I am about to purchase a zx-10r special edition with the flame decals. The bike has 16,500 miles but is going for 3,999!! Is this a good deal or should I find something different?

the dealership is having a "mechanics special" whatever that means...also it says it has minor cosmetic damage, a couple of dings or scratches at worst. I am planning on removing the flames and possibly repainting if it comes down to it for that price.

this is it
This is it fail. At 16k it needs a valve job, did the mechanic do it? If not it is an expensive service to pay a dealership for.

Not sure, but I think I remember the 16k service being in the 700-900 dollar range at shop prices.

Still a good deal depending on the shape of the plastics. Those are expensive to replace.

Ok I will go and look at it in the next few days and see if it is worth it. Hopefully it is because this would be a steal! I will also look into the valve work and maybe find someone a little cheaper. Thanks for the info I had no clue about the 15k inspection you informed me about! I will post up what I decide on soon!
