Hi Folks - Thought I'll drop in and say Hi...After riding sport bikes for over 15 years, I'm contemplating in picking up a Vstrom.

I'm looking at a 2007 Vstrom 650 with approx 22km. Bike is in very good shape and rides very well. However, it looks the valve maintenance has not been done and it will be due for a rear tire very soon (will also replace front tire as I noticed a slight cracking in the tread). The bike currently has a Givi top box along with the frame bars.

1) As such, what do you guys think is a fair price to pay? Oh, the oil changes have been changed every 4km.
2) What can I expect to pay for a valve check/work? Any recommendation for a good shop in Sydney?
3) What type of tires are you guys running? I suspect my riding will be mostly on pavement.

Any input is greatly welcomed!

Gidday mate and welcome,an 07 in real good nick just judging from the bike mags on the shelf $7k thats a real big ballpark figure though,spankers are going out at $9's with on roads--the 07 came with the Givi panniers as a run out deal--are the side pans included in the deal as well as the top box--Don't fret about the Valve check My 08 is coming up 24k and the local suzi mech said starting ok running ok leave it alone till maybe 35/40k at least--air filter and treat it to a set of plugs,tyres--like a box of chocolates--I'm happy with bridgestone battle max/99% sealed riding.
