Good Evening all,

This is my first post since joining the other day. I have been looking to purchase a Busa for the last few months and I have found one locally that is up for sale. Here is the majority of the info from the listing on CL:

Asking $9999 OBO

Up for Sale is a Nice 2011 Suzuki Hayabusa GSXR1300 With only 1,369 MILES!!
This bike is very well took en care of and is n perfect condition ....

the Bike HAS a CLEAN title and in my Name and registered till 2014

not a single scratch on the bike...bike was fully repainted and looks very very nice
has few little extras like the gold shorty levers and hayabusa bar ends and tank pad but other than that ALL stock!
This bike is practically brand new and barely broken in... never rode hard... but the bike is crazyyy fast!



The problem for me is that the bike has a custom paint job that im not fond of but it can always be repainted, and im unsure of what questions i should be asking. I will be meeting with the seller soon to look over the bike but want some opinions and general info on anything in particular to be looking out for. Is this a good deal and should i bite at it or keep looking else where. Your advise is greatly appreciated.

Other than the $ being too high...I would look for signs that it has been crashed. Check to see if the stator cover is stock or if you see any scratches on the forks. Welcome to the org and good luck on your search.

Welcome, as lil charlie said look her over well, add bar-ends, pegs, mirrors and exhaust pipes for scrape damage. I was going to say, if you are willing to dump $10k on a 2 year old bike which you aren't in love with, invest the $2000-$3000 and buy a 2013. You'll get a brand new bike, a few upgrades and if you act quick the dealer/manufacture incentive of slip-ons or cash...
Good luck!
