Okay, so we spent the day looking at used bikes on Saturday, and finally at the last minute at the end of the day put a deposit on one. It's a 1996 EX500R, with 43000km, at Daytona on King George.
The bike looks good, it's got all new fairings thanks to the previous (single) owner sliding it on one side. Daytona ordered left side fairings, Kawi sent them both sides, so they put 'em on, along with flushmount front turn signals. The exhaust can on the right side has some light scratches, presumably from the same drop. No other visible damage. We're going back tonight to do a test ride, but i'm wondering what else to ask/look for.
Anyone have experience good/bad with Daytona? Is it polite to ask if you can take a dealer's used bike to another dealer to do an inspection? Is it even necessary?
