There's always some risk involved in buying a used motorcycle. You have to rely on the word of the seller, and they may not be as forthcoming as you'd like. That's why it's important to be cautious. Follow these suggestions to help ensure you get what you expect out of the deal.
Do some investigating into the market value of the bike you're interested in before you start looking and come up with a ballpark figure of what you're willing to pay.
Get as much information as you can from the seller. Here are some suggestions to find out how well the bike has been maintained:
Bring your safety gear along and ask if you can take it for a test ride. Listen carefully to how the engine sounds and run through all the gears. Remember to make stops to find out how the brakes respond.
Give the bike a good once-over, looking carefully at the following:
Look closely at the title. Bikes registered as "assembled" or "all custom" could be clones made from aftermarket components.
Get signed paperwork of your agreement by both you and the seller. Take possession of the title before handing over cash.
