I have an 07 with 60K plus miles and I had the front discs replaced under warranty but the problem returned on the new discs so every once in awhile I hook up the drill and spin the buttons.
Hey there BlackCat, thank you for the feedback. I'm a short guy at 5'8" and don't anticipate the pegs being too high. I put resets on my V7. 1000km days weren't too bad a few years ago. I can still cover 500 - 600 comfortably in a day.It sounds like you do your own service as do I. How much of a pain is it getting under all that body work?I guess my next step is to research the oil pump history and ask for the VIN.This one may slip through my fingers because I have no place to store it over winter and only a crazy person would try ride it through the passes at this time of year. But sales have to slow down now that it is fall so I'll keep my eye on the site for a few months and see what comes of it.
Yukonica, at 5í8 you should love this bike. Iím 5í9 on a good day, I can do 600 miles a day on my 07 and have several times. I got mine from a fly and ride as a present from my wife. I paid $4500 5 years ago, with similar miles. I test rode one originally in 07 fell in love with the fit, riding through the hills and valleys of south eastern Mn. The power is right there all the time, Im still amazed at the ride after 5 years every time I get into hills and corners which my EV would require downshifting and muscling through, the Norge seems in comparison to be effortless.On longer rides where possible I tend to ride with my heels on the passenger pegs. some Norge riders Iíve met at rallies suggest they handle heat issue by taking the lower plastic off, I am trying this but at 85f and up temps itís still hot but not that much more uncomfortable than the EV, Iím not really sure taking the lowers off helps.I did find putting handle bar extensions on helped reduce the upper back tension a lot and werenít that expensive, and mine didnít require any change to brake lines or cables. The front end dives with quick front braking with the OEM fork oil, if you arenít ready for it, but that issue you can change with different fork oil without changing fork springs,and being aware of how aggressive you are with the brake. The swing arm bearings and a new rear shock were a Royal pain to deal with, I had many posts and help with this on the forum but these guys were great and helped a lot, in my case what should have been a afternoon job,turned into a 2 weekend ordeal with a frozen bolt. I havenít dealt with the front end bearings yet, this winter. It does need to have the starter relay issue fix, which the previous owner had addressed. With 32 K on the bike your considering, hopefully a lot of these issues have been addressed. I am very satisfied with my Norge I can say it is the best fitting handling bike Iíve owned. My EV is still enjoyable but itís now going to be converted to side car duty, since Norge now is the ride of choice most of the time. One last thought,the hand warmers and fairing make late or early season rides here in Minnesota much more do able, and unless you get a unexpected winter blast you could do those passes very comfortably right now.

A dealer has a 2007 Norge with 32k km for 5 grand. I can't look at it because it is in Victoria and I'm in Whitehorse.Thinking of adding a touring bike to the garage. My understanding is the Norge feels well balanced under leg. Were there any inherent problems to be aware of for this vintage of Norge?Any input would be appreciated before I coerce a friend to go kick the tires for me.
My '07 has the same front brake pulsing problem. Please, will you (and others) detail the "spin the buttons" procedure for me? Photos would be helpful.
