buying SUMOTO bike off private seller?

  1. hey ladies and gents

    just had a thort, few bikes that i see for sale on bikesales, from states, other than vic, have the same tyga kits as the sumoto ones. i understand that yes, anyone can buy the kit and ut it on, but especially the rvf400, only a few for sale. so just wonering what peoples thorts are on buying a bike from a private seller who possibly, most likely has a sumoto bike? obviously if there are or were any problems they have probably been fixed by the user or changed during services by mechanic?

  2. Like any bike purchase you should ask the seller for the history of the bike. They should be able to tell you where they got it from and they should also know a bit of history of the person they bought it off.

    If your unsure get a mechanic to give the bike a quick once over. They can pick up most problems a bike has and it will only cost you $100-$200.
