Seems too good to be true. Best priced 650 I have seen recently.
Priced according to aesthetics.

Well...yeah it is, but for $3800 I'd be lookin at a 2- or 3- yr. old KLR with something like 10K on the clock--if ya keep it apples and apples, an '07 KLR (last yr of the 1stGen models) with 19K on the odo might realistically fetch $2500 or so, depending of course on farkles and seller motivation. But yeah, I gotta agree with ya, that is a well-priced F650

I don't think I have what it takes to be a Cultist like money, for example

I do believe that F650 is pert near ready for a water pump (aren't they known for going out at the 20K mark?), and if those are OEM wheel bearings I'd be changing them most ricky-tick. Not that big a deal, I guess, and there are lotsa guys on the Chain Gang forum with 100K+ on their F650s. I think they got real familiar with the water pump replacement process along the way tho...

62K on my KLR and still on the original waterpump and wheel bearings, knock on wood

Bearings need more water & mud crossings.

Well you see.... I use a little different wrench on my axles, so maybe that's why mine seem to last (or maybe because they never get to turn?)



Vs.
