Check for basic stuff like sprockets, clutch check spokes and if you want to know if they take care of their bike ask to see the air filter or look in the hole and see if it's dirty and if it back fires at all when revved high I would worry a little or what the oil looks like if it's black or has metal particles in it. Make sure it shifts through all the gears and starts and sounds normal no knocking. Hope it helps just the basic stuff to check so you don't get screwed it happened to me.
