I am looking at a 2006...any problems?
The 2006 has a carb are the newer ones F.I.?
What should I look for (problems?) if buying a used one?
thanks, Doug
Do NOT buy a 2006 SD, as the 2005/6 were all grey mkt bikes in the US. Only the '07-on bikes are US spec bikes (plus, they have a bigger fuel tank & radial brakes). ALL superdukes are fuel injected - if someone is selling you a "carbed" one, just walk away.
I'm 6'3", so I put on the 18mm bar risers, and it fits perfectly.
Check out for more than you ever wanted to know about the SD.
Ahhh, the internet, where all things go to die.

R1200ST and some expensive bicycles.
