I purchased my 2007 last August with about 1000 miles on the ODO. No farkles except for a gel saddle and a K & N filter, and comfortably within your target price range. 3200 miles into my ownership, I've not been bothered by any of the frequently mentioned engine-related issues- idle set too low, fuel mapping, etc... so either: A) I got lucky, B) The original owner addressed them all during his 1000 mile ownership experience, C) These issues still exist, I'm just oblivious, or D) These things were sorted through fairly well by Suzuki by the '07 model year. Whatever the case, I love the bike, and the absence of these issues allowed me to get straight to the sorting out of what I needed to tailor it to my riding style/requirements.
suzuki gel saddle & alaska sheepskin buttpad, K&N, rick's mirror extenders, grip puppies, powerbronze tall touring windscreen, madstad bracket, givi e460 top case, givi e36 side cases, rick's fork brace & rick's wheel spacers, givi crash bars, aprilia tuono mirrors, and sw motech center stand, and, as of 9/9/10, rick's footpeg & controls lowering kit.
