Default Is 20,000 miles a lot for a 2002 Yamaha FZ1?

Thanks for reading,I'm about to pick up a new (new to me) bike this weekend. The bike is heavily modded both cosmetic and performance. My question is, do you think 20,000 miles is a lot for this type of bike and year?The seller has provided all oil change and service reports and keeps really (REALLY) good care of the bike. Another concern is how hard the bike may have been ridden. With the kinds of mods this guy has added you can tell he likes get somewhere as quick as possible.Thanks again.Here are the added mods:Puig dark Smoke Windscreen, Ermax Undertail, Pro-Bolt Blue Bolt Kit, Flashalert Intergrator and Flasher, Custom Dynamics LEDs(front signals), Libertek Flasher Relay, Holeshot Fork Brace, Galfer SS Brake Lines, Pazzo Racing Blue Shorty Levers, LMP Radiator Shrouds w/ Lights, Superdials Custom Gauge Faces, Custom Countershaft Sprocket Cvr, Circuit One Case Covers, Custom Master Cylinder Cover, Circuit One Frame Sliders, Custom Frame Inserts, Yamaha Carbon Fiber Air Box Covers, New Muzzy Slip-on,Yamaha Carbon Fiber Frame Inserts, Ti Bars w/ MS Bar-ends Yamaha Lower Cowl, Yamaha Tank Bra, Holeshot Jet Kit (dyno’d at 131hp). Tank Slapper, Corbin Seat, Speedohealer, Clear Alternatives LED Taillights, 15t CS Sprocket, Greggs Custom Flushmounts, R1 Shift Arm, Hyperpro Fork and Coil Springs, Yamaha Hugger, Holeshot AIS Removal.

sounds like it is well taken care of, and 20K miles for a 6 year old cycle is less than 4K per year. ------

20k for yamaha is not much, but the question is how hard was he riding it? If the mods are mainly to get extra power than he might have been racing it... in which case you should see that as warning sign... ------

Most of the mods on that bike are cosmetic. I am a harley rider. If someone"mods"the engine, crank, pistons, jugs, heads, nitrous, etc... then I would worry.Make sure the guy didn't spank it too hard and kept fresh fluids in it and you should be fine. ------
