I have gone and inspected a gs500f after reading a fair bit about them. I watched a bunch YouTube clips so I could have a rough idea of the bikes condition and it passed all those tests. I took it for a test ride and was happy with everything so I put a deposit down pending the rwc which it will be booked in for this week. I also want to either take it a mechanic to do a thorough check or take it to a friend of a friend (who mostly does dirt bikes) before I follow through with the purchase. The current owner agreed but then after I left, called me to say he wasn't comfortable with me taking the bike about again. He is happy for someone to come to his again, but not for the bike to be taken away. Thoughts? The bike has full service history, always serviced on 6000km (though that meant there was almost 2 years in between services due to the low kms). Owner has done some stuff himself with the chain and what not and it is going to have a rwc. Should I be worried? I don't really know if I have anyone who will be willing to come and look at the bike as opposed to me taking it to them.
