Hey guys, just looking for some advice on a bike. I've been looking a 2005 yamaha FZ6 with 10k miles for 2700. The seller says its been sitting for over a year and its been dropped so the fairing has a crack in it. When he was riding he changed the oil every year (is that enough?) New battery and tires otherwise and no straight answer on how the brakes or chain drive is doing. (texted him)

A 600cc 4 cyl bike is not a good choice for your first bike. Too much power, too soon, with a rookie rider, often ends in disaster. Look for a 500cc or smaller twin for your first bike. After you gain a few thousand miles of riding experience, you will have prepared yourself to get a more powerful bike. Did you take the MSF course?

Look it over; ride it..............if it performs well and you don't mind accepting some repair items from the "get go," then go for it.

Me personally...........I'd keep looking!!
