I am looking at a 2009 Monster 1100 to possibly buy.
Mint condition, adult owned, garage kept. 8500 miles. Custom paint and graphics. Aftermarket seat and exhaust. Red Chain, crash bobbins, tinted windscreen, Dunlop Q-3's. 7500 mi service complete. Carbon fiber inner rear fender, tank cover, dry clutch cover, air box inlets. Many red anodized pieces.
They want $5600. i'll offer $5000.
Are these bikes bullet proof ?? What kind of problems should I look for ?? I WILL ask for service history !! Heard this is vital !!
I have the EVO with 19k miles. I've had some premature maintenance issues, but nothing I couldn't handle at home: chain stretched, starter died, stator died, kick stand switch died. The only issue was that the last 3 happened on the road and I was stranded.
