Re: Buying a 2007 LT with 10,000 miles on it. Anything to watch out for on this year?
Make sure you find another service tech. "... rear seal problem was due to people over loading the bike and possibly towing at the same time."
Reports of ABS failure are rare here. If I remember correctly, trick is to make sure the fluid is pumped by standing on the brakes to exercise the ABS, Changing the brake fluid does not make sure that fluid contacting the ABS has been drained.
there is a way to check the clutch by getting into 5th and then nail the gas to see if the clutch can hold with the extra torque at a low speed for 5th. Rare to see a report of a late year model, especially with low miles, to have a clutch taken out by leaking seals or leaking master cylinder.
Bee on guard for becoming infected with "Ride Em Cowboy" fever if you buy an LT.
Remember new comers here have to wait at least 6 months before they ask what is the best oil? what are the best tires?

OH!! Yes, they all smoke when you first start them if she was on the side stand. The speedo, by design reads about 10% higher than your actual speed. And it will look as if she is about to hit the temp red line before the fans kick in.
