so ive located perhaps what might be "too good to be true," but please take that with a grain of salt. the 636 is located 3 hours away so its something that i need as much info as possible on. so far ive been told:
  • 2013 636, 2nd owner but acquired the bike at 3xx miles. bike now has 4xxx miles on it.
  • asking 5k, however is still in financed state. i told seller im not doing anything without the title and bike in possession.
  • seller said, "a friend low sided it coming out an off ramp," which from the pic you can tell ripped off the left side fairing. also had a mechanic friend look at it and no sign of casing or internal damage.
  • he posted a video of a cold start and it looks and sounds great, no issues. but thats just from the video.
  • comes with new tires


my plan is to go up there with a friend, a truck and a canyon strap. if i can get him to 4500 im in and will take the chance on possible maintenance and restoration. i would love everyones feedback and whether i should continue to pursue this or let it go. thank you in advance for your feedback.

please let me know if these images show up.

Looks to me like you made a much better decision, with the 2nd choice. The money needed to get the 1st one restored would've likely been a big disappointment, in the long-run.
