Minor cosmetic damage means it's probably scraped to shit. Offer $2100.

Pictures only go so far, but it looks OK (I like the black; I had the same one). Price seems pretty good but you need to see what "cosmetic damage" means; you might have some wiggle room.

It never hurts to go look at it, but email him first with some questions beforehand.

I looked up my email I sent the prior owner of mine before I went to look at it:

"If you could answer these questions for me, that would be great:

(1) How are the condition of the tires? (Ex: Dry-rot, worn treads, flat spots, etc.)

(2) How was it ridden? (ex: Tear-assing around on highways, racing, or gentle/moderate).

(3) When was it ridden last?

(4) When did it receive its last oil change?

(5) Any other service performed (followed manufacturer recommended service intervals; received its first service at the recommended time; anything replaced/damaged during its life; any other service)?

(6) Why are you selling it?

(7) Any modifications?

(8) Is there anything, anything at all, not previously disclosed that would compromise the rider's safety?

(9) How's the paint? Nicks; scratches; dents; rust anywhere on the bike?

(10) Any prior owners?

(11) Overall, how did you enjoy the bike during the time of your ownership? Would you purchase it again?

(12) Was it ever dumped/laid-down?"


The owner should never have a problem answering these questions (if they do, that's when you run). He's supposed to want to sell it, after all. Also, ask for the VIN. You can get an exact amount on what you'll pay for insurance (the insurance companies go by the VIN; they may have multiple codes for each bike and there may be slight price differences between them) and, most importantly, you can spend a few bucks ($2-$5) and run the VIN online to make sure it has never been in an accident, stolen, etc.

If you decide to go look at it, go through this several times beforehand and make yourself up a checklist:

Thanks will that was easier than remembering your username while replying . I just sent him the questions awhile ago and asked if I could get the VIN now I wait once again thank you. You and everybody else are really making this easier for me. Can't wait to be riding safety first though that's for sure

Where are you located? I'm in Palm Coast and would be more than happy to help you check the bike out if you need someone who knows what they're looking for with you.

75 miles is nothing when you're talking about Florida anyway. I have never bought a used bike that wasn't at least 40 miles away.

I also thought you had to wait 6 months to buy a bike? Why even look until you're ready. Homeboy isn't going to hold the thing for you.

alright I'll let you know . But I'm pretty sure my neighbor can. I was going to wait because I was in dream land where I thought I could get the ninja 300 new and never drop it . That's when I turn 18 in around 6 months hence the wait for financing. But to young to get into debt. So used is better and I get it sooner

Unless you've had credit cards for a while, they're more than likely not going to approve you. I had one for around five months when I went to find out about financing through one of Kawasaki's lenders and I needed a co-signer.
