Yamaha XVS650 Help.....

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by Gypsy, Feb 16, 2006.

  1. Guys,
    I was looking at a Yamaha XVS650 today and just wanted a bit of advice/help. It has 70k on the clock and is a '97 model. Don't know if that is a lot or not, and what kind of condition the motor would/should be in after that distance. What are some things I should keep an eye out for? I'm not expecting a bike in showroom condition, but what things should alert me to any trouble I may be getting into. The bike is priced at $5900 and comes with 3mths rego. The bike shop will deliver to my place if I want, and this is included.

    Is this a decent buy? Or should the 'low' price alert me to some underlying problems the bike might have? Any other information on the XVS650 is very much appreciated.

    Thanks All.....
  2. $4,600 is about all it's worth
