5 Features to Consider When Buying a Used Motorcycle
The physical condition of the motorcycle is one of the most important features to consider when buying a second-hand motorcycle. Before buying, it should be examined whether the motorcycle is painted, whether there are any damage or scratches on its parts, whether parts such as tires, rims, brakes work without problems.
After the motorcycle is examined, the old and known name TRAMER (Traffic Insurance Information Center) record, new name SBM (Insurance Information and Surveillance Center) record should be checked in order to reach the maintenance done to the motorcycle in the past and the damages that occurred on the motorcycle. It is very easy to query the TRAMER record, you can reach the record by typing DETAIL blank motorcycle plate via SMS and sending a message to 5664. Again, you can access the damage record and mileage information of your motorcycle, if you have a reply via SMS. If the mileage recorded in the record is more than the mileage transmitted by the seller, it is useful to give up on buying that motorcycle. Mileage scams are a widely used tactic on second-hand motorcycles these days.
The chassis and the part connected to the chassis of the motorcycle are of vital importance. The fact that this part is painted can often indicate that the motorcycle has received a heavy blow and is trying to cover it with paint. A motorcycle master can tell if there is paint on the chassis at first glance, so it would be useful to show the engine you will buy to a master.While buying second-hand motorcycles another feature that you should pay attention is that the shock absorbers. The shock absorbers available at the front and rear can give a lot of information about how the bike is used and its current condition. You can check whether the motorcycle has received any impact by checking the shape of the front shock absorbers. It is very important to have information about motorcycle parts and to examine each part of the motorcycle separately before you start researching to buy a motorcycle. There may be problems such as unrecorded damage, mileage not matching the records.
The last point you should pay attention to is how the motorcycle is maintained and the originality of the parts. Especially motorcycles with Chinese-made parts can cost you expensive repairs in the future. Although it is not a requirement, it is more reassuring to have a service where you can have the motorcycle serviced, and it helps you not to be a victim of problems you may experience in the future.
