Re: Getting a 2009

Check all the usual issues for buying a used bike, specifically signs of tip overs and abuse.

Find out the real reason why are they selling? Sometimes the Gixxer turns out to be too much bike for the owner. This can mean they didn't break it in or ride it correctly, which can mean the motor has a lot of carbon and may never run right. Or it may just mean the plugs need to be changed. Check the tank for rust, check the tail pipe for oil residue, check that the steering head bearings turn smoothly, make sure it shifts smoothly, run it up through the rev range and check that there aren't any hiccups.

I'm gonna pop some wheelies..
