06 Daytona with a spun rod bearing
Hi, I'm new here and the Daytona is most definitely my dream bike. I found an 2006 Daytona with 11,000 miles for $1250. Which is a steal! However, it seems to have some mechanical problems. The fuel system was completely replaced for $800 by a Triumph dealership and as the title states, it has a spun rod bearing, which the dealership quoted at $200 for parts and $1000 for labor. Now I'm not mechanically savvy at all. Is it worth the hassle to get this bike? Also someone else offered $1400 for it but it is not final. What is a reasonable price to offer, to not go over the regular price of a mechanically sound 06. I'm willing to go up to $2500.
