Cousin thinking about gettin a 05 road king

I told him I check to see if anyone knew of what to look for when checking this thang out

All I've seen is pics and it looks badazz

Has a few extras on it

Any thought of what the price range on it might be

We need more info., how many miles are on it? Overall condition? Which model RK…Std, Custom, Classic? You can go to kbb.com or nada.com to get an idea of what it's worth. But what it boils down to, is what is it worth to you, and how much you are willing to pay. Don't be afraid of the age. I bought my 04' RK in showroom condition with only 2.5k miles on it less than a month ago, already put over 500 miles on it and have no regrets! You can't go wrong with a King.

Same here....06 RK Classic. Bought used with 6.5K on the odometer and over 15K now. No issues and nothing but routine maintenance.

Approach it like any other used vehicle. Records, receipts and inspection.

I'm kinda confused cause he's saying it has a six speed trans? and fuel injection.

I thought that stuff didn't come out until a few years later??

Cam chain tensioners are a issue if not checked.
My inner one was shot @25,000 miles while the outer one had very little wear.

05 FLHR had 5-speed transmission but maybe it was swapped out? They did come with EFI.
