    Talking Buying a used pipe!? Help!

    i am thinkin about buying a used pipe of my ZX6R 02.

    The pipe is a Yoshi...coming off from an ZX6R 00.

    What are certain things i should look?

    How will can I tell if the pipe is still in good condition other than cosmetics?

    What do u think is a resonable price for this pipe? I think the pipe is at least 2 years old.

    I will be bolting it on and revin it up...gonna hear how it roars!

    taking my bike out of storage.

    Please Help...Thanks

    Well, I've ran used pipes before. Cosmetics is the main thing. If it's still on the bike that's great, you can listen to it. Honestly, there's not much that can go wrong on a pipe other than age, corrosion or crash damage that a re-pack can't fix. Can't really give a good appraisel on a 'pipe', there's a few different kinds. It's worth whatever you're willing to pay. Check what it's worth new and go from there. Ebat usually has tonnes of new pipes as well, check there too.

    Used Pipes

    i HAVE BOUGHT A FEW USED PIPES OVER THE YEARS, AS LONG AS THERE IS NO SCRAPES ON IT , THEN IT SHOULD BE OK THE ONLY THING YOU SHOULD DO IS PUT ON A NEW FLANGE GASKET WHEN YOU BOLT IT IN AND YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY PROBLEMS
