I'm looking to purchase a 600cc, preferrably a ZX6R but if I find a R6, Gixxer or Honda for a decent price I'll look at them as well. The years I'm looking at are '94-00, which are within my price range. I'm looking to buy fairly soon, within a week or two and I've found a few good bikes for around $3000-5000, some with low mileage others with high mileage.
Now I've been out of the bike scene for a good 10 years now, so I'm wondering what are some key areas to look at on a bike when checking it for the first time?? What are some common problems with the 600's I listed, that I should ask about or check out??
Most guys don't want ppl test driving their bike, and I wouldn't want my bike test rode either when selling...too much liability and chance of something going wrong. So, I just want to make a list to check over when looking at bike, so I don't get screwed over (I've got bad luck in life it seems)
So any help would be appreciated.
