So another $500 in parts and labor. $3800 for an 06 us a good deal - but not a steal. I'd seriously look at getting it though for that price.

Re: too good to be true?

~$500-700 under the average isn't a steal. it's a GREAT deal though. personally, i think ~$3200 for a titled - in good shape - bike is a steal. if all it really needs is a valve adjustment, then that's a ~$400 job or so. if it's not just valves, you could be screwed.

Re: too good to be true?

It could be if it all it needs is a valve adjustment.

Great deals are out there, I got my 08 R6S with 7k miles for $2300, repairs cost all of $100.

The rims are also 2007, if he replaced it because they were damaged in the accident it could have been something serious. It says negotiable, so if you can get it for under $3k then would be a steal

I don't think anyone would trust you with a gun.
