    Going tomorrow to look at a 16 CC with appr 9k miles on it.

    Supposed to be in excellent condition and pictures look good.

    Anything in particular to be looking out for?

    Thanks, Matt.

    Bikes are solid. With that mileage nothing really. Mine goes thru a rear tire by 9k. What is he asking? Any accessories installed? Go fast parts?

    Another new member and buying a tremendous value imo. Welcome ! Welcome !
    Most important thing to ask the seller ........
    “what oil did you run in that Bike” ?
    This could leave plenty of room for negotiation!

    Welcome, well it's 4 years old. The tires are due to be replaced, they are going to be sketchy in the wet ! Not because they are worn down but because they have gotten harder then the concrete tires that they started out as.

    Check the tire pressure, 38F 40R to start...make sure the levers move freely, sitting around grease collects dust and dries out.

    Expect to be gone from home for extended periods of time. You will suddenly feel the urge to EXTEND every ride. Use the trip meter , gas light comes on (180-200) with 30-40 miles left. Yes its normal for the gauge to stay on full for 80 miles.

    ENJOY the ride!

    When you fill it up do it left handed, and go real slow at the end and you can cram a lerge amount of gas in it after you first think it's full.
    Make sure the guy warms up the bike before riding it.
    How often is he changing the oil, and what oil is he using. If the clutch isn't slipping then he's probably using good oil.
    2016's are very lean so no performance upgrades without a Maximus or fuel tuner and bypassing the O2's with a plug in device.

    Careful. Damn thing uses gas and makes you want to stay on the road like no other bike... Addictive if not careful like no other bike.

    Guess that answers that.

    Need to fine tune the suspension a little and get used to the differences between it and my Kingpin but really like it so far!

    Those floorboards probably get decent money if you decided you didn't like them. Look smooth enough my feet would slide off. :)
    Enjoy the new ride, I love gray and black combo on those.

    If you like to push it in the corners, those riveted bag extensions might not last long

    Thanks for the heads up. I just noticed them. They look awful! Take them off. If that's the previous owner's idea of making the bike look lower, it's a fail. What to do with the leftover holes is beyond me.
