Option to buy 2015 RGS but issues with bike need help on decison
Got the option right now to buy a 2015 RGS with 11k miles on it matte black. Took it to Patriot Harley in Fairfax. This is a private sale off someone I know. (he paid the 190 sales inspection.
So this is a good bike, has a stage 1 kit on it, SE Filter, Tuned and flashed, blacked out pipes full system Reinhart and 10-inch bars, Sounds pretty good...
So I am thinking of purchasing. He is selling for 17k. Not bad considering these would be sold around 22-23 at a dealer.
So I want to know if I should buy this bike as is, and do the repairs on it myself at an indy shop or take it to the dealer, order parts online aftermarket or have the dealer deal with it. They said the repairs would be around 1800-1900 on it.
So the dealer said that its leaking clutch fluid and cylinder needs to be changed. How much would this be? Any good aftermarket ones?
The second issue is the shift sham cap by the shifter (not sure if I am pronouncing this right) The mechanic said this is a common issue on these bikes. Anyone else heard of this? Any aftermarket parts to change out so it'd don't break again? Is this really a big issue?
The third issue, front brake pads need to be replaced and brake pad needs to be rotated? Not sure what that means? Id probably just buy EBC brake pads, there like 20 bucks online. Easy peasy to do it yourself right?? not sure about rotating the brake calipers, Cant remember if that's even the term they used?
The fourth issue is the front tire is shit. Needs to be replaced and the thingy changed off the rime, cap I think. Not sure again. Looks like those fuckers tyring to say all this shit is wrong with the bike, fuckin Harley trying to make as much money as possible.
Fith issue is it needs an oil change. Of course, there going to say that haha.
Other than that they said it sounds good and don't think anything wrong with the engine. The bike is solid and seems like only wear and tear shit. Very hard to find a clean 15 RGs for 17k with a stage 1 kit add-ons right?
If I have to eat 1800 bucks that's fine still be 18800 out the door even with these repairs.
