I just looked at a 95 ninja zx6r with 42000 miles. Thats right 42,000. I was pretty shocked when i saw that number. Anyway the guy is only askin 3 grand for it and it looks like a nice bike. I was gonna offer him 2500 for it. Do you think thats a decent deal or are the miles too high to even consider.

I agree with CBR. For the same money, alot less miles. But if you like it and want it...go for it.

I wouldn't go higher than $2500.... I had a(new) 87 GSXR-1100 I put 58k miles on it and was still in good shape.
Sold for $2300, and it was 9 yrs old when I sold it.

Nowadays that's not real high mileage, although a 600cc bike will probably have taken a little more of a beating(engine wise).

:iagree: :withstupi
Is he the only owner?
If so you can usually tell by the overall condition of the bike as to how well he took care of it.
Is it rusty or corroded (motor, forks and other hard parts), body good but not new, (new body or paint can hide allot) tires warn in the middle or bald on the sides?
That kind of stuff will help make the decision for me.
Use that check list posted on this forum and go from there!
