Don't sell, good things await, and as you say, you will have bandwidth in 12 months. Sell, you will regret it.

Patience!

Since I purchased this nice GRiSO in April 2017 I could put on 200 miles only. No time to ride.

I should have more time to spend on a bike in a year or so ...

Keep it. It would be a real shame to have put all that effort into it for someone else to enjoy. and in several years from now you'll regret having lost it for something as trivial as your current lack of time to enjoy it. Not to mention, with the upgrades you've made you'll never get out of what you've already put into it and then will have a tough time starting over again once you do have the time to enjoy it.

Yes, I agree. And the probability of keeping it is much higher than selling it ;-)

Still, I'm trying to find a "lucky one" who would enjoy this bike as much as I do.
Last year I sold a nicely refurbished 2002 Ducati 748S (matte titanium color, the one with the red rims) after enjoying it for several years. It went to the Chicago area and I lost most of the money I invested in upgrades. However, the new owner is still sending me emails about the exceptionally good quality of that bike. And that is a very good feeling for me. Despite of the financial loss ...

Where did you get that tail tidy for the GRiSO?

I sympathize, I've had years where I just couldn't ride. I'm not here to tell you what's best in your case, but I had a year recently I just couldn't ride. I was super bummed, why am I paying insurance on this machine I can't use? It's losing value every year and it's just sitting there. Ultimately, I kept mine. I've gotten to ride quiet a bit this season and I'm glad I kept it. Either way that's a freaking beautiful machine, so if you keep it, good - it's lovely. If you decide to sell .... hopefully someone gets enjoyment out of it.

This is the GRiSO Rear Fender Eliminator Kit from GuzziTech.
It works well with the license plate frame with integrated LED light that is from GuzziTech too.

I'm considering selling the GRiSO and thinking about putting it back to stock and selling the Ipothesys exhaust and oil cooler relocation kit separately. Any interest? Still only a couple hundred miles on the system.

$1000 seems fair.
I could maybe sell the bike for $1000 less than I paid for it and not lose too much?

Does sound fair. Did you get the map sorted for it?

Id like to see the black chrome exhaust after a few years of heat cycling. I had a black chrome system(aftermarket) on a Yamaha years ago and it looked really great when new but after a years got dull and shitty looking. I tried all sorts of cleaners and methods to keep it nice but wound up just using header paint in satin black to make it presentable. Defiantly not the same a regular chrome.
