I don’t want to spoil your dream or teach you to suck eggs, but do bear in mind that the Gen1 FZS1000 were only made from 2001 - 2005. Therefore they will all be between 16 - 20yrs old. You’re not going to have a very big choice available to you if you want only those below 20k, an average annual mileage between 1000 - 1250? They are out there, but I wouldn’t have thought that they’d be plentiful?


There is a school of thought that says that a bike that has plenty of miles under its belt after fifteen years BUT, has been well maintained by a few long term owner, might be a better buy than one that has done minimal mileage over the same period / changed hands plenty of times / been serviced on mileage rather than time.


By way of an example, I’ve owned mine for about nine years now. It’s still only got about 26- 27k on it, of which I’ve probably
done 8k. But.............it normally gets an oil and filter annually, along with the exup valve getting a service. Brake fluid every two or three years etc etc The Gen1, if well maintained, is good for some big mileages.


Just my thoughts. Good luck with your search.

Hi


Thanks for taking the time to reply. Fully understand that is it hard but they can be found. I am in no rush so thought I would start with high expectations and go from there  :lol
