Buying 2013 brutale 800 pre owned

Hey guys ive been planning to buy a second hand 2013 brutale 800 with 6000kms in odometer regardless of the price. Im a newbie rider. Any tips or what to check before buying the bike. Ive read about the throttle response issue is it worth buying?

Sprag replacement, tank swell or replacement, leaky oil pan gaskets. I have a 2013 675. Had all those issues.

The only thing that is sure to die is the gear position sensor. The other niggles are very dependent on sheer luck/bad luck. If you buy from a dealer get him to fix the gear position sensor when it dies, and get the latest mapping.
