If you bought it from a shop, I would take that thing back as soon as possible.

Take it back immediately

I am sure everyone will disagree :thumbsup: with me but take it back immediately. for what you paid it should be perfect


thats BS if their tryin to sell you a piece of SHI* like that! :busted:

and hiding it too! :worthy:

tell them to take their @%&* back and you want your money back!!!

dont be shy about it!! :thumbsup:

they noticed you weren't super experienced, and tried to sell it to you without letting you know of a MAJOR problem!

Listen to these guys. Take it back and demand service or money back. Thats a bunch of crap what they are trying to get away with.

Hey again guys you were all right thanks very much i got my dad in there and he had to threaten him to get his money back but at least i got it so thanks very much for all your replies greatly appreciated

While you're at it - since you got your money back - you should be able to find either a newer bike private sale for the same money or an 03 for a lot less private.
