AID Needed in Buying A Used Bike..PLZ. ANYONE WANNA COME HELP Jersey Village area

Yea didn't really know where to post this really so i decided here.


I am going to buy a used Yamaha R6 and I really do not have any friends who know much about bikes (riding vs. knowledge about the actual bike). I need help in what to inspect on the bike as well as what to look for on the bike. It would be great if anyone who knows alot about bikes could come along with me to inspect the bike(the bike is in the Jersey Village area west rd. and 290) and I would be happy to repay them (lunch, dinner, or cash).


Thx for looking.
