Hello, i'm buying a 2009 yz450f tomorrow, for 3,000. I currently have 3,400 so i'll have 400 bucks left over to put into the bike if any problem arises. I'm looking for some technical / professional advice.
The guy said he is the second owner of the bike, never raced or abused, and looking at it, it is in pretty good shape. When he brings it to me tomorrow what should i be on the look out for??? How can i tell if it's a ticking time bomb, he seems 100% sure that the bike is perfect on a count of i told him numerous times if he brings me the bike and it has any problems i won't want it, he assures me it's solid.
I already know to check the bearings, check the idle, throttle response, check for engine noises, check the suspension, check for any unusual wear marks, but what else should i look for? is 3 grand a good price? and what are the possibilities of problems if the bike "pulls of a fast one on me" will 400 bucks be able to cover my expenses? I can do all of the work my self, involving carbs, valves, and basically anything top end. so i don't need any shop labors prices added in,
ANY HELP WOULD BE AWESOME THANK YOU
