7500 miles plus instrument cluster!

greenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread

Does anyone have an instrument cluster showing over 7,500 miles that they would be willing to lend for a short period(say a week or two)? I am located in Southern California.

Scott, I got the 00 F4s cluster has over 8000 miles on it asking $400.

Care to explain why you need an instrument cluster for a short period of time?

Sounds quite dubious to me... It would be nice to explain because it doesn't take much to conclude that this sounds like a trailer queen bike that you want to ride a little but not put miles on...

Not trying to put any blame on anyone. Just clear it up because there are likely people reading this board anticipating buying a bike and this kind of thing doesn't lend confidence.

I think this has something to do registering a bike in California. I think to register an out of state bike, it needs to be over X amount of miles.

Last year, Bert's motorcycle told me something like that when I wanted to put my 996 on consignment. They said it was a strange law that they were trying to change. Whether it's true or not, I'm not sure.

Sorry to have to raise your curiosity so, but Allan is correct!

Sorry for the conspiracy theory! I'm not from CA so I'm ignorant of such things... But I have heard of similar things happening in the used car industry so I jumped to conclusions.

Again, sorry about that. Now I know, and knowing is half the battle!

That is just soooo weird! What happens if your bike has only 50 miles on it? Are you "SOL"? I think the average non-touring motorcycle only puts on about 6,000 miles a year.

I can understand why people are using out of state P.O. Boxes. :(
