Hi guys, as i told in my presentation thread, i will go to buy my streetrod tuesday.

I need an help from vrod masters......

What i have to look trying to discover if this bike is good?

This one i found has 6000miles.

There is any parts i can look that can reveal true mileage or a bad use?

I think that looking tyre and wheels, brake disks and pad, trasmission and overall Conservation, i can have an idea of use of this bike........

But if there is any known issue or Charateristic, please teel me!

I apologize for my bad english..... But i can't do better.....

Thanks a lot
Bye
Joe

Look for service records, try to talk to the original selling dealer. Tires are probably not original, and if they are, they should be worn out.

Brakes should be original.

Listen to the engine 0 no rattles, ticks or knocks. Look at the oil - put some oil between two fingers. It might be dark, but not black, and as you open your fingers, it should not immediately separate.

Listen to the motor when you start it. Both cylinders should sound the same in compression.

Ride it and see how she runs on the road.

good luck!

The dealer told me that bike has only 1 owner and first equipment tyres ( not good as you said )

Thank for your precious advices!
