Dear Speedy Lovers,
Being a newbie I am not sure how to assess this bike I am test riding tomorrow and am very grateful for any experienced heads that can give me some insight.

This crank cover looks damaged to me - from your experience is this something I need to be worried about? I asked him about it and he said he bought it like that and has not experienced any problems.

Can anyone give me a heads-up on what to look out for when examining and test driving an 07 - are there common issues from this model? It has 50,000kms, is for sale in Singapore. Many thanks in advance.

Thanks for your help. I had a look and there was a serious oil leak as you suggested. The crank cover also looked melted. In the end it didn't matter as he couldn't get the bike to start. We tried together for a while and I helped him get a new battery in it so he could drive it home, poor guy. But my search continues - Speed triple or bust!
