Too much or not enough

I am looking at KLRs and need a little guidance. Here in Ontario Ca a new 650 KLR is $5999. I have been looking at used ones but there is so much difference in what people want for price.
Newer 2011 up with low milage they want over $5000 and some over $6000
The 2008 and 2009 seem to be in the price of $3500 to $4500. The milage is anywhere from 8,000km to over 100,000 km. The average seem to be 20,000 km.

I understand there was a body style change in 2009 so is this the first gen second gen split. Are we into a third gen now.

So I am kind of wondering what a lot of Km on a bike is. Don`t know if I should go new or used but realize used will have accessories already installed.

Thanks
RR

I went for a low 7000km 2003 because I put about 20K on a season. You should be able to get one for under 3500 here in Ontario on Kiji. First gen went to 2007, 2008+ is second gen. Some 2008 have a bad oil buring issue. Lots of used bike buying guides (google it) but I would look at the condition of the bike. Chain, body etc..does the user take care of it. PO should know his oil changing schedule by heart, was the doohickey done, just ask a lot of questions and then haggle...they will always drop the price.

San Diego cl has a 2006 with 37k miles for $1500. I looked at it yesterday if you want to know about it. Lots of extras.

Sorry, that was dumb. I thought you were in Ontario, CA!

Thanks for the comments guys. I have been reading kijiji daily and I am sure the right one will come along. The one in Sudbury is priced right.

There are some nice ones not far from me. Just need to get cash in my hand before I actually go look at one.
