Another 'blade with high kms' thread
First let me start by introducing myself, my name is Andrew - I live in Melbourne Australia, and looking at getting a 929RR (been missing not having a bike).
Anyhow, I've been looking at a few bikes and the one I think is the cleanest is also the right price. Its all original, receipts for everything since he bought it at 30K Km, including every 5000KM service. Its got a good chain, sprockets look good, no visible engine leaks and the engine feels strong and responsive. Gearbox also feels good, though probably didn't thrash it as much as I should of during the test ride. Comes with a roadworthy to boot.
Now the major negative is it is a relatively 'high KM bike' (75,000 Kms). It also has a full Micron exhaust (usually a positive), but no power commander. He bought the bike like that at 30K Kms, and is unsure whether the ECU was re-mapped for the exhaust.
Ive done the search for 'High KM blades', and seen that good examples of these can last quite a bit. I've looked at a few blades with 35K - 45K Kms, and this bike, even with high kms, seems cleaner and better looked after.
What should I expect of a 75,000 km 929RR blade? I know the valve clearances need to be checked (I can do that myself). Anything else major coming up? What is considered 'high kms' for one of these bikes?
