FZR 400

I bought this recently for my sister who was planning to do her test and I was going to sort it out and have it ready for her. Due to a change in her circumstances she now won't be doing it for the foreseeable and the bike is therefore surplus to requirements.

The bike runs but currently prefers the choke and does not like to tick over, get her warmed up and she is rideable but you need to keep the revs up (I haven't done a serious journey on her nor would I at the moment.) All of this screams CARBS to me but the previous owner also said that he had adjusted the exup valve so it was always open, so... A few bits there but nothing dire. 

The bike is cosmetically challenged and it would seem that at some point someone was going to do a paint job but seemingly started with far to heavy a paper for rubbing, it has since been sprayed black. the fairings have marks and show signs of previous repair (albeit not bad ones.)

If I were keeping it I'd be looking at the carb issues, adjusting the exup valve and either replacing the plastics or starting the present ones over (using filler primer!) That said, I can not guarantee that this is all it would need and the MOT runs out this week.

Thats pretty much the bad of it but there is plenty of good (apart from the fact it runs.)

I have had a reasonably good look through it and as far as I can see;

The forks are good and apparently had new seals not long ago
Good tyres
Brakes work and seem very good
Discs have plenty left in them as do the pads
Chain and Sprockets don't look like they have been used much
Rear shock seems ok despite being an advisory on the MOT.
Exhaust is original "EXUP" can & Headers look good
Wiring seems sound
Wheel Bearings feel good
& other than the plastics the bike is actually quite clean and tidy

It seems to me that the bike has been well kept and looked after but unfortunately someone had plans for it which they didn't see through.

I am fairly flexible Friday & over the weekend if you would like to view / buy. The bike is located in Snodland, Kent with easy access from the M25, M20, M2, A20, A25, A2 and so on and could potentially be ridden away at the buyers risk. Please call / message me (Greg) over the weekend on 07703135589 though after Monday please call Dave on 07596758782 as I am away and the bike will be with him. Please ask an questions and I will do my best to answer asap.

ONO - I am open to sensible / reasonable offers, quick sale and so on and could also deliver the bike within reason, prior agreement and costs etc (although I don't want to bring the bike to you for you to have a look at it and end up taking it home again.)

Great honest little bike, mileage is approx 29,000 Kilometers which is only 18000 (ish) miles, some old MOTs too. I currently have the green slip as I am awaiting the full log book, it may be here in time if not then arrangements can and  obviously will be made.
