High Mileage

I am looking at purchasing 2006 FZ6 with 24,000 miles, $4,200 OBO
more details below.

What engine or drive train problems lie ahead?
How many miles will these engines go?
How much should I plan on spending in the 1st year?


One owner Candy Red, Fuel injected inline 4 cylinder
ONE ADULT OWNER, GARAGE KEPT, NEVER DROPPED, ALL HIGHWAY SPEED LIMIT MILES
Considered Excellent Condition
24,xxx miles gentle miles, never red lined, rarely over 7-8k rpms.
55-57 mpg's highway.
oil & filter changed every 3k miles, plugs changed, air filter changed 2009.
Approx. 300 miles on newer Bridgestone Battleaxe BT021 tires.
Frame sliders, yamaha touring windscreen w/ extension & stock short windscreen, nelson rigg saddle bags.
Negotiable price, title in hand.
Pics show both stock and as I used touring (with tall windscreen and saddle bags)

No known problems. Very bulletproof motor
As many as you ask them to with proper maint. and care
as much as you can afford, mods come quick and most don't come cheap!

high milage is possible means no high pick up is possible.because milage reduces the pick up of the bike.

Don't let the high mileage bother you. I have 65245 miles on my '06 FZ6. Other than tires, I have only had to replace the chain at 53000 miles (dealer said sprockets looked like new).

If you buy, I suggest you break in this gently ridden bike as if it were new. Definitely start using the revs the engine was designed for, but hang on tight when you do!!!

And also ask to see the service history, talk is cheap!

I bought a 2004 with a little over 12k on it a few years ago.. it's got almost 20k on it now. Just had to put tires on it. Love it.
