I have 2005 GS, with almost 50 000km on it, and no major problems so far.
ok I had some issues with final drive bearings, but I believe this was my, and my mechanic fault. Brakes are squealing, but so what? They are working fine, and I cannot imagine riding w/o ABS. Maybe it`s because I haven't reached expert off road riding level. The same story goes to servo brakes, well actually I like the, especially in "on road" conditions. From my point of view all you have to do before buying is to have a good inspection before buying and that`s it.
