2003 KLR, 11K miles..a good price?

Starting to get serious about getting a new KLR but need a hand.

My local dealer has both 2012's and 2013's, with the '12's being $1000 cheaper...

But he also has a 2003 with 11,000 miles and is asking $2900. I've only seen pictures but from what I can tell has no farkles and never been laid down.

Depending on what the finances dictate, is that decent mileage for a 2003? Doesn't appear to have any damage, but is there something I should look for when I go tonight to check it out?

That price is pretty good here on my island as other private sales have them running $3500 and up.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Yes it was a great deal IMHO, and a better engine....but that is prying open a possible can of worms....lol.

Whatever you buy, always think in the back of your mind the cost of a 685 kit if buying an 08 and newer.....I'm sorry to say.....there I did it....see all them nasty worms!!! Let the bashing begin....lol.

Nothing wrong with a new bike at all, just be aware of the oil issues so it's not a slap in the face IF it happens.


I did say IF!!!
