Twist the axle, and swingarm side to side to check bearings. Stand it up on the grab bar and look for a bent frame, a-arms, and shocks. Starts when cold, no noise from the bottom of the motor, you may hear valve noise in the upper motor. No oil leaks, clean and lubed chain, no bent over teeth on the sprockets. Drives straight, shifts smooth, clutch works good, front brakes don't pull to one side. Check the lever on the clutch side cover for at least 1/16in free play.

Yes, if maintained and driven with a little respect, it will outlive you.

I've beaten my 09 pretty good. It has 4,500 miles and 300 hours. Many of those spent climbing hills and riding double. Inside it looks as if the motor was never even ran, it's ridiculously clean

Look at the sidewall of the tires for maximum operating pressure. Start there and decrease as needed for proper handling and comfort. Get a good low pressure tire gauge and take it on your test ride. Drop 1lb at a time till you get close, then play with 1/2 lb up or down till you're dialed in.
