I am hoping that you can find yourself a fine Burgman 400 scooter soon, an 08' They is one fine machine alrighty! But notice how it is spelled, it has a U in it, no E. BURGMAN. They runs long time, you don't need to be putin' any head gasket on it, and it don't never run hot! It is like Liamjs said, the motors last long time, probably over 100,000 miles if you take care of them, change the oil and filter, use synthetic oil make them last! Put you in a drive belt every 15 or 20 thousand miles, a clutch at 25K miles or maybe only at 50 or 75 thousand miles, some last longer! Take care of it good, and you got all the help on here that you need. We are right here wit ya! That bike will take good care of you too. when you change the spark plug, put in an iridium spark plug, and you probably will never have to change it.
My Toyota SUV still has the original iridium spark plugs now with over 188,000 miles, still runs good! The 400 maintenance is simple and easy and the bike is very reliable and lasts a long time. 37K is a good mileage to buy. Anything below 50K is real good if the price is right! I would suggest that you get a 2008 Year Model or newer if you can, because that is when they got all the bugs worked out of those bikes. I have a red 08' B400 with 35k miles that I am getting ready to sell soon. I recently got an 06' B650 in showroom condition that had 10K miles on it for $3k.
We can tell you all about the Tires, Brakes, Air Pressure, Clutch, Variator, Belt, Final Drive, Battery, Wiring, Lights, Wheels, Body Panels, Seat, Handelbars & Grips, Throttle locks & Cruise Controls, Fuel Tank & Pump, Computer Controls, and whatever else you need. Gettin' a B400 is a smart move! But save up enough money to get you and 08' or newer one.
