Hi all. Having procrastinated about buying an Mt350 for a long time I'm now on the hunt for a decent one to buy. Hopefully should have something sorted out in a couple of weeks. Any leads, advice or general banter appreciated.
A bit of background, I've been riding and building bikes since I was a kid and have a constantly changing line up of wrecks and projects on the go all of the time.
I've learned that everyday is a school day where bikes are concerned and that you will never know everything (or in my case anything).
Always listen to people's advice even if you don't take it.
Hammers always try to hit thumbs.
Screw drivers are not chisels or paint stirrers.
Electrical problems are caused by evil spirits that need to be exorcised by a priest.
The tool you just used is never where you left it.
'Suit enthusiast' means the bike for sale will never run again.
One mans 'cool' is another mans WTF!
Puddles on the trail are always deeper than you think.
Anyway Hi all :-)

All the best

Steve

Welcome to the forum
Advice ?
Ask if there are any owners in your area and go to see a bike up close Buy him a beer/ coffee and fit out the nitty gritty

It doesn't matter who you buy from, know what should and should not be there eg make of carb

Common omissions ? Pannier frame and boxes, standard tools that fit into the tool box

When you do buy one fit a new clutch cable and leave the old one routed through but with ends taped up (they fail at the lever end with no warning)

Always carry a spare cambelt

There are 3 oil filters, primary, main and sump gauze

Clean earth points especially behind horn

Calipers can get filthy and clog up
