Hey guys, first off I'm new to this forum, and have some queries about a bike I'm buying next week. (so bare with me)
It's a 1999 R6 and has done 15,700 miles, which is very low for a 14 year old bike. No damage to the fairings etc. But it has literally no service history, apart from one stamp in the book. The MOT's go back till about 2009 and that's about it.
I've read the reviews on MCN and they say Yamaha to keep costs down used, 'lesser' quality components for some of the parts on the bike. Which is clear as some of the bolts holding the under tray and around that area have rusted.
I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what to look out for on these older R6's, for example badly made collector box etc. I would really appreciate your time and knowledge.
I've been reading MCN for years now, and can see myself using this forum for the years to come. Thanks!
