My 05 has about 13k on it and a friend of mine has an 05 with 20k+ they are both still going strong.

Don't be too concerned with how many miles are on the bike, be more concerned about how it was taken care of. Ask for service history.

The only problem Kawis tend to have is that cam chain tensioner goes bad.

thats good to hear. i actually know the kid who has the bike up for sale. i dont think he rode it to hard. im going to make sure i give the bike a test ride first and go through all the gears just to make sure its not makin any sounds.

I wouldn't be too worried about mileage. One of the riders near me had an 05 with 60,000km on it when it got stolen.

I put up a post awhile back in the buying section about what to look for when buying a used bike. I will bump the post back to the top so you can find it easier.

Look over all these things before purchasing... may save you $$$ in the long run.

Good luck.
