Don't know the owner but when I bought my '12 Wee in August, I went to my Suzuki Dealer and asked "if I give you the VIN to a bike I recently purchased, could you tell me if the stator recall was done?" Well, they punched the VIN into the computer, printed out the service history (which wasn't done at that dealer) On the print out was the previous owners name & address. I mailed him a letter & he was happy to call me. We conversed for a 1/2 hour about the history of the bike, why he got rid of it (sold it to buy a 1k), etc.

'12 Glee, Metallic Fox Orange, '98 DR350, CMA #183680

That's the bike I just bought the same day you posted this. Doing a fly and ride first weekend of April to bring home to VA.

P.S. - owner is the owner of the shop, Spectrum Motors.

I was just about to post the same thing. Hopefully you both didn't buy it along with a few others.

Sorry, just making trouble, i'm 5% sure everything is fine.

Funny someone did all those mods and then only rode it 4k miles...must not have scratched his itch?

I have many of the mods...Oxford heated grips, Ravetech skid plate (different model), bar risers, MIVV slip on (with an Arrow collector). Looks at first glance that mods were done well. Check the wiring on your grips and lights...some people can really mess that up. Enjoy your ride home!

Thanks 2thDr. One of my mods will be to add the Arrow collector as well. Did you need to address fueling with those changes? Will do on the wiring.
