I can understand that you dont want to give me all the money back but the bike is still in the same condition i got it from you in. it starts and runs when its cold apparently but once it warms up and you turn it off once it wont start back up. so if you want to come to a fair agreement im cool with that but when i talk to you by on the phone you give me like " well it was running when i showed it to you" so that is not too comforting. u know?

So buying something and then realizing you dont like it and then need the money and telling someone everything you know about it, letting them go over it with a flashlight and ride it. Then make them a deal cus they see the motor has been opened and such and make them that deal cus in their words "i am taking a risk buying this bike so I will pay X amount" Then when there is a prob still willing to talk about fixing it when there was no prob when I had it. That is a scam?

Ok I was just hearing that you want a refund. Im just saying I told you everything I know. Right now I am not willing to fully take the bike back. But If you will wait and listen to what the shop has to say that is doing work for free, I am willing to talk about helping out. I am not trying to be a but I am being kinda defensive to cover my . At the same time I just want you to know that in no way do I feel that I HAVE to do that but am willing to because I do not want anyone to get screwed...But at the same point am not willing to take all the myself when I was unaware anything was wrong.

Your claims are falling on Deaf ears. And I do mean that literally... All I am hearing is that you needed the money. It appears you needed it no matter the moral cost.

Shame on you.

Girls it looks like it will be better off by just taking the bike to a good shop and find out what its wrong with it... then we can all just get alone!!...LOL

no but really.... going back and forward here its not going to fix anything.
call each other and talk about it!...

take the bike to get diagnosed and go from there! see how much is going to be and then ya can talk about it.... IMO

sorry for getting in the middle...

I made the posting to get help figuring out what was wrong with this thing.its kind of taken a turn from that but if no agreement is made at least the people that read this can learn from my experience and not have to go through something like this...cuz its not as fun as you may think...

sounding like previous owner dumped it on you knowing it had a stator issue. he charged it back up b4 selling it to you.
a bike with a hot battery but bad stator wont go too many miles

not everyone going to buy a bike, is gonna be able to tell if their is a major/minor problem with a bike, it is very easy to hide something.

its the principle involved,honesty.

maybe the seller did not know,maybe he did!

hopefully its just a minor fix!

good luck!

I will side with you. You claim to have been honest. There is no proof you were not honest. Bikes do like this. There was no implied warranty. They are toys. I also fully believe you rode it and hated it. I have spent an hour on an R6. I hated 59 minutes of it.

this thread has turned ridiculous!!! if the seller sold it honestly and as it then he is not responsible at all. just as when u sell or buy anything its up to the buyer to check it out fully. and even then something can go out on the way home or next day or during the test drive/ look over. buyers and people think that things like this can be prevented when its mechanical/electrical items that wear out, no one can say i guaranty it not to break for a year or whatever. especially with bikes, they are racing machines....

wow


there is no way in the world i would put forth anything to the buyer if i was 100% honest with the sale(which i always am) and believe this guy was as well.

One day a few weeks ago a friend wanted to borrow my bike. I had a funny feeling even though I have let him ride it many times. I ended up going and rode Roy's bike. Thats the day my bike took a . That is the that caused me to have to pull the motor out. happens but Im glad it was me on it and not him. One day it was fine and the next the motor is out for a tranny fix.

Lesson learned. Before you buy a used bike, have a qualified technician check out the bike first. Also, just because you're having issues, doesn't mean the previous owner did. At any point in time a bike can stop working when before that it was perfectly fine.
