Motorbike: Kawasaki z800
Default Racing/ track bike

Potentially buying a racing/ track bike tomorrow. Cbr 600 f3 so pre injection. Anything to watch out for or know? Also is there any specific paperwork I can ask for to show it's not nicked? Seems a decent bike at the money (in the UK). Just had a full engine rebuild. Guy is thinning the herd. Very large collection!

You could do an hpi check for the peace of mind about it being stolen. Reg/rec on them die eventually, I haven't had that issue but know lads who have . Cam chain tensioner goes before the reg I believe so if you hear a rattle at 5.5 k revs and/or 2.2 it's most likely that they are 70 euro for a good one and make a world of difference. Bar that really strong bikes tend to just start at go ! In my case any replacements bar the cct was due to myself .

if left sitting a long time oil cooler/transfer seals can go and mix coolant and water. usually doesnt happen while sitting, happens when put back into use, have seen it a few times, easy enough fix, as said tensioners can go..... easy fix is a manual camchain tensioner.

Bought it. Seems to run fine. Still yet to meet it in person but did have a ex tt scrutineer look at so hopefully all will be well. Here's a picture. Anyone know what's the story on trailers currently? We have an old boat trailer I was think of getting converted to carry bikes. It doesn't have a plate re weight.
