suitability and price
I've found a 1999 TT600r for £1200 (uk) this appears to be a good 800 below anything i've seen a similar aged TT selling for.
The bike looks to be in good cond and the (mature) owner tells me he's only used it as a daily commuter bike.
I have a couple of questions if anyone could help me.
1) Is the £1200 as good a price as it seems for a 99 TT600r or have i just been looking in the wrong places to find comparable prices?
2) Is the TT600 suitable for my purpose, a mixture of comuting,light touring (just a tailpack on the back) and very gentle off road riding (simple green lane stuff, nothing drastic).
Its the road stuff i'm not sure about.
3) Are there any common mechanical issues with the TT600 that i need to be aware of, weak gearbox,heavey oil consumption, any internal problems in the motor?
4) finally, I've not had a kick start only bike for a long time, How easy are they to start? my last was an old used klr600 about 10 years ago and i remember that being a pig to get going and it got threw 2 cylinder heads due to blocked oil ways in the short time that i had it so you can maybe understand my caution with the TT.
heres a couple of recent pics of the bike
