    I had a 1992 BMW K75S that I bought in 2002 with 36K for $3,600 - it had the dry car style clutch replaced at a cost of $1200 and the PO was scared-straight! I though well that is out of the way what else could go wrong? 2 months later - aluminum gas tank started leaking at the base - rubber cushions wore and I replaced the right away but the damage was done. $1,400 for a new tank + fuel pump etc needed to be swapped. 3 trips to the welder and the tank had no more leaks - there were two cracks. Water pump seal, starter seal, battery $100, Upper fork tubes, and too many things to list. at 64K the final drive went $1200 (add 40% to prices for inflation). I sold it with 64K miles. BMW - never again.

    Bought 2012 Honda NC700X with 33K for $1,600 . Needed all regular maintenance, and some minor damage + tires, chain & sprockets, battery, front brake pads, (clutch is about 85% worn), all fluids, valve adjustment, etc. Would take this bike any day over the BMW or nearly any other bike.

    85% left or 85% gone?
    I'm assuming that's a guess and you didn't actually take it apart to inspect it (that seems like a lot of work for an inspection is all) I'm just curious

    So I've heard of a few people that replaced their NC's clutch ok the forum, from what I remember it was a little north of 60,000 miles, on those NC, my 2013 NC700X has just over 91,000 miles still on the original clutch

    I just rolled over 75k and I still have the original clutch. All street riding and not too many hard take offs.
