Hello from Terrell.

For sure change the oils and the filter. If your not sure when the coolant and brake fluid were changed not a bad idea to change them also. Past that check the condition of the belt, rollers and clutch. Depending on mileage a valve check might not be a bad idea either.

I ride the '07 400 Blue as well. I think asking for $2-2,500 would be more inline. It's 6 years old, but the first year of the "re-write" that Suzuki did really well.

You can try and bargain him down, but just think about how much you want it versus the price. The price seems reasonable especially with the low miles. Just remember, if you dont want it at that price, someone else just might take it from under you.

Don't believe the 75 mpg, most on this site are in the low 60 range for 07's. Engine oil & filter change would be the only fluid I would worry about. At that age battery would be another item to check on. If still the OEM one I would change it.
Oh and Welcome................ :cheers:

I agree. 75 mpg is running it downhill with the wind behind you. I average between summer and winter an mpg of 58-62 overall.

I am picking it up - 2600 - condition is amazing for the miles on it ! Any suggested service or little accessories to make daily driving on it a lot easier?

Perhaps more functional or comfortable, but these things could not be any easier to ride! I suggest a top box, such as a Bestem 929 which I really like and gives you a whole lot of bang for the buck, and perhaps some side air deflectors, particularly if you're going to ride in cold weather. Many people like to add attachments for a GPS, and depending on your Riding conditions you may want to add a drink holder. An aftermarket windshield is something many people go for. It really helps with the buffeting issue that is common on these things. If your commute involves a fair amount of higher-speed riding, it would be good to consider some Dr. Pulley slider weights of around 18 or 19 g. These will reduce your highway RPMs by thousand or so. There's other things as well but I'm going to leave it at that. You can check out some stuff on the accessories part of the forum and over time you'll Get her to your liking.

Ride it some and then decide what you need. The only extra my scoot has is a Givi windshield and a GPS (to know how fast I am actually going). I don't want anything else. I almost bought a top box until I realized I never fill up the storage under the seat and it would be a waste for me.

I would definitely upgrade to a GIVI Windshield. That will smooth out your ride immediately.

Ram Mounts are needed for your GPS/Phone and cup holder if you plan to do long distance riding.

A bluetooth headpiece like the LG Tone 700 is nice for listening to tunes while on the road.

Because I commute daily, the Top Box is crucial. I keep gear under the seat(tools/repair stuff/rain gear) and put my daily stuff in the top box like laptop bag, groceries, etc.

Definitely recommend keeping a tire repair kit and small air compressor under the seat. it comes in handy for me and other riders when you least expect it.
