1. How does it shift? Will it shift easily between 1st and 2nd sitting still with the clutch pulled in? look for clutch hub grooving.
2. General shifting smoothness. The Shifting forks in the trans. sometimes wear prematurely and can cause gear failure. Pay attention and FEEL the shifting up and down the gears.
3. Plan on replacing wheel and head set bearings soon on a 04' bike. Listen to the rear suspension linkage for any sounds of wear, look for oil leakage or abrasion on the shock shaft.
