I was hoping for some buying advice too...
I am looking at a 2007 Wee with ABS and 47K miles, he's got probably about $1800 in farkles and claims it is in great shape and well-maintained with "most"
So is it reasonable to expect to get fairly trouble free miles from Wee with this many miles or am I rolling the dice here? Thanks for any help.
Take it for a ride, if it goes well, starts easily, doesn't have any 'odd' sounds (bearing in mind that wees seems rattle anyway) and looks unmessed about with then thats all in its favour. I personally wouldn't have a problem buying a bike with that mileage, if you search the forums it seems that many go well beyond that.
Just a thought, check for rounded off nut heads, damaged allen key heads, missing fasteners and other 'bodged' bits which may be the result of a shoddy owner/service agent, if you find anything like that then leave it alone. In reality, if the bike has been serviced properly and ridden well it should ride pretty much as it did when new.
And of course look at chain, sprocket, brake pads and tyres.
Oh, and also ask the previous owner if he has any shims left over from the valve check, if he has any then at least you'll know the valve clearance has been checked!
I seem to have gone on a bit, hope that helps.
