So I'm riding home from the store and I see this red ZX10R sitting on the side of the road with a for sale sign on it. I figure what the hell I'll check it out. So I go talk to the owners friend who is selling the bike for him (flag one) and he tells me that the chain has been recently waxed, tires brakes and all in good order and the bike has 13k on the clock. Well in my 30 second walk around I see the fork seals are shot, no lever on the front brakes, the chain has been waxed but not since it was new. Burn marks, pits, and appears to be a 525 chain. Sprockets are toast, and even though he said it's never been down just dropped some how the brake side peg was ground down to a 1" stub.. I never started it as the tires needing replaced, fork seals shot, and the front brakes no good halted my inspection promptly. I then got on my bike and took off. Overall cosmetically it looks good, but too many mechanical issues for a 5 year old bike and a price tag of $6500..
