I just bought a 2002 750 Dark and I was curious, should I have bought a 04 620. The Dark was 1499.00 (5000.00 )less than the 620 (6499.00). 960 miles vs new.
I bought a 3 year warranty for 950.00 plus the 4 months it still has from the factory.
Thanks,

Tom. :D

Re: 2004 620 Dark

Actually, no... you made a HUGE mistake. You should buck up and sell me the 750 (at a marginal loss, of course) and buy the 620. Yeah, that's it! ;)

That's a lot of coin for an extended warranty. Seems excessively conservative to me. Of course my bike doesn't have the new electronics with their associated gremlins :-/

I've had two failures in 13000 mi. The switch in the brake lever went tango uniform and I developed a very slow leak on the H cylinder between the head and barrel.

I've put a lot more than a grand into the bike in mods and services, but the warranty won't help with that.

Re: 2004 620 Dark

When I bought my bike, my dealer offered me $6719 out the door for either a 2003 620 or a 2002 750

620 had 1 mile on the odometer, unfortunately, the 750 had twice that!

even though the 750 had twice the mileage, I decided to get it anyways.... ;D

Re: 2004 620 Dark

"I love my 02 750 Dark." If I bought the 03 620 that I was wrestling over at the time I made my decision... I'd be saying, " I love my 03 620 Dark."

Love the one your with...

Ride Safe,

Nope... 750 was a good call. 620's a vag-mobile (kidding)

Re: 2004 620 Dark

I dunno about the 620's vs. 750's specifically, but there is a decent difference in "real world power" between the 620's and 800's. My 800 is by no means a super powerful bike, but when I get on the throttle it is a bit explosive. The 620 however, just doesn't have the same kick. You can chop the throttle in first as hard as you want on a 620, and it will just go faster with very little drama, on the 800 your front wheel would be way up in the air. Considering that the power of your 750 is more in-line with my 800 I think it was probably a good purchase.

Re: 2004 620 Dark

My two pennies...Your story is exactly what I am looking for. I have decided to go with a pre-owned M750 over a new M620. As some of you may know I am a big guy (See: BIG Question post) and for some reason I feel more comfortable on a 750...just sitting on it...mental thing, I know. Well I take the MSF course in June and hopefully within 6-8 months I will be buying...a decent M750 Dark for right around $5,000...I have found many at this price. Wish me luck!

I reckon the only real disadvantage you'll have with the older 750 is on resale value in a few years time. You might end up trying to sell a 5 year old bike instead of a 3 year old bike, even though they are both "brand new" right now.

If you're not planning on selling it anytime soon, that doesn't matter :)

I've got a '99 750 (shiney black, not a "dark") and I don't think I'd swap it for a 620... The fuel injection might be nice, but I've got a FactoryPro jet kit in mine and got it dyno tuned to get the jetting nailed, and apart from a little "crankyness" while cold, I can't believe the injected one would fuel significantly better.

Sounds to me like you got a pretty good deal on the bike (I'm not too sure about the deal on the 3 year warranty...), get out there and ride the thing!

big (Oh, and decide what pipes you're gonna fit!)
