Trevors #TipTuesday - 9 Tips For Buying A Used Motorcycle (Part 2)

6. Ask for Paperwork

Has the motorcycle been in an accident or had major repairs? Have there been recalls on it? Doing a search on the Vehicle Identification Number, or VIN (located vertically on the steering neck), can tell you everything that’s known about the motorcycle’s history, including whether it was stolen. It will also help you be sure the bike has a clear title, one that’s free of liens.

 
7. Take a Test Drive

Sit on the motorcycle to be sure it’s the right size; you should be able to put your feet flat on the ground for stability. Then go for a short ride—even just a kilometre is enough. Make sure the bike is comfortable and not too heavy. You need to know you can handle it.

 
8. Have it Inspected

A dealership should have a certified mechanic who has already checked out the motorcycle, but if it doesn’t, or if you’re buying from an individual, have the motorcycle inspected by an outside mechanic before you buy - That’s where we come in - Overberg Suzuki and Radiators.

 
9. Research the Price

To determine whether the asking price is fair, make sure similar models are priced in the same range. Check motorcycle dealerships and online sources, and if the asking price seems too high - or low - ask why. If you think the price is high, don’t be afraid to negotiate.
