Questions about Consignment Bikes?

Iím prepping to buy a 2006 Gsxr-1000 on consignment at a dealership. For all intents and purposes I have only bought my bikes from dealers themselves. I am fairly ignorant on how this process works. Can you all enlighten me on how this works?

1. Will the dealership take care of the Tax, Title, and License?
2. If not, will I need the seller to come with me to the DMV to re-title and register the bike?
3. Can you all also tell me things to beware of on 06 Gsxr 1kís?

1. How do you know the dealership will sell your bike for you?

The dealer will usually add TTL in the price of the bike, they will also file for them as well. When someone puts thier bike on consignment the dealer already has thier title and vtr130u signed and in hand to transfer over.

U can negotiate on the price.....usually there is a selling price and a bottom $ amount that the dealer negotiated from the original owner.

Dont know anything bad about that bike....But its a used bike so treat it as one with a very good prepurchase inspection.

If my memory serves me right, the frames were a little brittle that year.

If the bike is on consignment the dealership is supposed to take care of the title transfer process, I know we do.
I'd recommend asking the dealer your're buying it at what their process is and how long it usually takes.
The '06 GSXR1000 is a good nike.
There was a factory frame recall for plates to be added to the steering head, but other than that they are pretty solid.

I just sold a bike on consignment. Never dealt directly with buyer. Dealer takes care of all that, which is the purpose of the whole exercise. Dealer gets paid some portion of the proceeds for their troubles.

As far as the buyer is concerned, it should be just like buying any other used bike. Only difference is that depending on your offer, the dealer may have to check with the owner before accepting it.

I have one and I love it. When I first purchased this bike, it would shut off shortly after a cold start. To fix this problem - Turn the kill switch off, then back on, and restart again.

Take it to a certified Suzuki Dealership and they will take care of the recall at no charge.


Frame Recall:
Quote:

The trouble area is reportedly the bike's frame, specifically behind and below the steering neck near the front triple clamps. When ridden particularly aggressively – which we'll get to in a moment – this area is susceptible to cracking. If Suzuki finds any damage to any frame, it will be replaced with a newly reinforced unit. If no damage is found, a special brace will be added and covered by a new five-year warranty.

So, what constitutes aggressive riding? Let's be honest. A good portion of literbike riders enjoy lofting the front wheel from time to time, even on the street where such antics can get you into big trouble. The reality, though, is that these bikes were designed to perform at the highest level under a relatively narrow window of operation, specifically in rounding a race track as quickly as possible. Stunting and hard landings after long wheelies puts lots of stress on the bike that engineers weren't necessarily counting on dealing with. That said, we applaud Suzuki for recognizing a dangerous situation and rectifying it.
