Hi All, I've done a search, and couldn't quite find the answer I was after so thought I'd just post my question here. I'm looking at buying a '99 VTR250 that's been sitting idle under a deck (with bike cover) for about 18 months. While it's very reasonably priced, I'm told that the engines been replaced and need to factor in possible repair/service costs. My question is really what I should expect to have to do to the bike if I get it. I'm not really mechanically-minded (though want to do as much maintenance as possible myself once it's up and running), but was hoping to get an idea of the work that a bike like this may/would/could need, and I'd then get a rough quote for all of that. I'll then at least have an idea about the whether it's economical or just to give it a miss. I figure it'll need the following: - carbies cleaned, and possibly re-jetted; - new chain and sprockets; - new battery; - spark plugs replaced (?). I'm told the tyres are in pretty good nick, but am going to check the bike out this weekend. Anything I'm not thinking of? Anyway, I've rambled on well too long now, so I'll stop. Thanks for taking the time to help. Cheers, Craig.
