Would you even wast your time??? he wants 4100 but i plan to offer a few hundred less. what do you guys think. Keep in mind this is my first honda, coming over from kawi.lolol

Re: Guys i need your help.

Ask about valve adjustments and CCT engine wise (aside from basic maintenance)

With that mileage, and if its _spotless_, $3,800 max

954s are great bikes through and through

Re: Guys i need your help.

Thanks man, he also has some dyno shets that show it was still pulling 132hp with 37xxx on it. If that means anything.

Re: Guys i need your help.

Are you in Raleigh in Essex, UK?

If so, get him to confirm that the forks were sorted as there was a recall as the bottom casings were being affected by the salt and could eventually lead to them breaking (I doubt the rest of the world was affected but its worth looking into).

Has the bike ever been down before? Check the usual places (Clutch/brake levers, mirrors, bar ends, end can and the fairing panels for any scratches etc)

Hows the service history?

Re: Guys i need your help.

I'd start with $3500, only because I'm a cheap git and want everything cheap

You'll probably get it for about $3800 if you push it hard enough.
