Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. So seems if 1st service valve ck at ~10k is done then most likely clearaces are good to about 25k miles./

After ridinng a '05 950 Adv with 18k and an '07 990 with 29k, I am of the mind set to move into the newer years and pay the price for mileage under 10k. The '05 seemed very weak under 6k rpm then livened up even with FMF mufflers. The '07 ran well thru the RPM range. On the '07 the owner had gone up 3T on the rear sprocket to 45T. The bike was quite lively and well equiped and price firm at $7600. I was tempted but I really want near new condition. That first 20 to 30k miles are the primo miles and I'm willing to pay more to move into a '10 or '11 model.
