The following are tips for buying a used motorcycle that might be a reference for the first time buying a used motorbike.
Overall Motorcycle Body Check
Make sure the motor body is still original and has not undergone any modification. Also, pay attention to the motor body for any scratches. Do not be fooled by the many stickers on the motorbike, because it could cover the scratches on the bike.
Check the condition of the tire; if it’s rusty, you can ask for price negotiation. Do not forget to check the exhaust pipe. If you find severe rusty, this must be around muddy places often.
Check the condition of the motor oil as well, to see if there are any leaks. If the oil is dry, there is a possibility of a leak. You will need to do a lot of repairs later on after buying the motorbike.
Check Panel and Electrical Motor
Check whether the speedometer, gas meter, light switch are functioning correctly. Make sure the motor ignition works fine. Also, make sure the horn and the motor lights (front, rear, turn signal) can function correctly.
