Hi BMW Gurus:
I'm looking to buy a fairly high mile (43K) 2009 F800ST. It has some minor cosmetic issues and 1 or 2 seemingly minor electrical issues (The bike has been converted to LED lamps).
Several questions before I buy:
1. It has a "SERVICE LAMP" error and the right front turn lamp is not working. The owner says the error is because the LED lamp was damaged by water, which sounds like a simple fix. Due to the CAN bus on these bikes, I'm concerned this error could be more serious than just replacing a lamp assembly. Is this a valid concern, or are the CAN busses on these bikes fairly robust?
2. Is 43K miles too many?
3. What else should I check before purchase?
4. Should I just find another bike without known issues?
Thanks in advance for your answers!
