That's what I get for not reading more closely. My mistake.

I agree ... probably worth between $4000 and $4500 if it's near show room clean.

Price out a new one "out the door" because Suzuki may still be offering a $1000 price cut off MSRP. No idea if that sale is still on, it may be over.

But even with $1000 off on a new bike, by the time you add back in tax, freight, set up and whatever else the dealer adds on ... could be quite a bit more than the one you're looking at.

Thanks for the info guys. It sounds like the bike is in the right price range. I'm planning to look at it this weekend so hopefully i'll be a DR owner soon!

anyways, i'm curious what a fair price for it would be? it's located in the midwest. I want to jump on it cuz its nice and you don't see many for sale around here. But i also don't want to over pay. Any input is appreciated.

Dave
The thing about the DR, it's fun for 30,000 miles; even if ya pay too much, you'll still be smilin' fer years. Well, 'cept the blue ones are fastest. Don't be thinking the gel seat fixes anything. It will just get you farther from home before you can't walk. And don't leave it sitting in the sun, it WILL cook yer nads.

Bin Der Dun Dat.

Edit for Rusty: I ran 3 sets of Trailwings on my DR, well past 'used up'. They tracked like slot cars. It was my steering head bearings. Zuki doesn't put much grease in there (read it on the internet ). (2004 w/15k miles). Although I could feel it on a stand, the load is 180* out when lifted, as said earlier.

I haven't seen that as a sig line.

I have had to eat those words a few times.

Yeh, I had all the paint stripped off in 3 min flat...but I see A LOT of sanding in my future!
Why not use oven cleaner or gasket remover to strip the paint without leaving any scratches, then go right into polishing. As you found out glass beading pitts the metal. Might be easier to ceramic coat it now... you have already done the surface prep.

Hiya, Sistah. Only took me 60 sumptin' years to figure out some things.

OBTW: My Sister (59) rides a 130hp Ducati something, very fast. When She and the BIL take off, I know they'll wait for me at the next intersection.

I saw your RR, very cool.
