2005 FZ6 vs. 2008 FZ6 Looking to buy!

In really like the FZ6 and have been looking for them. I recently found 2 that I am trying to decide on. I am hoping some will help.

Below are the posts on Craigslist.

2008 FZ6 - Black, 23,000, stock muffler. I'm can get it for $3,500, no damage besides scuff on engine. Tires are 1/2 way down I think. But good tires.


2005 FZ6.- Dark Blue, 14,500, Leo Vance Muffler, I can get it for $3,200, dent and scuff on tank and wind visor has scratches. Brand new tires and a radar detector.


Please let me know what you think.

Thanks to all those respond in advance.

FZ6doc, I'd beat the guy down with the 05 bike down on price. New tires, bikes are similar, windscreen is relatively inexpensive to replace... I reckon the bike market in your area is steady year round... you've proly already made a move by now ... I just saw you post ... let us know which bike you went with ...

I have to assume that a choice was aleady made by now, but the 2008 is the better choice. At least without seeing them in person.

The 2008 has better brakes (4 piston calipers vs 2 piston), better fueling at the beginning of the throttle.

Aftermarket exhaust is also a sign that the person who had it thought of the bike as a sportbike, and most likely treated it like one.

If the bike is maintained than the miles difference is meaningless.
