    Looking at a 2000 Bird,Good year for bird or not?

    Looking to buy a Bird again,owned a 97 and really miss that bike.I cannot bring myself to spending money for a new ST bike and I know that the bird can be the perfect ST bike but I want FI. I found a clean stock 2000 with 8000 miles and was wondering If that was a good year for the bird or if I should look for a newer one? Any input appreciated. Thanks.

    Welcome to the site.

    All years are good years for the Bird. With only 8,000 miles on it the bike sounds like an awesome find.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I cannot wait to ride a bird again. With a few minor mods it will make a perfect commuter/ ST for me since I only get to do about 3 800 mile days a year.

    Welcome! As said above, go for it. Worst case you'll have to do the test plug fix, but that is really quite simple and inexpensive.

    I purchased a 2000 this year and love it! Mine had 19000 miles and I thought that was low mileage.

    Funnest bike I've ever owned..

    I may be a little biased, but as far as I am concerned there is NO bad years. Although I have never ridden a carb bird

    Own a 2K number 9 built for that year. It has 64K on it now ride it every day to work in the AZ heat 90 miles round trip. Love it it's the main reason I don't mind the commute. I have done the Devils Run Route 666 ride with my misses double up last year. It was a 265 mile ride in one day on one of the curviest and most elevation changing road in the US. Bike ran flawless hauling us both 2 up. We are going again in June of 2011 it's an annual ride.
    The only down I have had is the usual Stator drop at 30K and R/R at 50K and I finally killed the chain at 64K. She averages 40 mpg with 2 Brothers slip ons and a K&N and 1 up on the front sprocket. Like Shewie mentioned do the test plug fix put in the 6mm shim and go with a set of Heli or VFR bars and you'll be set to go.

    From Australia. As has been said before go for it. The only thing that seems to go wrong with any of them is the stator and R/R.

    I dont think there is a bad year for the XX.. just a personal preference on carb or FI.

    I know it just wouldnt be right to kill all the stupid people that we meet..

    But do you think it would be appropriate to just remove all of the warning labels and let nature take its course.
