Yay or Nay

Found a 02, one owner, rc apparently in great shape with 10k miles pretty much bone stock other than ebay blinkers. I have a 03 but it has seen several owners and has more miles. Considering buying this one and selling my 03. Of course most parts would be exchanged before I sell. Oh and price is 4600k. I need help deciding.

I bought my 03 with 15k. Great shape but has been painted and like I said several owners.

Mmmmmmm. that's a dilemma.
How much $ will you loose if you don't get a good asking price for your 03?
Personally, I like the graphics of the 02 better.

That's a good question John. I would return my 03 to nearly stock minus the hotbodies undertail, stomp grips, etc and I would probably ask 5k. I'm thinking I won't lose at all but never know.

What if you can only get 4? Would you take the hit, or sit on it?

You looking to buy . I would probably sit on it until the right one came along so I could break even. My mind wouldn't allow me to take a loss going a year older

Looking at the flat front tire and f*cked up tank pad makes me wonder tho how well this guy took care of the bike.

virgin plastic, 1/3 less miles, maybe a little better care...
Why did PO paint the plastics on a 15,000 mile bike? (your 03)

He didn't. Guy prior to him did with no explanation other than he wanted a replica. Looking very closely at the bike I cannot tell it has ever been rashed. My bike is only at 17k, haven't had it but this year.

And that is why I am considering. I want to say this bike has seen 5 owners so the unknown is killing me. It runs great and acts proper but just thought if I could get a clean one owner bike and break even or even save a little its a win win
