As I have mentioned before i am looking for a starter bike for my GF,. well i have found a decent 87 kawi ex500 ninja in pretty good over all shape for $2,000. The bike has 20,000km, and been regularily dealer maintained. It needs a few things ie battery, chain & sprockets and a few other odds n ends the only thing that worries me is the front forks. They are not leaking any oil, the dust seals seem good, and the function properly, but they creak/squeek a little bit when i was bouncing up and down on them.. this is my main concern because i know front forks can get expensive to rebuild,.. BMathews? or anyone else with some knowledge on this? Is this squeeking/creaking really bad.. its not really loud or constant but it does worry me a bit,.. could it be just low on forkoil perhaps?
Any info would be GREATLY appreciated..
