Used CTX700n DCT private sale

I can get a 2015 CTX700n DCT. 1500 miles. Transferable warranty until 2021. No modifications. $3350. The price seems good, right? Should I be worried about too few miles (seems the bike sat a lot)?

Not a bad price. Plan to replace the brake fluid, oil and filters, and battery if it has just been sitting for a while. If it has been intermittently ridden, then you may only need to replace the battery.

No, I donít think too few miles is an issue. Inspect the bike and look for things like corrosion in the tank from ethanol gas sitting in it collecting moisture and pitted fork tubes from sitting in a damp garage. If you are new to bikes you can have a bike shop inspect it before purchase. The warranty is a real plus in case you have issues with the DCT transmission. The hard part is finding an honest dealer with a competent mechanic who understands it. For the money with the warranty it sounds like a great deal!!

Most people don't ride their bikes a lot. Not uncommon to find them with low miles. Do it!

The last two bikes I’ve purchased were 2014 and 2015 dct models that both previous owners were in there 70s. Both had around 2100-2300 miles on them. They needed nothing but a good cleaning but i changed the fluids and filters for peace of mind. Both owners kept a battery tender jr on them during the winter and used a fuel additive as well. Go for it and hit the open highways. These bikes are a blast

Is that low miles from sitting in a climate controlled garage (or even not controlled) or low miles from sitting next to the house under a Home Depot blue tarp? I'd pass on the second, especially in my climate.

I went ahead & bought the motorcycle. The bike looked garage kept & it was in the garage when I saw it. The battery was good. The gas tank & forks were good. The oil was changed within the last 1000 miles, but that was 3 years ago. The brake fluid & radiator coolant are original. Definitely going to change the oil & filters. Probably going to change the brake fluid & coolant. I searched this forum & there seemed to be some differing views on when to change the brake fluid & especially the coolant. Also leaning toward getting this all done at the dealer. That would save me some time & also give me a chance to check out their service. Anyway, thank you for the replies.

Based upon the age of the bike, it won't hurt a thing to do a complete transfusion of all liquids. Good luck with that!!

BTW, I'm heading up to Maggie Valley for an extended weeklong stay the end of October -- hoping to see some glorous colors while there. I'm asking you NC'ers to see what you can do to make that happen for us!!


Sadly, I can't find a hitch for my new 2020 KIA Soul so there's no chance I can bring my trike this time.
