Bring your compression tester and check the engine compression. Take it for a short ride and make sure the gears all work. Visually inspect the overall condition. :cry:

The 426 is a good bike,pay attention to the kick start mech and the gearbox,the top end can have some troubles with galling of the cam cups,most allways look for chewd up nuts an bolts on a second hand buy,it will tell you most about what you need to know!,new plastic and a rake of chewd up nuts`n`bolts?=walk away! :cry:

Check under the ruber chain protector on the top
of the swing arm, for wear and cracks also check
the the underside of the frame for dents and cracks.
As well as the above post's

Good Luck :cry:
