2006 Multistrada 1000 S - considering buying, your opinion?   Posted: Tue Jun 12, 2018 2:09 pm   
It looks darn good. Generally the valve guide issue showed up by 20k miles. Likely if it runs well and doesn’t use oil it is ok. But it is very easy to check the horizontal exhaust valve guide. M ...

The luggage seems VERY difficult to find now- only rarely do I see it come up for sale.
The Olins and 'Fat' Bars are quite nice.

that is an 'S' model with the Ohlins suspension etc?

I have not followed pricing much- for a low miles bike that certainly seems pretty good.
Here is what I would do, just in case. Get the VIN and ...

If the price is right I'd buy it in a second.
Just replace the. Cam belts, oil, brake and clutch fluid ('tyres too if you are paranoid) and fix the cosmetics.

Make sure to check the engine mount ...

I'm 5' 10" and have no problem with height at all.

Best to go ride one and see how you like it.
I'd buy a low mileage bike certainly, but plan on replacing belts and oil etc.

Where I live ...

It has to have a complete circuit to work.

I don't think you can get a red key.
BUT you can buy ( or flash yours) an ECU with no immobilizer and not need it.

Very different bike than your Honda to ride.
Much more power, lots better brakes and handles a lot better.

They are reliable if properly maintained. Nothing difficult or even too often-but must be ...

It could be an honest mistake on the year - or could be a dishonest seller.

I guess if there was paperwork to back up the tank and valve guides it would be good, otherwise probably better to wait f ...

One of my buddies (on here also) has a newer bike he swapped with older bodywork because he prefered the silver/grey colour.
Looks sharp too!

The biggest hit I think would be salvage title.

Seems high for price to me.

I was going to ask if States or Canada, but looks like Canadian Vancouver...

Does it have a salvage title? (Do they do that in Canada?)

I wouldn't be afraid of the ...

I see no 'feet' on the prototype stand.
I hope you add some, otherwise it will tend to really Sink into asphalt.

See if the valve guides have been replaced.
It is pretty easy to check the exhaust guide in th horizontal.
