GTS1000 for sale in Louisiana - Fly and ride!

Postby Devonian » Fri Mar 24, 2017 4:04 pm

Yamaha GTS 1000 – 1993 - $4,450

I have owned this bike for 6 years and ride it regularly. It has only 28,000 miles on it. I have kept a full maintenance log and have added a few accessories and made a few minor improvements (all bolt-on and completely reversible.) These include a tinted touring screen, helibars, cigar lighter outlet for GPS/charging, an HID headlamp upgrade, rear brake flashing LED’s and adjustable clutch lever. I also swapped out the left-hand handlebar switch for a European one with headlamp flasher and lights on/off capability. The old one can be plugged straight back in if required. The Corbin comfort touring seat was on the bike when I bought it and both the original (pristine) seat and screen will go with the bike. The Hepco & Becker luggage racks are also a bolt-on addition. Unlike the factory accessory luggage there was no need to drill holes in the bodywork.

The bike has never been crashed or dropped. There is a small scratch on the right hand mirror and the accessory screen has a scratch which was there when I got it (both shown in photos.) The saddlebags have a few scuffs which were also there when I got them.

The bike had new tires (Pireli Diablo Rosso Corsa) and new, quality chain and sprockets (with slightly taller gearing) about a year ago. Both have less than 1500 miles on them. There are some new brake pads with the bike but the originals have plenty of wear left. Oil and filter are fresh and I just flushed the brake fluid.

If the buyer wants want it, I have a 4-2-1 header which I never fitted

As far as I know, this GTS is one of only three in Louisiana. Last October, I took it on a 1200-mile weekend camping trip to NW Arkansas and it is ready to go again tomorrow if required. You could take it across the country with no worries if you wanted. A fly-and-ride would be a great idea.

The bike has a clean title in my name with no liens. Please contact me with any questions.

I will add photos here shortly

I got mine from someone on here but I think you can still buy them new in Europe. It is a Hepco & Becker.

Price drop.

Perfect weather for a cross-country trip guys. I'll pick you up from the airport and ship the spare parts you can't carry.

I realize this is probably a bad place to post a GTS for sale as we mostly already have one. Anyhow, mine is still available. I just sold my R1100GS so no urgency - but the GTS is not getting as much use as it used to and I'd love to see her go to an appreciative new owner. She has nearly new sports touring tires and chain/sprockets so is 100% ready to ride!

Bike is still for sale. Price reduced to $4450.

Sincere apologies for dead Photobucket links. Contact me at ptu_1 at yah00 d0tc0m and I will email photos.

If rain holds off (not that I mid riding in rain but I hate cleaning all the nooks and crannies on the bike afterwards), I'll take the old girl for a spin today and top off the tank with ethanol-free.

Cheers!
Philip
