Need advise

This might be the wrong section but I need help with what to look for on a 04 600. Is there any thing in particular I need to be aware of when lookin at the bike. I know it has sat dry for a few years and the starter clutch is toasted. And are the keys chipped? It was a bike that was impounded and I'm thinking about picking it up. Any advise is welcom

You want to be in the Supersport forum, so that's where this thread is going to go. How many miles on the bike? Not that it's a big deal, since a well treated Triumph four cylinder will last just about forever. No, there's no chip in the key, so a good locksmith should be able to deal with it. Be aware that Triumph blanks can be hard to come by. It my have toasted its starter and that's why it sat. I'm not sure why the starter would die. These bikes have electrical issues typical of bikes that age, because the stator and regulator/rectifier tend to go out after a while, but that's true of just about any bike you can buy around that era.

It's a squid thing. You wouldn't understand.

Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.
