I thought i knew about cars and what to pick for potential/previous problems with second hand cars......btu i still got caught out a few times over the decades. when i decided to buy my first motorbike, all i knew was from forums like this askign questions. i had no feel for what to look for. i couldnt test ride anything without a licence. so when the time come to buy my first mbike, i got my chick (who had a full license) to test a few bikes. so i bought a 2007 250cc kawasaki eliminator, with 5000kms on the clock. so a year later and 8000kms added brakes 100% engine 100% frame/bling 100% only rear tyre getting worn now i never had a vehicle of any kind, that has been so reliable. is this typical of kawaski? have you ever been caught out, with a lemon?
