Damn, sorry this happened to you bro. I hope everything works out. At least you have some nice aftermarket parts and plenty of tread on the tires.

I dont care how nice the bike looks.. if I saw the plastics being held with eletrical tape.. I will run the other way... always start bike up... shut it off start it up again rev it few times.. do all the inspection you can...

take it for a spin... if you can...

I remember I went to see a 08 600rr orange guy wanted to sell me it for $4.5k it had about 5k miles.. this was a year ago.. so I went to see the bike.. bike was in pretty good condition.. had a little scratch on the stator.. and the only thing that I did not like was the front plastics were held on with zip ties ?? lol.. I was like wtf.. anyways.. bike sounded good start up no problem I ended up not buying it.. because.. I did not know if he had crashed it and then got some plastic and just trying to sell it..

anyways.. I kept looking at bikes afterwards. then I ended up buying a 06 600rr for 3k. with 7k miles. anyways it was pretty decent

recently I just bought a 08 R6 with 5k miles for 5k ... which was a sweet deal :) rode 300 miles back with it LOL...

anyways OP hope you got your issue squared away.

i had a similar problem with my 600rr when i got my 06. dude who owned it got a DUI and hit a cop in his truck. to shorten the story he got deported. and had to sell his stuff through his family. i got it for 3500 with 19k miles on it. with a akrapovic exhaust.

anyways now for the drama. the bike sat for 4 months. injectors were clogged and i thought there was no oil presure and i burnt my hands on the header. turned out i missread the gauge and was an FI light. after making the deal the battery died. i ended up getting a push start and drove it 2 hours home breaking 100mph lol. i thought i had a warped rear rotor and turned out to be a streached link on a shitty chain.

we all have stories about buying used vehicles. but your seller was a douchebag. mine push started me..

work in progress
