Hello everybody,

I'm going to see a very cheap 1982 Kz750 Ltd (750 euro) and was wondering wether there were any common flaws I have to look out for or questions I need to ask the owner. I suppose you all would know what to look out for. Thanks in advance!

750 euro = $894.56
$894.56 is not much money in usa, more likely a project that needs work, so look it over and decide if you want it and can fix anything broken.
Where are you ?

Give us more info.
Is this a running or non running bike?
If non-running, how long has it been setting? Double reply or verify with last inspection or registration.
If non-running and has not been setting too long, put in high gear and push, you should be able to feel compression bumps.
Check inside of gas tank for massive rust.
Check for rusted out exhaust.
Kept uncovered outside or garaged?
Shade tree mechanic or professionally maintained?
Is it stock or been modified?

Not sure where you're located but kz750 ltd's are plentiful and usually inexpensive bikes to buy and own.Unless it's running I would keep looking and maybe save a little more cash.Like anything in life,pay now or pay later.Not to mention I'm sure you want to get on and ride,if it's a project that may not happen for a while.
