At 84k on my 02 LTC, I recently dropped $2k to have all the trans seals replaced, also the slave and the clutch (ya, got it wet).
I thought they had to do a rear main but it was tranny leaks all the way.
I have some decent upgrades but not a lot, ie, ohlin shocks, HID low beam and the bmw passenger footrests, corbin seat in front, so I'm happy with the setup.
I can say my bike is running smoother and better than it ever has at 84k now. Still, its probably only worth about 8k maybe if I sold it today??
I'm not sure what I'd do, depends on money, the owner, etc. Everyone that knows me always wants my machines when I'm done with them because I keep them maintained. I have to, they are my primary transpo.
I'd always prefer to buy new if possible but there are some seriously juicy deals on nearly-new bikes in the classifeds here all the time.
