Good afternoon everybody, I recently sold my 06 scorched yellow 675 that I've owned for about 10 years. I stumbled across a 2010 red 675 that only has 1500 original miles for $3500 USD. Obviously I bought it. Needless to say its a gem, but everything is as it came from the factory, such as fluids, plugs, tires, etc.. I have plans to replace tires, oil, brake pads & brake fluid. I am going to see how it goes before deciding to replace plugs & air filter. I know there are a few upgrades between my old 06 model and the 10 model I have now. A question to you guys is if there's anything that I need to keep an eye out for on the 10 model that is a known problem, or if you think I'm overlooking any maintenance items before putting it on the road.

Life has been busy the past few years and I honestly haven't put many miles on my previous bike let alone this new one, so I'll be approaching everything cautiously until I get my sea legs back under me. I recently moved to Eastern Tennessee, so there are plenty of great areas to explore and ride. If anybody is local to Knoxville area let me know, I need to make some new friends. I haven't gotten into the track scene at all, and ride fairly conservatively but would still love to get out and about if anybody is local to me.

You have some great roads to look forward to along the NC border. I call it MotoDisneyland and drive up there from SC once a year.

Other than some stator failures (and it seems a small subset of many brands/models have that issue) these bikes are solid.

I would question why you're replacing brake pads with 1500 miles on them. And no reason to replace a clean air filter and spark plugs unless it was stored in some strange place (like a chlorine warehouse). There is value in pulling the plugs and reinstalling them with a little anti-seize as two different metals will eventually bond together if left undisturbed long enough.

Clean and lube the chain real good. Sounds like a heck of a buy. I would of bought it in NY minute :)
