Exclamation Pre owned checklist thread...draft

So it was mentioned in another thread how good it would be to have this as a sticky. This was a great idea, so let's get to it. I would like good participation from all to chime in with whatever comes to mind that anyone looking at buying a used bike would ideally want to look at before laying down cash. Once the thread dies down to a trickle of ideas, I will consolidate into a sticky for future references. It doesn't need to be Raptor 700 specific either, all machines will encounter issues. Here are a few quick ideas.

- if it looks abused from the outside, you know it is on the inside
- Check the oil. Does it look clean or dirty
- Check the air filter. Clean or does it look like a mouse has been eating it?
- Prop the rear end and wiggle the tires up and down. Free play? Bad axle bearings.
- Check the chain and look at the sprockets, they should look good, not worn out.

That's just the tip of the iceberg guys. Please feel free to add many ideas as you can think of for the next week or so. Thanks for playing.

Ok so here goes. Adding on what morph started, while you have the rear end raised, check for play in the wheel hubs, sprocket hub, and brake rotor indicating bad axle splines.

Raise the front and check for play in steering stem, a arm bushings, tie rod ends, and ball joints. Also check the stem to see if its bent at all.

Once warm, check to see if it smokes in high rpm indicating top end rebuild around the corner.

Maybe check the oil gallery bolt while its running for good oil pressure.

On the 700, the spark plug is super easy to access. Check to make sure its not super white, indicating a lean running condition.

Squeeze those brakes real good and check the calipers for leaks.

After you ran it, check the bottom of the motor for oil leaks.

Check the front sprocket area for any case repair welds.

Check the headlight mounting brackets. The headlights break easily with any front end incident.

When you test ride, pull 2nd gear hard! Its usually the first one to go out.

Thats just off the top of my head, if i think of more that nobody else has mentioned, i will add it

-Take a close look at front radiator and check for any dents/kinks/and leaks. Let bike warm up and make sure fan kicks on.

-Look closely at front bumper mounts to see if they are bent or the welds are broken.

-Try to look or feel around the front sprocket to see if the chain has ever been thrown and gouged or cracked the case. Sometimes the case saver mounts will snap but there is a repair bracket for that if it happened.

Check over all the plastics for cracks and that the tabs are still intact, check the front view of the raptor with the handlebars straight to see if the front tires are aligned and the camber is symetrical and that the a arms and tie rods arent bent...Check the exhaust especially where it meets the silencer for cracks or damage.

Hey, I didn't forget this thread. I have a 4 day camp trip over the weekend then the rest of the week off. I can get a good sticky going one of those mornings when I return and submit in here for a sticky. In the meantime, any other suggestions?

I would mention that this is a list of items to look for so that you know what you are getting into, not to avoid buying because it has one of these. Sounds obvious but maybe not to a new person.

Don’t forget to ask if it has ever been rebuilt. It seems anyone who is questionable selling a quad or dirt bike always says it has a fresh rebuild. And we all know that’s normally not the case.
