I bought one (same year/ model) off e-bay last July. It had approx 2500 miles on it. I had only one thing go wrong- the ECU went bad on me, and had to replace for $900. This was the DP ECU model, necessary because it had the performance filter and pipes. Other than that it has been the most fun to ride of all the bikes I have owned (6 Yamahas and an SV-650). I was coming from a FJR 1300, so it seemed a bit small at first, but the lightness and manoverability quickly put that thought to sleep! I recommended it.
