Go see the bike. If it's in good shape the price is right. Ask if he's done the valve adjustment. Depending on who you believe, it should be done at 15-20 thousand miles. Costs around $300. Be aware of that but don't run from the deal if it's not done. All other maintenance is typical and less costly.
great steal I mean deal:thumb: Take it for a test spin and report back.
fuel flange/sock is/was a common issue for many of the early Vs. (no throttle response would be tell tale sign)
Even if the lash needs done & the flange/sock needs done, $4k is a great deal on an '03
thanks for all the input fellas. I did end up getting it. Seems very clean to except for some curb rash on the sleeve that covers the stock pipe. Anyone have a stock they want to sell me? Will post a pic, looks like an easy fix :moped:
