Hi there.

Also what price is good.

Tinted High Euro Windshield,
Showa Steering Damper,
Showa Rear Shock
Brembo Brakes/Hoses
New CORSA Diablo Tyres
Recent massive service: All Belts, New Chain/Sprockets,All Filters

Assuming you're in the UK, are you buying privately or from a dealer with a warranty? if private I think it's about £400 overpriced, But a dealer would probably want £3800.

If it's got any warranty it would be wise to get it checked for flaked rockers, if there are any get them done under warranty either before you buy it or get assurance, in writing, that they will sort it.

As for Carbon Fibre Swingarm - they're nice & light but I would be concerned about it's integrity if it's a few years old and didn't know the history - is the original included with the bike?
