How long is a piece of...

Tricky one Gravy.

What kind of service history (and where) and how long ago were the bearings (Steering, swingarm, wheel) replaced?

If it has had a recent proper 10k service then 3k is a bargain...If not, you'll need another grand or more if the belt is original and FS belt tensioner is absent.

Luggage will be another £600 or more too, if you can find it.

*More knowledgeable peeps will be along soon, hopefully before your viewing*

If it this one:

That's pretty tidy. I would say it won't stick around long at that price.

He would've said if the 10k full service was done so you'll need to factor that in, not cheap. Plus the Uly hard luggage (way better than that soft stuff he has in the pictures) is up there in price.

I like it.

Yes that's the one. Looks good, spoke to owner tonight and think I will go and have a look.
I don't want luggage on it anyway at the moment..

If it checks out on the test ride and normal checks, I'd have some cash with me for the offer. I really don't think that will last long around 3k.



Good luck

Thanks, just messaged him to ask if he has any of the work you mentioned done and if he has proof. Fingers crossed !!

Gravy. I am pretty sure the forks will need rebuilding at that age/mileage too... Ring Maz before you go, ask him about the 10k service.

Being a 2007 model you shouldn’t need to look at he oil pump drive gear at that mileage.

Ah that's awesome man well done!

Steering head, swing arm and wheel bearings on that 10k service receipt by any chance?

Manuals are here too if you have trouble with the CD.

Congrats on the new family member.
