So i found a new bike:toocool: but its been in a lowside and has rashed right fairings and dented tank. It looks like the frame and all that are fine (i.e no scratches) but im checking it out on friday. Any suggestions on what to look for...

Here's the photobucket he gave..

Also, for the tank i was thinking of taking it to a paintless dent removal place or do you guys suggest something else?

And for the fairings i like those kits, like the ones from cali cars or on ebay, like the black and silver one http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/_Mot...adiZ2863QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item280229633521&
but i also might be taking this bike to be track only and pick up some shark skinz or hotbodies race fairings and rattle can them...

open to suggestions and advice.

I am no expert but the damage looks to be only superficial? If so, it only has 680+ miles. If the price is right this could be a steal.

i didn't look through all of the pics, but its tuff to tell the extent of the damage from pics. if you are not a bike mechanic or not confident enough to make that decision. i would get someone who is to look at it in person. good luck!!!

the price is indeed right, <$6k he's asking that is...

Im pretty confident i can judge and determine if things check out seeing how i had the same bike. Was just curious if there are any tips i dont know on how to self check the bike, like theres the string method to see if its straight..etc
