"Another question where is the coolent reserve bottle?"

Coolant overflow bottle is below the right floorboard. Check the level through the slot. The bottle is heavy translucent plastic and hard to see through. Open the top and point a flashlight down into it. That helps. Access is easy. Remove the rubber floorboard cover and the metal plate (T30 torx screw) and voila.

That is not a bad price for the bike. At that mileage it might be getting close to needing service on the belt and chain. If it hasnt been done you could use that as a bargaining chip, but then again its more of a sellers market right now so that may only go so far..
Thank you for the advice i will have to call the owner and ask about IF he had that serviced. From what he posted on
a couple of websites he has done a lot of work on it maintinence on it and kept records of it..

Under the rubber floorboard cover on the left side of the bike. A little PITA to access BUT the oil level is monitored electonically and you get alerts on the dashboard if it gets low. Nothing beats my Burgman 650 which has a glass porthole for a direct look (second photo).

Have you seen this one Greg? I know nothing about it other than came across the ad.



I just purchased mine several months ago and had 953 miles on it. I thought there couldn't be a used one (2014) with less miles anywhere....wrong!
That must be new ad cuz i have NOT seen that one but that is kind of far to travel. I have been checking cycle trader
and craigslist. That bike is at aa dealer and they add dealer fees and other stuff. So that would add another 1 k
on it.. Another other sites that i can look for a BMW scooter or a Burgman 650? I am leaning towards the
beamer. Thank you for your help i appreciate it.

The sites I used when I had to replace my 2014 were:

SearchTempest.com (aggregates Craigslist for you, and lets you set a radius you're willing to travel)
MotoHunt.com
CycleSoup.com

And of course CycleTrader.

Just did nationwide searches on them, and the pickings are slimmer than they were in November when I was shopping (though there are more Sport models than when I was looking for mine).
