Hi guys, noob here so sorry if this is a dumb question. I'm looking to pick up an 09 R6 next weekend and I just found out that the one I'm interested in has 12k miles on it. What I'm wondering is if that amount of miles should of concern to me. Once again, sorry if this is a dumb question, just a noob here dying to ride! :)

p.s. flamesuit on.

Not at all if it was well maintained. Ask for maintenance records, and if he won't let you test ride it, ask him too, so you can hear how it sounds. That thing is still getting broken in if it has been ridden correctly

Yeah not at all bro, Id buy any 6 with over 30,000 miles and not a concern in mind except tires, chain, sprocket, and brakes... but that's perfectly normal on any motorcycle with a decent amount of miles.

Miles will always very from year round riding climate areas, to 6 months out of the year riding climate. Big help is always the maintenance records.
