Default soon-to-be owner!

hi, hopefully I'll be able to call myself an owner of a Triumph. looking for a good deal on a used Daytona 675/Street Triple right now. I've been looking around Craigslist in the Southern California area and it seems that most of them are '07's going for over $5000 with over 20,000 miles. am I expecting too much when I want to only pay between $4000-$5500 for an 07 with less than 10,000 miles? D:

well, I've been looking at this 2007 Daytona with about 16,000 miles. just wondering if there's anything to really look out for, besides that R/R and fuel pump relay that I keep seeing a lot on these forums? by judging from the pictures, it looks in great condition but I'll be heading out to check myself in about a week.

They can be had for under 5k. I have found several d675 around the 4k range when I was looking last month. But you are going to have a hard time finding one under 10,000 miles for the price range you want.

Id decide which you want first The ST and Daytona are 2 different bikes.

The first year for the Street Triple was 2008. It'll be extremely hard to find one under $6,000.

although I am a fan of the naked bike look, I actually like the way the Daytona looks over the Street Triple. the current bike I'm looking at is a black/grey '07 Daytona 675 with 16,000 miles. it's priced, from what I think, very cheaply at $3800. now, with that price, I have a suspicion that there might be something wrong with it that the owner isn't telling me. which brings me to ask what exactly I should be looking for specifically for a Daytona of that year, besides that R/R and fuel pump relay recall.

Thats stupid cheap. I woudl check for obvious signs of damage. Even if it was dropped it could be that it didnt mess anything up. Maintenece would be the biggest concern of mine.

yeah, I plan to bombard this guy with questions about maintenance and make sure it's all legit. if everything checks out, this would be a steal.

At that price - I'd approach it as something is wrong unless the seller can demonstrate some semblance of hardship (or stupidity), lol. Try to take someone with you that has a D675 so they can ride it as well.
