Totaled my Sprint last Friday, (don’t ask its embarrassing)
Found a 06 S3 with 10000 miles with full Arrow, rear hugger, integrated brake and turn signals tail tidy and wide gold triumph bars for 5000. Needless to say she is mine and I pick her up on Friday after the insurance check clears. I bought my Sprint back for 1300, all she needs is rims and cockpit and rt side plastic. The insurance co gave me 200 less then I paid for her with 32 miles. WoW. I ordered new Pirelli Rosso’s and tank grips for the S3 what else do I need? I got about 1000 to play with after I buy the Wife something nice. I Look fwd to the S3 forum she is black (fast color I hope)

How in the world did you find one for that cheap? KBB still says $7k. Yeah, they're not accurate, but $2k is a wide spread... Heck, an '03 still lists as $5600... They're fun bikes!

Congrats on the great find, that is a good price. I came from a Sprint before the S3 and absolutely love it! I have a Sargent seat and it is a great improvement over stock. It sits flatter so it doesn't slide you into the tank.

Get rid of the SAI and get a non-SAI tune loaded and the backfires will go away. Mine shot flames like crazy before I did it.
