Question What to ask?????

What do I need to ask about or need to know about a 2002 VEE 1000. This is the description.

"2002 Suzuki V-Strom 1000. Grey. Great condition. Very well maintained. Extra windshield, soft rear cargo bags, expandable tank bag. Renthal bars. 33,800 miles. "
Help would be great. I curently ride a cruser and know zip about the V-stroms.

Mileage, maintenance records, clear title, and a test ride.

That's at least were I would start.

What Tige said, maintenance records. Have the valves been run?

It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow.

Has the original clutch basket been changed out? This was the only real issue with the 2002 year and part of the 2003 year run. No other issues.

This isn't Strom specific but it's still a great site about what to look for in used bikes. Definitely worth a read!
