I think its a great price, I would buy one for this price in a heartbeat.

OMG, I tell you what, if your cousin doesn't want it, I may take it. Do you any pics of it? For $3000. I would be all over that. Thats my favorite version of the 6r too. In fact, Kawi was on point in 2005 all around.

That is cheap...What is scuff though? Does it run? Smoke? The price is cheap though.

seems to be a really low price...doesn't necessarily mean anything is wrong with it but when you say the guy has a clear title to it are you sure that it's not a salvage title?....if its been laid down a couple of times you might want to make sure the frame is not bent....

If the damage is mostly cosmetic and the engine is strong and the frame is straight, I say jump on it. The clean title is a plus also.
