Know that most shops will probably refuse to do repairs on your bike if it is more than 10 years old. Most all shops use this same standard. Parts availability is the main problem. In any event, below are things to look for if getting a used bike.

Does the engine start easy and idle smoothly? Does it accelerate without hesitation?
Any smoke when it starts or when pulling away from stop light? (Bad valve guides).
Any smoke when riding at 30mph? (Piston rings worn or possible previous seize up).
Does the clutch engage and disengage smoothly? Clutch lever easy to pull?
Any oil or coolant fluids leaking after a ride?
Do all gages work? Lights, horn and flashers?
Any red lights on the gages lit up? Any computer codes flashing?
Do front and back brakes operate and stop smoothly?
Is the motor oil pretty clean or really dirty? (Sign of how well the owner has cared for the bike).

Is the oil "white-ish"? (water in the oil. If motor is water cooled it's usually bad water pump seals, condensation if air cooled).
Any funny sounds from the gear box? Anywhere else?
Does it shift smoothly up and down the full gear range? Neutral light come on properly?
Sprockets still have rounded tips not pointed? Well lubricated chain?

Good tires? How old is the battery? All lights work properly?
Is the upholstery good? Plastics cracked or broken?
Gas tank badly rusted inside? Do the wheels run true or weave?

Do the forks look even slightly bent from a side view or front view?
Does it drive nice or is the bike squirrely to drive? How about around curves and corners?
Ever been wrecked? What service work has been done in the past?
With the handlebars driving straight ahead, is the front wheel pointing a slightly different direction?
Do all accessories work properly?
Ask what doesn't work on the bike. What known problems do exist?

.
These are things to look for. I hope this helps. As far as the rebuild goes; when the shifter won't work properly or when the bike is smoking quite badly or the gearbox is making nasty grinding noises or 80,000K / 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Could you take a moment and rate my answer? Thanks!

My, 2008 kawasaki ninja 250, gas tank won't open. When I insert the key, it won't turn. I've pushed and fidgeted it as much as possible to the point before breaking the key in it. ...


Hey Simon,
I would haul it to a local (GOOD) locksmith, they will get it open..

Are you 110% SURE it the RIGHT key???

Good luck...

I have a 1990 kawasaki jet ski that gets hot. the engine was rebuilt. what could be wrong?


Running too lean will cause overheating.also has getting hot been true from the time since or before rebuild.? Why was it re-built? To much sealent or wrong seals could cause high temp Also cooling system obstruction from intake needs to be eliminated as cause.
