    Hey guys, looking at used R6 with cosmetic damage :squint: in the ad.

    I'm wondering how I can check for frame damage, aka the important stuff.
    Any of you guys know the weak spots on the r6 frame etc.

    Im very skeptical since its half the price of the going price on trader,etc..

    Im just low on cash and it looks to be a possibility.

    he never said it was his first bike

    cosmetic damage is expensive to repair. I bought mine cheap because it was dropped but frame untouched

    to touch the fram you usually need a good hit!!!
