Looking at a 500exc

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm looking at purchasing a new bike. I have had a couple DRZ 400s in the past . Now I'm looking at a 500EXC. there is one for sale near me that is a 14 with 7500 mikes on it and a fresh top end. Is this a lot of miles for this bike? My only comparison is the DRZ and that is not a lot of mile for them. Any things I should look for ?

Not a lot of miles at all. Just like any other bike, go over it and make sure it starts cold and doesn't smoke etc...

rather buy my 15 with with 500 miles and 7 hours

 

Wait that's the new speedo, do you want me to include the old speedo hours and mileage?

You got one for sale?

I doubt you'd want it, it has 10,500 miles and 200 hours.

 

What are they asking for the 2014?

So could someone swap out their speedometer and reset the bikes mileage and hours to zero? If so, that would be pretty dirty to perspective buyers. Especially if there's no dealer service records. Edited by Deepseadan

$6500

Sounds like an average price , hard to gauge condition of dirtbikes sometimes or what torture they've been through.

 

Maybe that's cadmans old bike, are you in Kansas?

Yes to all the above on the exc's and xcw's, its as simple as changing out the speedo

I have a 2015 500 EXC that I am willing to sell in the next few weeks.   I have to register it first, since I still have the Manufacturer origin paperwork. I bought it brand new and never registered it.  Also It's never been on the street, only off road.  Only has 404 miles and 25 hours on the original motor (16 miles per hour).  I've only ridden it in Roswell, NM OHV area for maybe 100 and the Sierra National Forest near Fresno, Ca, for the other 300 miles.

That's tempting Ride4life. I live in Washington State that would be a bit of a drive. How do you guys like the 500 exc ? Any glitches? I have read quite a bit but only talked to a couple riders.

Love my 2012 500exc. Remapped, desmoged, and TPS adjusted. The bike is a beast. Looking forward to riding the TAT on the ultimate ADV machine IMHO.

There is a 14 for sale near me (upstate NY) 4500 miles with around $1500 in aftermarket on it. $5500 asking price. He's negotiable.

That's a great price. How many hours are on it?
