Update 06/04/17:

SOLD: 2013 Honda MSX.

Unfortunately the time has come to part with my MSX. It's been amazing fun to own and ride, but due to a longer daily commute, I need to get something a bit bigger.

I’ve met a fantastic group of people because of this great little bike, so it’s with regret that I need to sell her.

I've owned my MSX since first registration in October 2013 and have carried out all servicing myself.

Although the mileage is a little high (32K miles), It has always been regularly serviced, filled with the best quality fully synthetic engine oil, with oil & filter changes at least every 1000 miles. MOT is until end of October 2017.

The weak point of the MSX (the crank) was replaced in June 2016 with a stronger/upgraded Finbro item and a Takegawa 143cc kit was installed at the same time. Approximately 6000 miles have been covered since the engine rebuild. She runs beautifully now.

I really hope somebody can give her a good home. She’ll reward you with many years of fun and laughs. I would much prefer her to go to one of the members here than part exchanging it at my local Honda dealership.

The list of modifications are as follows:

Takegawa 143cc kit (still registered as 125cc).

Takegawa cam.

Port matched and gas flowed cylinder head.

Finbro upgraded crank.

Heavy duty cam chain tensioner button, new tensioner rollers and engine seals (installed in 2016 with crank rebuild and 143 kit install).
