Thanks in advance guys!
Michigan trail rider. Might do a couple of practice days this year.
I'm looking at an '08 YZ450F that has only 4 hours on it. I spoke briefly with the seller who is also the original owner he's embarrassed that he only wrote it four times and estimates at an hour each.
It was obvious to me that he had little knowledge of bikes in general and he admitted that it took him some time to figure out how to start it so I think it's safe to assume little to no maintenance has been done. I failed to ask about oil/air changes but will do so tomorrow.
- Is there anything to be concerned with on a bike having sat like this? Things to look for?
- Besides the obvious, oil/air filter/clean carb, what else might you guys do to help ensure that this is a long-haul bike?
I will get into mods at a later point, but first just want to be sure to do all that I can to help this purchase last, should I make it.
