hey guys i just joined this thing tonight lol i need help
theres this bike im looking at. A 2000 zx6r and i need help and some thoughts. I just don't want to get ripped off or having a bad bike and ending my life.
4000 miles
2500$
need brakes bled
and carbs cleaned supposedly
The guy says at 60mph at i think 6000rpms it starts to bog out he says that the cabrs need to be clean. Is that correct or could there be soemthing else wrong with it. He also says that the previous owner had an accident buh it was only cosmetics. Here are some pictures of the bike.
Thank You

for $2500 bucks i would say go for it. everything else can be fixed. as car as the carbs, the bogging out sounds about right. just clean them or if you dont know how take em to a local shop and have em cleaned. i dont think it cost much. gl!

Does he have all the plastics? If not you might want to re think it. The front end alone can cause you lots of money specially if you dont have the headlight assembly (probably going to cost you an extra 1500-2000), you'll be better of buying another bike that has everything...just my 2 cents.....

here's another picture it comes with the track front fairing and he said that i could just get some fog lights to make it "street legal"


but ive seen some stock upper fairings that would cost $200 and the lights about $250 is that a prett good price?

Buy that fucking bike and get it on the track!! Hell yes, If I saw that deal, I am pretty sure I would jump on it.

Just my $0.02

crap erased my reply on accident... anyway to keep it short.. for a track bike its a good deal.. to put it on the street, I wouldnt bother...

the fact that the wheel and front fender colors dont match the tail and tank lead me to believe there is more to the story of this bike than the selling is telling you...

[:Agree]The pict from the real makes it liik like the tail and wheel are not lined up. I'd look it over carefully for a bent frame. A bent rear frame can be replaced. I fthe main frame i sbent you will be looking at replacing it with serious $$ and work.

Good move..... be patient and shop around. I am pretty sure you can find a good bike or a newer bike for 3-5g's without any headache.

That thing has major damage written all over it. And it doesn't run right either. He's giving you a huge line of BS. Your doing the right thing. Run away.
