Concours 14 / ZG1400 General Chat and Tech / Re: Miles
« Last post by Bill on Today at 10:18:51 am »
Hi, first, what year is it? In my opinion there is a lot to look at. Get as much info as possible from current owner. Most Concours owners are older and take very good care of their bikes. I would ask why is he/she selling? Proof of any valve job? Why did first owner sell it? Then if you go look at it just look at overall condition...was it stored outside? (rusted bolts) Condition of all plastic to see if it was dropped, is everything stock or are there modifications? I bought my first one new in 2012 and had my first valve job done by Steve Sefsick in Tampa at 32K  with some valves getting snug but nothing scary. Does it have both key FOBS? Go look at a new one in the showroom and then compare to what the used one looks like. This forum has a wealth of info on it and most members know more than a dealer knows about the bike. Don't make an emotional buy.  Good luck in your search and let us know what you decide.

Hi everyone, I had this item on my 2012 ad loved it. Now I want to put it on my new 2017 and it seems Mama Kaw did some changes in the wiring under the seat. Can someone tell me where this goes on the newer models??

Thanks, Bill

I am looking to buy a Concours 14 ABS, and considering the various used ones out there-- don't have the money for new, and even the more expensive used ones are more than I can afford.  One of the more affordable ones I'm considering has 38,000 miles on it.  Second owner; I'm going to ask what maintenance records he has.  My questions for forum members:  is 38.000 a lot on these bikes?  What should I look for in the way of common problems as I look the bike over?  How often do the valves need to be adjusted on these bikes?  Thanks for any input.

Tires/Suspension C14 / Re: PR5s or PR4 GTs?

I didn't care for the PR4 GT front tire cupping. PR4 Gt on the rear seems like a good tire but What did we do before the Gt's?

It would be interesting to see how your 83 GL 650 compares to my 2014 CTX700, bet they are very similar in size, ride, power.  I test drove a GL500 back in the day and didn't think it had much more get and go than the CL350 I owned at the time.  So passed it by bought a Yamaha Vision instead.
