    Hello all,

    Im looking to potentially buy a 2011 f800gs that has 55K miles for roughly $3500. Seems like a great deal but I know next to nothing about potential issues with a higher mileage f800. The owner says he has never had an issue with the bike and has always done routine maintenance.

    Anyone have any insight for me.

    As long as all the maintenance has been kept up these bikes run for a long time. Stator, water pump seal might need replacing soon but thats just routine maintenance. 3500 is a great deal! I just picked up an 09 with 40k and really enjoying it!

    How much do you actually ride? I figure an F800GS is good for 100K. Do you think you will actually put another 45k on it before you will want a different bike?
