900rrw or SP1?

Found an interesting ad on craigslist tonight and was wondering what I should do. Found a 2000 SP1 for trade with 23k miles. I know more history about this bike than the current owner does and have ridden it before but he doesn't know this. I am considering trading my 98 rr that has 16k on it but am wondering if I will end up with a known problems bike. I know everything has issues but I know every nut and bolt on my bike but love the v-twin torque. What do you all think I should do here?

Depends on how you ride it. If you do more longer trips, the 900 is the more obvious choice. Twisties etc, I'd take the RC.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

I would get the RC its a future classic!! You will not loose money on that bike IMO and sounds awesome with some pipes on it
