Don’t forget to do the driveshaft bearings this summer. First sign is speedo stopping. The bearing let’s go and the shaft movement breaks the little Speedo Drive key.

Good find for the price

in theory it should.still got the weights/clutching/calibrated tach. I doubt it will though but who knows.
