Is this a good idea?

I have a chance to buy a 2005 K1200S. It has 49K miles never laid down it has been dropped once with a small nick. I know the person selling it and he says it has no known issues short of a little clutch noise in neutral. It has one recall for the oil cap not completed yet. The asking price is 4000.00. What do you guys think about the mileage and price?

There are a lot of folks who trash talk the early build K bikes. I have 80,000 mile on my 05 with no major issues. There are some things you have to get used to like a sloppy shifter and bad low RPM fueling. Some you can fix, some you learn to live with. I haven't found a bike I like better. 4G's? Check the service history with a deal to make sure all of the recalls have been done. Then jump on it!
