    Low Mileage ZRX's

    Someone posted a link to a ZRX on Craigslist with 6800 miles on it, to me that's 'low mileage', the bike I purchased has 5700 miles on the clock. Anyone else have a 'low mileage' ZRX? What does one consider a 'low mileage' bike

    Mine had 13k when I bought it nine months ago, I considered that low mileage considering it's age

    Mine had 2973 miles when I bought it just over 2 years ago. Now it has almost 17k.

    I've a Ducati Multi GT, which I bought in 2013, it will have close to 40K on the clock by the end of June. The ZRX is pretty much a garage queen.

    Re: Low Mileage ZRX's

    I saw one listed about a month ago in smashville with 2 k on it. It was a 03 1200 green if memory serves me right. He wanted $6500 for it with almost no mods.

    I guess I'm wondering what a 'base' price for the ZRX in good condition would be and then at what point does the mileage either add or subtract from that base value.

    Low Mileage ZRX's

    Mileage is not as relevant as condition.

    I've owned 6k mile ZRX's that were garbage & 30k mile ones that looked nearly perfect.

    With that said, IMO a ZRX with 10k miles or less would be considered low mileage to me.

    That was (10K) my thinking as well.

    Depends on the year
    Ten K on a 1999 would concern me I'm that it may well have been sitting unattended for great lengths of time

    Low Mileage ZRX's

    Any ZRX 99-05 with 10k miles or less has sat idle for long stretches. The difference between being 12 or 18 years old is not a factor.

    Regardless of year, the way it runs should be factored into the price.

    If a bike has gummed up carbs and I can't hear it run, the price I'll pay gets cut in 1/2 no matter how nice the bike looks. Too much risk with bad engines on these bikes from running on it's side or having low oil.

    Re: Low Mileage ZRX's

    I bought my 2004 2 yrs ago with about 12k on it I thought it was low mileage.i have had to do a few things to it.like others have said it's more about how it runs and was taken care of than anything I am sure bikes with a lot more miles are just as good if not better than really low miles if the owners keep up the maintenance..with any used bike you never really know until you have owned it to see if you bought a good one..

    Re: Low Mileage ZRX's

    I found mine a year ago at a dealership (trade in) with about 3500 miles on it. It's in mint condition and pretty much bone stock. Sorry McGov...reflectors too!
    It runs like a champ and had a serious look over/service before I got it. I don't really want to change anything and have swapped the stock seat for a Sargent. Anyone near Sacramento need a riding buddy?

    Re: Low Mileage ZRX's

    Bought an 02 1200 last year with 14K miles. That is low mileage in my book. Have a 2000 1100 with 20K miles and is still low mileage in my book. Just bought an 05 with 41K but well taken care of with service records. Not low miles but did not bother me. Super low mileage means trouble with seals and gaskets normally buyer beware.
