    looks pretty good !! all nice and clean ...

    just usual checks like chain , everything works as it should ie electrics , scroll thru menus etc , service history .

    look out for dents in swing arm and frame near the gear linkage , as these will how signs if bike has been dropped .

    valve clearences depending on mileage , what fuel map 1 or 2 . dog bone linkage condition !!

    1x race 2 x factory and you ask us what to look for LOL

    It looks great Leslie, Hilift has nailed the check list pay attention to the front discs for wear around the bobbins
    Can we ask price, mileage and year ?
    Good luck with purchase

    Roy, purely financial I'm afraid. I would love a top spec model, but one must cut their cloth to suit
