leaks, sounds, check lift the front and rear end off the ground and try and wobble the tires, check all frame rails for cracks mainly under gas tank. look at the gears make sure all the teeth are there, open air box and see if theres dirt inside


sounds are sketchy you dont want too have too replace the timing chain once u get it but i suggest immediate maintnence before you ride hard, if the tires wobbble bearings are shot


any other questions let me know

Looked at it today. Its a little rough, the front plastic by the gas tank is bent but not cracked. The shocks squeak when you push down on it. He said it sat for awhile. It runs and drives great, starts right up. What do you guys think?

what is he asking for it?

shocks can be redone for a few hundred and specific for your weight, plastics bent right there id assume he flipped it at least on its side, if the price is right id go for it but price pending
