I appreciate values vary between types and age. I suppose people review prices of a model they are looking at and determine for themselves what is a fair price or not.

Anyway, if I do get the 2010 bike I have a dilemma.
Aftermarket twin pipes for the great looks but with the caveat of a hot arse! :062:
Low boy 3-1 For weight saving and a cooler arse but not as good looking.  :006:

Twin high level pipes and a hot arse .................. any day and all day long!  (For me   :001:)

Yeah but Id save that for the headers. The OEM cans are heavy lumps. If the bike already had aftermarket twin pipes Id probably stick with them but I think 3-1 is the way forward for me now.

So I picked up the 2010 STR yesterday.
No pictures yet as the bike is too dirty for me to take any pics.

Bought from a dealer. I appreciate some dealers don't clean bikes and just get the checked and serviced.
Have spent 3.5 hours cleaning so far and it will probably need about another 4-5 hours of cleaning yet.   :019:

I noted the bolt missing on the Y pipe support bracket which connects to the frame.
A definite sign to me that the previous owner had aftermarkets cans fitted and probably lost or broke the bolt.

Still, I am going down the 3-1 route.
