Re: Dealer service verification by VIN
I hate to jump to conclusions but I always do anyway. So far, from what you have said about this owner, I would proceed very carefully. Do not allow your excitement in getting a new bike cloud your judgement. It appears he has already given you wrong information. Also if I wanted to sell a bike I would find time to answer all the buyers questions and make them feel comfortable that they know what they are buying. Unfortunately as one of my favorite proverbs states,"Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery, but let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals." Try and find the sellers that will be honest. These bikes need to be maintained regularly and if not the consequences can cost you plenty in terms of dollars, time and frustration. There are lots of LT's available for sale that have been maintained so do not deal with an owner who does not have or know the maintenance history. Granted some bikes have several owners and their histories get cloudy but numerous owners can also be cause for caution. Now that these bikes are getting older proper maintenance is even more key to their healthy survival.
