Found a 2008 that has just over 3100 miles on it and is in really great shape, cosmetically and mechanically. Wondering what’s a fair price on something like that? Thanks in advance.

$2500 would be a VERY good price. $2800 to $2950 would be a fair price, and over that would be expensive. It depends a lot on what part of the country you are in and how many good TW's are for sale there at this time.

That is heavily dependent on your local market. Could be $2500-3500. Where are you located?

Dealer in Cols Ohio has a 13 for 2995 without negotiating and had 912 miles on it, pony powersports. 3-4 small scuffs from a fall over.

Local price = Fair Market Value X Zip Code adjustment factor X seasonal adjustment factor + how anxious buyer seems to be - buyer's negotiating skills and ability to identify minor flaws.

It has stock sprocket setup on it which is 14/50. Will run tapped out about 60 mph or so, would dropping to a 48 on the rear improve that or would you have to go smaller. Not trying to reach a much higher top speed but seems to be wound tight at 50-55 mph. Oh by the way picked it up today, looking forward to putting a few miles on it.

Congratulations on the new purchase. Changing the sprocket will help. You can change the front or rear sprocket. Front sprocket is cheaper, but more work. You could go to a 15. Rear sprocket is more costly, but doesn't require taking the case cover off. A 47 would be a good place to start. FYI One tooth on the front sprocket is about the same as 3 on the rear sprocket, so it's your choice. Check the sprockets and chain carefully, if they are worn you may want to change both sprockets and put a new O-Ring or X-Ring chain for long life trouble free...

You will get used to the mechanical sounds, 55 is well within the operating RPM with stock gearing. Just my opinion, but getting gearing high enough kills the acceleration and makes off road gearing well off. Plus, it doesn't have the power to pull the taller gear, with me on it at least.
