    Decent Deal?

    How does this GP1300R look? I bought my 2000 1200R with a double trailer and 45 hours on it for only $3,500, so I'm not really sure what a good price is on one of these. It says it has 46 "miles", which I assume is actually hours...

    Since there is no mention of a trailer and one is not pictured, I assume one is not included. Makes me think $6k is a little high. What are your thoughts?

    It looks like the trailer would be extra. My guess is its bone stock. I wouldn't offer any more than $4500 for it. And even at that, I'd try to work a trailer in the deal.

    Well for comparison. My brother in law just bought this ski 2003 1300r 64 hours in good condition for $4000

    Did you talk with them to see if they would budge on the price at all? Maybe having it for so long would encourage them to deal a little on the price? I'll call them and see if they'll bite on $4,500 w/ a trailer.

    What else should I ask?? Only thing I can think of is if is has had the throttle cable recall (or is that recall not applicable to the '06?

    Throttle cable recall is applicable for all. It's just a small plastic zip tie holder with a zip tie in it to hold throttle/oil cable off exhaust . They weren't interested in haggling so I found a great deal on craigslist from a member on this forum for 5K that had lots of stuff. Have u ck'd out the classifieds? I doubt they will drop to that price but never hurts to ask. Good luck

    for comparison we just bought a 2006 Yamaha gp1300r and a 2005 Yamaha gp1300r with a few scratches and a double trailer for 8,000, they have around 75 hours on them but were never ridden in salt water so i feel that we got a great deal.

    look on ebay to see comparisons for yours, probably without a trailer i wouldn't pay more then 5,000

    Seems like it might have been sold... PWC Trader link is gone, and all the pics and description on there website are as well.

    I found another one though. This one is a 2004 with ~136 hours. They are asking $5,000 (w/ trailer I would presume), which definitely is on the expensive end comparing to what all you guys have gotten.

    If I can talk them down to $4,000, that sound like a good deal?
