Looking at a motorcycle that has been cleaned up and is being presented in it's best light, is a lot like going out on a first date. :dowhat It will almost certainly NEVER get any better, than what you see right then.:laugh

All the things I look for, are difficult to see with these photographs.

Cosmetically, this looks like a clean bike.

I know that how it looks is an important part of the purchase, but for me it is secondary to how well will the bike work.

1) I would like to see the sprocket teeth on the drive chain more closely. I would also like to see the chain itself in more detail to see how much weathering it has suffered.

2) I would be interested in seeing the colour of the brake fluid in both the front and rear reservoirs. This will tell me how long the fluid has been in there..... more than 2 years, it's going to cause issues. Should be very nearly clear. The more brown it is the worse it is. Traps water straight out of the air. (Hydroscopic)

3) The swept area of the fork legs. I want to see if there is any residue on the legs at the point of greatest compression to see if the forks are leaking oil. Sudge at the 'high water mark' is a very reliable indication of a fault with the forks. (Much harder to see on the rear shock)

I would want to know about any electrical modifications that have been made. This is routinely done by people who have the best intentions :crazy

Look at the foot pegs, and the swing arm, and the frame. Check the alignment of the body panels. If the bike has been dropped (scuffed case says yes), there is a strong possibility the body plastics have been changed. You need to look for dents, scratches, or cracks in the frame, at the locations of engine mounting bolts, etc. to ensure the frame is straight and true.

Hahah Scorpio u r right bro. Its Optimus Prime sleeping :D

And the lower left cowling?Shouldn't the "ninja" decal be a bit on the right, over the turn signal? Other question is about the whels-should they have the same part number(as far as i remember ktm had it like that)?

I suggest you change all the fluids in the bike and slowly go over everything, cleaning as you go. A clean bikes make spotting problems infinitely easier.

You will want to check the valves and change the spark plugs if the bike has some miles on it. How old are the tires? They might need to be replaced.

Learn your bike. Download the service manual (available on this forum) and learn it too.

The most important thing about riding a motorcycle is preparation. Know your machine, train your behavior. And .... wear all your gear for when your preparation isn't enough.

Looks pretty clean from that video. Hard to tell just from that but it looks a lot better than many 2005-2006 6R's I've seen for sale...
