I have gambled on a Candy Apple Green Meanie, because it was pretty and cheap. I'm hoping it won't be like a female parallel:nono: It has 25,600 km or around 16,000 miles. I have changed the oils, and checked it over. No metal lumps in the screen. The question I will ask is if the knocking sound at idle is common, as I have read, or is it more sinister? The sound goes away when I pull away and the bike has mucho get up and go. It is all stock, so the mufflers don't hide engine noises. It seems to be uppermost in the engine and maybe more to the right, but I can't be sure.
