    Few Beginner questions before purchase uk

    Hi. Been looking through forum and it's absolutely awesome. Amazing community .

    Never owned a raptor before but always wanted since team dreaming days. Now I'm 26 and finally everything is much easier to own 1. I
    I am contemplating getting a rappy 700 coming to Christmas, and I am just trying to put all my homework together before purchase . I am probably gonna go for a newish bike so I can keep for a good few years hopefully trouble free.

    Firstly I am wondering will this be ok as I'm complete novice.

    I am using 95% for road usage . Mainly to commute to work 10 miles 1 way . Was wondering how the stock tyres will hold up on road tarmac. How much overall milege before they will they need replacing ?

    I have read a tonne on servicing the machine and I get a mixed review on servicing intervals . Roughly how often does oil need to be dropped out and filter changed ? I will be doing road riding nothing hard-core .

    Anything else you guys maybe can point out to me with regards to maintenance etc ..just so I can get a look into everything before purchase .

    Most of the guys here will never ride on pavement much. Most of the USA wont allow it. Stock tires are pretty soft and wont last long on roads. I have seen most people in other countries either set it up for on road or off road. You may have to choose unless you like buying new tires. When looking at used bikes, just look how well they were taken care of. Some people just beat them and put them away. The cleaner they are the better the bike you will be buying. Look under it. Look for damage to frame and A arms. That will tell you how much it was used. Check the rear end for a broken subframe from flipping backwards. Check the coolant to make sure there is no oil in it. Check the oil for coolant. If all checks out its probably a good bike.

    Coop we miss you brother..
