    Exclamation Hi Everyone! Needing a little advice

    Aloha!

    So after a lot of prayer and deliberation over buying a motorcycle, my wife and I felt it necessary to "live within our means" and just go with a simple, cheap but reliable motorcycle. I feel as if it was a blessing but I did want to seek wisdom from other FZ6 owners before I pull the trigger.

    If you guys and girls could help me out on if you think this is a good buy I'd greatly appreciate it. Mahalo!

    Looks pretty clean, low miles, full luggage. If mechanically it checks out, I'd be jumping on it.

    Great price for an '09 with all the hard bags...

    That's a screaming deal if it's in good shape. Wish it were here and 2 days ago. I'd have saved some money.

    Re: Hi Everyone! Needing a little advice

    Oh my goodness, what a beauty! 3K?! I like mine, the best bike so far after 60 years riding and nothing on the horizon either to beat it. It's not simple nor cheap by the way IMO. It's Goldilocks.

    Re: Hi Everyone! Needing a little advice

    Mahalo folks for the replies:

    The owner did say that the fork seals needed to be replaced and is taking care of that now. I did do some research prior to this and have seen that the fork seals can go bad on these bikes. Other than that (and a VERY small amount of surface rust in certain spots that can be scrubbed off with some coca cola or whatnot) it looks like it's in amazing shape.

    I think this will make the PERFECT commuter bike.

    Re: Hi Everyone! Needing a little advice

    Him fessing up and fixing the fork seals says ALOT about the owner.

    With all that storage, sure would be a perfect commuter bike!

    Please post back after you get it.

    Most problems can be solved with a suitable application of throttle.

    Re: Hi Everyone! Needing a little advice

    About those fork seals that needs replacement even with that low mileage...

    A buddy of mine bought a FZ6 from 2007 last year and he too had to change the forkseals (less than 15.000km on the clock). I am guessing this has to do with the bike not having been ridden and the seals not getting any exersize => Getting too stiff and leaking when the bike is ridden again?
