    Hi all I'm viewing this 2019 765rs Saturday.the owner bought it in 2020 with 600 miles on from A1 triumph in york. Due to his circumstances he's only managed another 640 miles since he's owned it... I know its probably wants a service its had its first mot in November obviously flew through it... has anyone had one and is there anything to look out for while viewing... ill do hpi check on it naturally.

    Looks clean as it should, really. If it's done that little milage, then it's spent a lot of time standing, so basic checks would be tyres, inside of the tank, breaks, oil. It would definitely be worth a full service due to time over milage. Break fluid takes on water over time, so it will need changing, oil filter, coolant, and so on. Factor that I to price unless he can show its just been done.

    They are a relatively simple bike, so if the HPI comes back clean, then there's not much to them. Make sure the dash works fine. If you can test, ride it, do. Follow your nose. If it feels right, it normally is.

    Looks very nice - it was either the 765 or the Daytona for me - ended up with the Daytona because me and the wife preferred the looks :rolleyes:
