jcarroll2007 Just thought I would let everyone know I went for the red '09 with 2500 miles (pictured above). I talked the guy down to 6K and I'm picking her up today. Thanks for all of the advice!

MoPed HitMan #2 or #3 are looking like the two best. It all depends on if you can handle riding a bike with minor scratches on the fairings. If you can get the 09 down to 6k I would probably take it. Even at 6200 you're not getting a bad deal, IMO. I would just start talking #2 and #3 down and see which one would give me the better deal.

I think someone (not himself as he claims) was just on the bike and fell over to the side while standing still. The damage is still on the oem fairings, but it's really not bad. He sent pictures, but it's really hard to tell. The lower has some scratches on the outer most part, and a few scratches on the upper.

Here is one of the photos he sent me.. You can barely see the damage. Attachment 63866
Sorry for the terrible quality. Uploaded from my cellphone.

MoPed HitMan I would personally go for the 3rd one. It seems to be the best of the three and it has a few mods. I would not pay that price for it though. I pay 6k for an 08 Graffiti in 2010. I would try to talk him down to 5800 or so. It is hard for someone to turn down a cash offer when you have it in hand.

jcarroll2007 Ok guys, opinions one last time please:

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/mcy/3795655970.html - $6000 - I can maybe talk him down a little bit.

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/mcy/3774585748.html - $6200 maybe I can talk him down a little more, he said he would like 6200. This one was dropped so the lower and mid are scratched up.

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/mcy/3761690489.html - Not sure how much I can talk him down

Red 08 had black, orange 08 had graphite!

That's how I snagged my 08. The previous owner traded his stang for it and after he rode it for a year he just didn't really like it. Then he never rode it.

jcarroll2007 Ok, I think I found the bike I'm going to get.

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/mcy/3784979320.html

I'm going to try to talk him down to 6200

jcarroll2007 http://www.cycletrader.com/listing/2...00rr-110260607

So I was looking at this bike and it says that the Fuel filter/pump has been replaced. Would anyone steer away from it because of this reason?

sweatiingbullets Sorry, but they are all great prices as compared to here. That 08 would easily go for 8k here. And the 09, close to 10k. The 12, I wouldn't want to think about. I looked at a 13 last weekend. 15k. Yeah, everything is over priced here.
