Hi, everyone. New user here. I have a quick question about a M50 i'm considering purchasing.
Here it is: 2005 M50 with 3500 miles. $3000.
Visually, the bike looks to be in decent condition. The chrome needs to be cleaned, but it is nothing bad. It has aftermarket highway hawk turndown pipes which look nice and aggressive. It has been lowered too, which I don't particularly care for but it is okay. The electrical seems to be okay, as do the tires. It looks like the tank might have been painted, but I cannot confirm as it is at a used car dealership. There also seems to be a coating in the gas tank.
The first cold start was fine... I turned it off after it idled, but had trouble starting it again. It would only turnover with the application of light throttle. The same thing happened after I turned it off again to restart. The "FI" indicator was present, and the red check engine light was on when the key was in the ignition.
Any ideas what this is all about?
