Exclamation Need Help From A Moto Savy Member

Ok so I want to go take a look at a bike I have my eye on but not sure what to look for to determine if it's worth buying or not. The bike is in Pasadena I'm in Spring so I can't just take it to Motorcycles Unlimited for a 23 point inspection. Anyone proficient in all things motorcycle willing to help a noob not get screwed on a bad purchase?

Get in touch with Sunny at Sunny Motorsports. They are a MH sponsor and the shop is near BW8 & Spencer in Pasadena. See what he can do for you as far as a pre-buy inspection.

Oh and BTW if the seller isn't willing to let you have the bike inspected, then tell them to suck a chode and fck off. Chances are they are hiding something.

Thanks for the info, seller seems pretty willing to have bike looked over by a mechanic I'm just looking at it from my point of view that I wouldn't be willing to let a stranger ride off on my bike claiming he is taking it to his mechanic.

Certainly, he should not be giving you the bike to go take off for an hour and inspect. Have him meet you with the bike at Sunny's shop once you have arranged something with Sunny.

I really dont know, that's a question for Sunny. Give him a call and ask him. I know first hand though that he definitely takes care of MH members. So just talk with him and see what he is willing to do.
