Thanks for the welcomes!
I'm excited, but trying to be cautious after looking at a Black 2011 V last night. 2nd owner, 4,099 km (2,547 miles) on it (What???? I have already ridden double that this season!) and includes Givi tall windscreen and hard saddlebags, a pit stand, and cover. And the bike is otherwise original, including the tires, brake lines, pads and fluid.
The battery was replaced last year. The bad news is that the asking price is about $1k higher than I think it should be, and the seller didn't seem willing to negotiate. He seems to think super low mileage increases value above market value. I disagree.
There is a 2011 V at a dealer an hour away with 18,500 km (11,495 miles) and includes windshield, engine guards, seat, mirror extenders, rear rack, etc that is asking $4,700. I like farkles!
A couple things to keep in mind, brake fluid should have been changed on either bike, since you didn't say the other asking price I would assume it is higher than the dealer. Several members on this forum have dealt with Inglis and from what I have heard they are a upstanding dealer.
The one I referred to is where I got my 07 from, let me say I drive to Delhi to the dealer I bought my 2015 650 ABS Versys, for parts , even when it is 5'C, and it is 5 times the distance of the Guelph one, you hit on part of the reason why, let me say since this is a public forum, I have said and been told if you don't have anything good to say then don't say anything, and that is where I will leave it.
Also many of us have found the valve shims to be off spec particularly on the exhaust, my 2015 was done by me at just under 10,000 KM, I found 1 tight exhaust and several that were just spec. This is a very expensive service, I am in the process of updating my recent valve shim in the How To Forum, however Fasteddie has also posted about 95% of what I did in the same thread.http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...djustment.html
One thing to be aware of if you pay to have it done, ask for the before measurements of each valve and the after measurements of each valve. There have been several pay for this service in the under $400 price and told everything is spec, but absolutely no measurements given to the customer, expect that some of those it was simply a money grab.
I am sure a few more members will come along with good advice, thanks for posting.
