Thumbs up 02 F4s 750

The tyres are defo a bin job - rubber goes off over time. You'd want to change ALL fluids and filters at the very least, including the cooling system, and check for internal corrosion. Check the condition of the fuel tank inside and likely replace the fuel lines. Inspect brake pads and check all moving parts for seizure. If you do everything on the 7,500 mile (12k kms) Major Service check list in the Manual you should be well on the way. If it's been stored correctly and the price is right then it could be a good find.

If you're not living life on the edge - you're taking up too much space!

The battery is another item that will probably need replacing if its been stored for a long period.

Thumbs up Welcome!

Congratulations ALT!! If it's a genuine SPR with original plaque on head stock and that kind of low milage then that sounds to me like you've done well! Any pics?

With that mileage, for that price, I think an SPR is a good buy. Congrats, please post up some pics.
