Buzz,At 23,000 miles -- it's barely broke in! There's not much maintenance the owner needs to have done in 23K miles except 4-6 changes of oil and maybe an air filter replacement. The only thing I'd be concerned about is if the bike has sat for long periods of time without being run or the battery not kept on a battery tender. If so, you need to go over it with a fine tooth comb -- things like rust in the gas tank, deterioting hoses, dried up grease in the drive-train splines, etc., etc. Still, if you're mechanically inclined, for the right price it could be a sweet deal. On the other hand, if it's a lightly used, low-mileage bike, you could be looking at a REALLY sweet deal.
Well . . . I FORGET a few things. So sue me! - LOL!Buzz,
If you think that an '01 would only have needed so far was 4 to 6 oil changes, then you are mistaken. For starters the tires definitely should be changed because of dry-rot. Brake fluids and clutch fluids should have been done at least once every 2 years. It's not only the miles, but actually time that deteriorates this fluid. That is why I mentioned that a close scrutiny of the maintenance record is in order.
Then you mention rust in the gas tank? Come on man! All GL1800 have plastic gas tanks. :lol:
haha nice one..Welcome on board yah habibi.
