I just bought (September 11) a second-hand 2009 ZX-6R, Monster Special Edition, for the very reasonable price of 6500$ CAD (6300 USD). The mileage was very low (987 km/613 mi), the machine seemed to be in very good condition when I visually inspected it, and was (and is until November) still covered by Kawasaki’s warranty. Before I bought it, I had it fully inspected at a motorcycle dealer garage (www.rpmrivesud.com
), and they found it in excellent condition.
Before buying it, I questioned the owner on how hard he had been riding, and if he had respected the break in max recommended rpms, but he was quite evasive about this. After the sale, he admitted that he had been doing intense accelerations up to 12000 rpms, "but only occasionally”. This is more than 2x the max recommended rpm for the first 1000 kms (620 mi).
1) Is it possible to verify if the engine was abused by overrevving?
2) What kind of consequences could this have if it happened ?
3) What can I do about it ?
