    Hello My name is Troy. I am living here in Utah.

    Love the Forum. I am looking to purchase my first TW. Does this sound like a good deal or to many miles?

    Thanks in advance!

    Miles are not high at all, and assuming the condition is as stated, that's a good deal.

    Ask lots of questions! What kind of maintenance has been done? Previous issues? Original owner? Break-in period? It is a good deal but you can always try to knock off $100 buck or so.

    Sounds like a good deal if all is in good shape. Here are some points to check that may allow a bit of bargaining:



    Take a close look at the chain and sprockets. At 3200 miles, the stock chain and sprockets are probably showing wear. A new chain on old sprockets adds no value. Chain, sprockets, gasket, lock washers, and oil run $75-175 with tax and/or shipping, depending on sourcing, type, and quality.



    At 9 years old, and having been stored for 3 years, expect to need a new battery really soon. Batteries run $25-$80 depending on sourcing, type, and quality.



    Tires are 9 years old. Check for any signs of dry rot or checking on the tire or Schrader valve. Tires, tubes, and rim strips run $150-300 depending on sourcing, type, and quality.

    Ive been watching KSL all summer. If its in good condition it is at the price point that seems to sell right away.
