Re: shall i purchase a second hand karizma
Hi ....... Any vehicle is capable of high milages if well looked after. Main thing to look at is any service history, regular oil changes (very important) and general condition of service parts and fasteners which hold them on. At this milage I'd expect the cam chain to have been changed, along with ALL guides and followers. Make sure bike is cold when you arrive, start it (how easy and no smoke ?) and whilst it warms up have a good look around the bike at consumables (chain & sprockets, tyres, exhaust etc) ...... these are all the things that mount up the cost to replace. If the climate is strong sunlight then paintwork will fade and that alone will not give an indication of the general condition of the machine. Good Luck, let us know how you proceed.

Hi Abhilash576, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day. 2011 Honda Motorcycle Service Repair Workshop Manuals
yes you can buy it but look at the important parts of the bike- take the bike to any good mechanic and ask him to check the engine,in it ask him to check the piston,cylinder,piston rings,timing chain and values of engine.as u know that engine is the heart of bike it doesnt matter how the bike looks what matters is this that when u need your bike will always be ready to be driven and that too at a good pace.
if these parts are ok then only buy the bike and if they are not ok then deduce the price of new component from the amount which you want to pay him for bike. and after that make the replacement for the part as early as possible.
Ask your friend do an actual milage check, not just an inexact " I get about 40mpg " as he says. What is he really getting? Driving at top speeds is better for an engine than city driving. Have the dealer do a compression check. The valves may need to be adjusted, (minor thing). If riding highway, get a larger front sprocket, i.e.13 tooth sprocket changed to a 14 tooth sprocket. This will help mpg. Driving fast is not good for mpg.
As far as owner maintenance, the best thing you can do for yourself is to ride over to the dealer to pick up a can of chain lube and ask them to give you some instructions in owner maintenance for your bike. They will be happy to show you what you can do and HOW to do it. This includes adjusting the chain. Don't be bashful. Ask questions; "How often is that needed? What do I look for? What tells me I need to bring it in? Can I get those parts here?" Build a relationship with your dealer. You will both benefit more that way than if I just tell you how to do the adjustments.
