Hi All, I'm seeking the advice of fellow netriders on the purchase of a new (to me) bike. I'm a tad confused with the year whole year model Vs build date situation. I believe the bike I'm looking at is an 07 model But the compliance plate says it was built 9/06. This seems logical right? It should then be an 07 model? Or is it actually an 06 model, as it's stamped 06? I've really worked myself up into a bit of a confused state over this. Also, what's the best way to tell if a bike has had a re-spray? I've checked all the bolt heads etc as you can generally tell if they've had a spanner to them at some point and they look mostly OK. But when I looked under the seat, the finish on the inside of the tail piece looked really rough. With what appeared to be a bit of over-spray almost. By over-spray I mean, the paint work is two tone on the outside of the body and, well I don't know, it looked rough on the inside. Sounds dumb I know, and I normally wouldn't have been too concerned, but the guy said something in conversation that got me thinking, that's all. The actual painted surface on the outside of the bike is tip-top, and a re-spray isn't necessarily a bad thing. I just like to know exactly what I'm shelling my hard earnt on... Just after some ideas and thoughts.. Cheers.
