2000 ZX6r value

Just looking at purchasing a 2000 zx6r for 2300 dollars. I'm going to look at it in the next day or so, and wondering if i can draw on some of the experience on here to tell me what if any specific problems I should be looking for with this model year bike.

Thanks, feel free to comment on the price. I think it's a good deal, he wanted 3100..and I got him down to that without even seeing it yet.

what's the milage on the bike?

Check forks for leaks.

Especially check 2nd gear to see that it doesn't bounce out. Tell him up front.... I'm gonna test ride it HARD.



Yeah....I can try & make that for ya.

I understand your dilemma, but personally, I don't buy a preowned (non warranteed) bike unless I put it thru its paces. I guess it comes down to whether you're willing to fork over $2300 on a gamble that the bike does not have any motor/tranny issues . Not saying that by test riding it, you can discover all problems, but you definitely can not
discover any problems by not test riding it. Just my .2

Thats how much I paid for my j1 like 3 or 4 years ago, but I drove it and knew everythign checked out, other than the chain an sprockets which I knew about before buying so it was all good.

Honestly I wouldnt buy something without testing it first. I understand it winter so its hard.

Im hoping that the roads are a bit bare where he lives, so i can try that at least. U said thats what u paid 2-3 years ago. Am i right in saying that once a bike gets past its prime, and is 10 years old, wether it be a 93 a 96 or a 2000 their always gonna be in that 1500-2500 range, as long as they are mechanically sound. I know a bike like that thats been wrecked, can be picked up for 500-700 bucks and turned into a streetfighter. I just look at the ads and there is nothing for 2300. Some 91's and 92 gsxr's for the same price.

If the shocks are leaking how will i know, and is that an easy fix ?

Leaking forks is easy enough to fix really. You just take them off the bike and replace the seals. Might be an idea to refresh the oil (another easy job) while you're at it.

Just hold the front brake, bottom them out by pushing down hard. Feel the leg - if it's wet and oily it's got a leak.

Anything in particular i should listen for while it's running, that would indicate engine problems.

You have to keep in mind too that price range is different in Canada vs. US.

I've owned 4 J series now (what you're goin to look at), and they are IMO one of the best carbureted bikes you can buy (knock on wood).

I would say that you should just listen to make sure there are no alarming noises coming from the engine. Personally I would rebuy my bike for how much I did. It's a great bike, so great they had to remake it in 2006 or around there again because it was so good.

Now looking at a 98 zx9r. Lots of upgrades on it, leo vinci carbon fiber exhaust, corbin seat, integrated tail lights, tire hugger, new front tire, new rotors. He's asking 3000. I just saw it, looks and sound good. Anything particular about the zx9r of that year. I think i could get it for 2500
