Going to look at a 2005 drz400sm tomorrow, it has a knock. What should I look for/ask about?

Recommended Posts

So this bike would be my ladies first bike. I own vintage and brand new and am comfortable doing work on a bike to an extent. Can anyone tell me what I should look for when I see the bike? Knock at idle and goes away at high rpm? Ask if certain things changed? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

It's hard enough to determine what that knock is when you hear it in person let alone by description ;)

If I would by a bike like that I would assume that it is bad and I'll have to take the engine apart. So decide if price is worth to give it a try. And you can be pretty sure there will be smth else, it's not a new bike, so try to inspect other things also.
