Sorry, busy with school and work and things.
I did the deal.
I changed out the oil and filter, going to flush the coolant and brake fluid as well. Bike seems to be okay. I can hear the CCT so I think I'll have to get that checked out.
As it stands, the bike is currently out in my driveway with the right side fairings off, as my friend lowsided it on some gravel
. So the sdies are kind of scraped up, and the mirror broke. He bought new mirrors for me that are coming tomorrow, and I'm looking to see what I can do to get it painted. I don't believe anything mechanically was damaged.
There is an oil leak on the left side, which I believe may be the valve cover gasket, but the recall was done on it in 2010, but I heard that they go bad again, so I'll have to look at that.
Other than an oil leak and the CCT... I think it's okay. Cold idle sound Warm idle sound
Rear tire is in okay condition
The owner took off the lever guards
no power commander
yes there was oil in the bottle.
the oil level was a little low, I have done an oil change.
I will change the airbox/air filter like you suggested
yes the chain was dirty, minor rust spots. will change next season.
will do all fluids because winters coming and I live in Nebraska
Yes. This is why I directly quoted him with the picture and stuff. I'm jealous and I wish I had his knowledge.
I understand it may have been a bad deal. This gives me a chance to use the power of a 600, as well as learning how to fix potential issues. Life goes on guys, it's okay. It's a learning experience.
