    I would consider it a very good deal, based on the condition of the bike you stated, and only 30,000 miles on a 10 year old M109R.

    If you decide to buy it...congratulations in advance.

    I don't think the mileage is a big deal if the guy you're buying from has kept it up mechanically and has some sort of paperwork to back it up. The 30,000 miles averages to about 3,000 miles a year ain't bad. If your comfortable with it go for it.

    Congratulations! Woo hoo, I ride an 06, stock, and all I want to do is up grade the whole clutch to an 2011, parts for that are not too badly priced, cheaper then chrome rims. The Miles, That's okay, these bikes are strong, I get the feeling he or she did all the necessary warranty/maintenance stuff . Are there are no modifications to it that you can see. What are you paying for it? All you may need to do if it sounds good, and rides fairly smooth, is a clutch cable and tighten up the clutch tub nut, Eventually, you'll know when that job will be due. Suzuki does not have that in there books. But we all know about it once the miles tick up. Enjoy, our monster 9er!

    I would not be afraid of the milage. I would be afraid if he tells you it is completely stock, and the pic on ur sig is that bike. It also has custom exhaust and who knows what more.
    I am not a fan of that fender, but just my personal opinion is all.
    the 300 will not fit on the oem rim. U must be planning on big money for rims too.
    good luck. Hope it works out the way you want.

    Sounds good! You can get a few bucks for your stock parts as well, seems to be some crashes lately, so please post your OEM parts as you feel fit. Looking forward to your new adventure!

    I used my cell phone two weeks ago with no problems. I don't like to add apps on my phone just the basics.

    I've done a ton of 109 gearboxes... all slipping out of second gear... when test riding, click it in to 2nd, and accelerate hard.... if she doesn't slip out she's good :) worth doing, because it will cost you a fortune to have repaired....

    I think $4500 is a good deal, especially with the Cobra exhaust. I bought my first 9, which was an 06 with mods for $6k a couple of years ago. It had 18k miles and I never had any problems with it.

    I've never been a big fan of the Sumo-X rear fender, because those rear fender struts are really an eyesore to me. I just don't like the way they look on that rear fender. Also, you may want to consider the affects that not having a front fender may have on the paint on your chin spoiler, radiator shroud, and possibly how it will affect you while riding, due to any sort of debris on the road. I believe without a front fender, the front tire is going to kick back everything it picks up during operation of the bike, which could damage some things in the front of the bike, as well as irritate you while you're riding. Just something for you to consider. MeanCycles sells a really sweet looking fender for the front 21" wheel/tire combo, which is a very good match to the Sumo-X rear fender, because it wraps and hugs the front tire really well.
