    Default Need some tips

    Hello, I'm thinking of purchasing my first bike, it's an 89 Honda CBR. Just wondering when I go look at it what are somethings that I should look for?

    I'm a total newb at this and any help will be great.

    Thanx in advance.

    look at things like tread wear...look at the sprocekt teeth so if they still have a decent shape to them or if they are ground down...look at the brake fluid and its colour...check things like throttle free play.

    see if there are any signs of a crash...stuff like that

    take it on the highway if you can for the test drive to test for speed wobbles
    if it does might be frame bent or something so its been in a crash

    check oil and shit too
