The more mods it has, the merrier. Chain/sprockets condition?? check for any oil/fluid leaks after test ride. Batterie/electrics...
Only mods it has is are a Acerbis headlight and Renthal bars. I dont know how suzuki did the models on these but it is bare bones. No electric start. Regular forks (Not inverted). So what model would this be? I am going to check oil and everything. I got burned pretty bad on my last purchase for not knowing about the problems '84 XR500's had so I am trying to get some good hints for this bike. Thanks for the help!
I ride a bullet. A 2 wheeled, multiple-explosion powered machine with enough moving parts to remove entire fingers. Surfaces hot enough to cook flesh. It propels me at neck-breaking, bone-snapping flesh-tearing speeds, over and trough obstacle's I can only see as blurs. Its a sport that kills the careless, maims the best, and spits at the concept of mercy.
