I will defiantly take it all into consideration.
The thing that worries me most is the local dealer told me that at 10,00ks it'll need a rebuild which I around $1,000 just for parts.
If you were racing it to work, or riding twisty roads then it's worth it for the thrill. If your just humping it down the highway then there's probably better options. A KTM 620/625/640/690 would be easier to live with. 30-50,000ks between rebuilds on average for the earlier ones and more for the 690.
