Just purchased a 2008 EX500 (Red) with 15k miles, has not run in a few years, but really nice cosmetically. Taking it apart (tins) to clean up, then hitting the carbs. I expect to learn alot here on the forum.....thanks for allowing me to join!!

Hey! I'm in Birmingham too :)
Holler if I can help you out with anything.
Will do b3 ........sent the carbs off to Ducatiman to clean, should be back tomorrow......have the bike torn down at the moment detailing it. I have lots of other bikes (EX250, GPz's, ZRX's, Vstrom) so this one gets attention when I can get to it. I'm located behind Oak Mtn HS.........

Pics of the finished product. The 500 had been in storage awhile (few years), then handed over to the nephew to play with.......he never tried to do anything with it. I bought it about 2 months ago with 15k miles showing. Gordo rebuilt the carbs to like-new status. I detailed almost every inch of the bike while it was down for the carbs. It's not perfect by any means......has a hole in the front fairing underside (I was told it fell against something sharp in the garage?) and it needs tires, but other that that, I think it "presents well". It will be For Sale when the weather warms back up down here in Dixie. Actually 60F today.....Dec 27.......crazy weather. I have a few other bikes too.........working on a little 2005 EX250 at the moment in better shape (cosmetically) than this one......it has sat-up a few months as well......carb-ectomy is in the works. Gotta keep Gordon busy, ya know..........
