I'm looking to purchase this bike. It has 52k miles on it. It looks solid. Are the miles for the model excessive?

That is quite a lot for a bike, but sometimes it is better to have a bike used regularly and serviced than to have it sitting in a garage for 5 months of the year.

Bike wont go past 10,000 rpms. power just shuts out.

These bikes have rev limiters to keep you from blowing the motor. they are supposed to do just that, shut power off if you rev the engine too hard. Usually it cuts out and re-starts very rapidly and you get sort of a Vroom, Vroom , Vroom sound that lets you know you are reving it too much. If you continue to push the motor it will shut power off. 10,000 rpm is a lot of rpm and this could cause major issues with the motor. you don't want a piston to come loose at this rpm!

Is 116,000 miles on a 2004 Pontiac to much?

HI a lot depends how the car was maintained. I have some customers with model years close to this that do a lot of high way driving and have well over 200K with no major issues. Others just drive the wheels off their cars till something breaks. The best advice i can give you is to have a your regular mechanic preform an inspection for you. He will know the things to look for on this vech. Good luck

Things to look for before buying a 1987 K100LT

Hi, Dan for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. For more information about your issue please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

No problem, just need some advice.

Mate!The money is about right but really consider the running costs of the 4.They cost a lot to service.If you want to punt around the track,fine,you have to wear the cost.But! In real performance,there is not a hell'ava'lot between the 2 or 4 when you ride them on the road.They are both great bikes but a lazy grand for a major service is a lot.Belts etc. are a big cost to buy and fit.The 2,s are pretty damn good if you compare.I have had an st2,then a st4,went back to the 2.Also an older mhr Hailwood.I live in Qld.Hope this helps

Bike currently at 15,500 miles local dealer says it need a major service ie valve stems etc going to cost upwards of 500 pounds is this true? ta

I would check with another dealer or two. 15,500 miles is somewhat low miles relative to the need for new valves. Bad gas and ethanol gas is hard on valves and that may be what caused the need for valve work, assuming the dealer is honest about the bad valves. Most guys buy the four cylinder bikes for speed. They forget that the service cost on four cylinders is a lot more than for a twin.

It could be all that is needed is to reset the valve clearances. Even so, that is probably 150 pounds or so. Whatever you do, get a firm price on the work before giving them the bike.

Looking at buying a 1998 BMW 1000RT w/40K miles on it.

In short, BMW prices are directly proportional to the service history and condition.
Personally, I think $6200 is high. I bought a 2000 model RS with 15K miles for $3200, full service history, lots of factory extras - panniers, top box, tank bag, screen, seat, etc. It had a little road rash on one fairing panel, but that was $300 to put back to perfect.
I would expect to pay around $6K for a similar vintage LT, not an RT. IF it was mint, maybe 6K is the right price... I would look for between $4500-5500 for a tidy one - good tires/brakes, great exhaust, immaculate paint, full BMW service history, warranty.

Buying tips

i'm about to purchase a 03 749 w abt 4000miles. mostly stock except for some CF add-ons. used to ride a monster400(yes they do have 400cc monsters!) back in my country and the maintenence wasn't costly. was just wondering if you guys could offer me some advise mostly abt cost of maintenence. i would love to be mentally prepared for the costs involved..(tried to find these info in the forums but couldnt really get a definite answer) 1)i understand the 6K service would be up soon. any rough estimates on the cost of it? 2) is it about the same for the 12k service? 2) is the 6K and 12 K service(and so on every 6K) the only major ones the 749 need? 3)in between these how often should i send her for a regular servicing? (change of engine oil, spark plugs, etc)? any help would be truly appreciated and cant wait to get back on a ducati!,First piece of advice, use the search function on this forum. You will be flamed otherwise. This question has been asked a million times. The cost of servicing a Ducati will depend on the state of the bike. Generally, however, all interval services between 6000 and 12,000 miles will cost the same as any Japanese four. The major services, and this includes the 6000 and 12000 services will generally cost you between $600-$1200. This is a ball park figure, as this depends: (a) on the honesty of the mechanic; and (b) things like the valve clearance and age of the belts and the general condition of the bike. As you have a 2003 749 with 4000 miles, expect the next service to be at the higher end of the scale because the bike will have to have the belts, fluids, valves and everthing checked or changed. This is because Ducati specify their maintenance schedule in terms of X,000 miles or 2 years, whatever comes sooner. This schedule is repeated throughout the bikes life and as time goes will come to include such things as the forks, etc. I suggest that you do not skimp on any of this. However, Ducati's and especially the 749/999 bikes are not ticking reliability time bombs. If you look after your bike it will last you for many years to come, providing a fantastic ownership experience along the way. I hope this is of some help.,,,
