    2004 RXP considering buying ??

    I have come across a 2004 RXP for $3800 it is in great condition and supposely only has 32 hrs on it. I would like to get in the 4 stroke era but don't want to drop tons of cash. i have the bug again my buddy just got a RXT-X darn nice ride. My 97 gsxl can hang with it for now but with all the after market stuff runs rough and not a smooth cruiser.

    Are the 2004 prone to any issues that i should be aware of?

    any suggesstions would be welcome

    need someone to help justify it if you know what i mean. LOL

    thanks

    I would take the supercharger and send it off to Jerry to get the metal washers installed. the OEM ceramic washers have a history of breaking. Also, run a compression check on the motor.
    Also, at 3800.00, thats a great price

    $3800 is a steal of a deal for that if its got that low of hours and is in excellent shape.. Ask about prior sc failure and check the compression. I got my 04 for 4k (trade in value) last nov.

    if this does turn out to be legit would it be worth it to do a stage I while sending off the SC per RX951 suggestion?

    thanks everyone for the fast replies

    Yes. Very Much so. For that price why not go stage 2?

    I bet you it is on craigslist and the person will not let you look at it. Because it is already on a trailer ready to be shipped to you and it is not in the state they listed it in.. Just send the $$ and it will be shipped by Uship. If you can see the unit in person and it is right by you go and buy it. Everytime I find the deals like this they are across the state. Then I tell them I can have a friend pick it up. Well as you can guess it is a no go. SCAM.
