I am thinking of putting my 57 plate TDM up for sale. I have had it just over three years. I would describe the condition as very, very good. It has 30,200 miles on the clock.
I have carried out all the servicing whilst in my ownership, including oil & filter changes, valve clearances & plug change. Brake pads and fluids changed including purging the ABS unit. Also re-greased the rear suspension linkage a couple of times, and replaced the fork oil.
I also fettled the CSM as it was causing problems when I first aquired the bike. I have just fitted a new X ring chain with new sprockets. Front sprocket is one tooth less than standard (I prefer this gearing) but have a new standard sprocket which is included.
I am after a shaft drive bike as most of my previous bikes were shaft drive, so would consider a trade for a Pan European ST1300, 1100 Breva or what have you with shaft drive with cash adjustment either way.
I can MOT the bike at the point of sale – it isn't MOT'd at the moment as the local garage I use has only just returned to work.
Extras include: centre stand, aux socket, Suzuki handguards, heated grips, fenda extenda and Givi V35 panniers which have slight marking to them, but absolutely no damage. The badge is missing from one of them. The seat has a gell-pad fitted .
Bad points: Well I am being really picky here, but I would rather be upfront. The LH mirror has some specs of silvering missing. One of the front side panels fixing lugs has been repaired -by me.
Also at the front LH panel fixing point I made a bracket from ali (its not pretty, but stronger than original). The aux socket is mounted on the small plastic panel on the side below the seat. I replaced this and the old fixing screw holes can be seen (just). Lastly the screen is dull on one side (I think someone tried polishing it with something abrasive). I have a perfect slightly taller screen which can go with the bike.
The eagle eyed among you might have noticed that the pannier frames that are fitted to the bike at present don't match the V35 cases. You'd be right because I have Monokey frames on my other bike, so changed the frames on the TDM so I could use the same cases for both bikes. I can change these over at point of sale. At the moment there is a top box mount fixed to the grab handles.
I do have a nice top box, which I don't really want to include in the sale, but if its a deal breaker I might let it go with the bike.
So if anyone is looking for one, I don’t think you will be disappointed. I looked at loads of TDM's before I bought this bike.
Price – will have to be close to £2,650.
If anyone requires more info or photos please send pm.
Thanks for looking.
