What to look for

Hi guys, so I am looking at buying a 2003 Zx-9R from a buddy of mine. It only has 9,000 miles on it. Is there anything that I should look for before going ahead with the deal, or any common problems? Looking around I can’t find too many issues with the 03 model just previous ones. Thank you!

Rear wheel and or sprocket bearings can collapse if the rear axle has been overtightened, easy enough to put new bearings in.
Check the white ignition switch plug around the white power wire as this can corroded and give strange faults.
