What do you guys think of a 1999 w/ 62k miles on it? Anything to watch out for?

I'd make sure it had been maintained properly, obviously. See how long it's been since a major service. If it hasn't had a clutch ($1,500), I'd count on replacing it sometime soon. I'd have a dealer inspect it, especially the ABS control unit (if it has ABS), pivot bearings in the final drive, wheel play, throttle cables, battery, rear transmission mounts for cracking, etc. If it's got the original shocks, figure on spending $1,000-1,700.

Tell all the facts. Like the asking price, color, options, stuff on the bike. That way we can evaluate it versus other bikes with various mileage and help spend your money.

Could be a good deal, or a stinker. Not enough information.

I saw an older one either in Denver or Salt Lake paper that had like 2,500 miles on it...

The '99 is black and looks good, $4k. I would not even buy it for that price if it needs $thousands put into it in regular maintenance. How can a clutch be $1500?? That's more than a 911 by about triple if you do it yourself.

I have also found an '04 BCR w/ low miles that I am going to look at if it's not gone already. I'll keep you all posted.

've got one for sale here in Woodland Hills... Rapidog knows it...
ABS, silver blue 2002
I've done a couple of thousand mile days on it without the hand-buzz getting to me... and I'm a sensitive guy:-)
Proper throttle body synchronisation and valve adjustment is a key there...


I have a lot of goodies for it, but engine is stock - no chip, stock pipe, etc.

Biggest advantage is that we have both low bars and high bars for it and several seats and windscreens, so you can outfit it to suit your corpus from an ergonomic standpoint.

(Wife has an R11S also, so between us we have explored the options.)

Bags & bag mounts, city lids and touring lids, blah blah blah

Drop me an email or call... I am currently available during the week during the daytime a fair bit if that suits your fancy.

To those of you who have tried various grip changes and options to try and reduce the buzz, including wraps and other squishy options- how have those affected your heated grips? Can you still feel them? I would hate to have to use tape, foam and other wraps to finally make my grips comfortable, and then discover that my heated grips are functionally useless.

Hey guy. I am really picky about the vibrations coming through my bars. I have Rapid's bar backs which I think have helped me loosen my grip and I use these things called Grip puppies from: casporttouring.com.
If you get them order the small size, I ordered large initially and they were too big. The small ones take a little effort to get on but once they are on they minimize vibration more and the heat from the grips still gets through fine. In fact once they get warm I think they retain the heat better. You can't wear thick winter gloves though. Olympia's cold throttle gloves (newenough.com) has great prices on them and the grip puppies are the perfect combination in colder weather. I'm sure BMW's Gore Tex gloves would be great too at 3 times the price.
Hope that helps.
