      The tires can’t be good if 11 years old. Deduct $300 for new ones. I like the painted windshield trim.

              So don't you think the price already reflects the fact that it may need tires and a oil change? If that were mine to sell and someone tried to get the price down lower because the tires were old the sales conversation would be over. Or maybe I would even counter offer with a raise in price about $500.

                But the dude says the tires are good, so he obviously didn’t discount it due to bad tires.

                  All I know is whether or not I thought the tires were good or not I wouldn't buy you a new set to sell you my bike at that price. The tires may have even been replaced buy the owner due to the age. I know that the Brigstone my 07 had on the rear from the factory was pretty much toast at 5K

                        He is talking about replace due to age not wear. But I agree with you Flashback.

                          There's a date on the side wall of every tire. I would not ride on them if they were older than five years. My bike is a 07, the tires were original when I bought it in 2016. Those tires were hard as a rock! But they still looked good.

                            Why don't we have a forum heading just for Craigslist finds? I'm on the hunt for another bike and it would sure make it easier to find threads.

                              Check for shoe polish on the tire sidewalls as well as the dot manufacture date!

                                1st) Any tire 5 years or older should be replaced no questions asked regardless how much tread is left on it. Doesn't matter if the tires only have 2 miles. The rubber gets harder the older they get, thus less traction, so not safe.

                                2nd) For that RS, for the money he is asking, I wouldn't care if it needed tires. That shouldn't even be an issue.

                                The list I figure I need to do with any bike regardless of the mileage when is and depending what the bike is: All the fluids on the particular machine, re-grease/ pack all bearings like triple trees and swingarm etc, filters, brake pads and tires, yes tires, I replace them no matter what condition they are in., spark plugs, points & condenser if an older bike, carb syncs if more than 1 carb and I run a heavy dose of seafoam for the first couple of tanks. I usually keep the battery it came with until I notice any problems. I like to start my bikes off at ground zero so I can keep an accurate log as long as I own it. But then again, I am a fanatic about maintenance on my bikes. I also like my bikes to be as safe as they can be and as trouble free as possible. Nothing sucks more than being out in the middle of nowhere, 200 miles from home with a broken bike.

                                At a minimum, the 2 most important items that need attention immediately on any bike used or new is good working brakes and good condition tires. Kinda of a good idea if you like the idea of keeping the rubber side down.

                                3rd)

                                I second this idea. That's how I found my recent RSV on another forum. There used to be a nationwide search engine called "Searchtempest" that well. searched the entire USA, until CL complained about it and now it can't search like it used to. Some of the other forums I am on have a section just for CL listings for bikes and parts of the particular bikes of the forums. they are awesome. Some great buys on bikes and parts and hard to find parts.

                                  I use SearchTempest. I'm curious about what it can't do that it used to?
