Thinking of a used LT

Seen some nice LT's for sale lately at decent prices. Bike like 4-5 years old.
I've never owned a LT. Thinking of buying a used one.
Have there been any major changes in them? Any reason to stay away from certain years?

Any tips ,advice, things to look out for etc appreciated. Larry

Re: Thinking of a used LT

I have an 2003 model and love it. Absolutely wonderful bike. The 2005 and newer models have several improvement that others will know more about. I know that the front rake was changed to make slow speed handling better, although I do not have any issues with mine. They also had the hydraulic center stand and a different instrument layout.

Have a great ride,

Yes there are some good deals out there. I found my 02 mld on craigslist earlier this year for $7500, and that was with only 20k miles and new metzler tires. Just shop around and you should find a good deal on one, and you'll love the bike.
