As there seems to be loads of experts on here, could you provide me with some advice on what to look out for when buying a J model ZX6R?

I currently have a C1 model which is great, but a mate has just passed his test and wants me to help him buy a J model ZX6R, what should I look out for? what parts wear out quickly? which parts of the bike corrode? and so on.....

Thanks for the pointers, as its a Kawasaki I didnt think there would be many weak points on the bike.

I'm currently looking for bikes nearer where I live and I'm in Bristol so its unlikely I would travel that far.

Just take for a test ride, check it selects and holds each gear, brakes work, suspension neither seized nor bouncy and that it runs and sounds ok doesn't blow blue smoke from exhaust when warm. Check consumables - tyres, brake pads, steering head bearings are smooth in operation and oil condition. Then barter using all the points above if any not upto scratch.
