Sounds like you have a low kms keeper there.Feed her good oil and let the turbo cool after a run and there are many miles of boosting pleasure down the road.
wasn't realy looking for a CXT but when my bubby told me he knew about a old honda for sale I could not resist a look see. Could not believe what I saw when I got there. my buddy said this guy was out of work had no mony and liked to drink a lot. he said he wanted $2500 but did't think he would get that much I offered $1500 and he jumped on it I should have said less he was to eager. Although I don't think I would part with it for 3 times that. now if I can only get that turn signal the bike will look like new.

Be sure and post it here if you decide to sell, I will double your money or better, this is better than the stock market and no capital gains.

Did the brakes already, all locked up from sitting, work great now. luckly he started the bike from time to time and it seems to run great no rust in the tank at all and a new set of plugs and an oil change did wonders, working on getting the new turn signal and have emailed showkey about that and he said he can get me the parts, then is just a long wait for spring to ride.
