Ok I just got back from looking at one. I like the bike but I have one concern when I got back from test ride I noticed alittle line of oil trickling down the engine. It looked like it was coming from one of the carbs. What would cause this? Really want this bike but don't want to have to fix it before I can ride it.. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Could be blow-by. Check the air filter housing for oil. If it has oil in the filter housing you probly don't want it. Is the oil comin from the engine side or the filter side.

He told me he had takin the housing off and it was probably because it wasnt seated back on properly. Could this be a cause?

@Hayweed Thanks for the quick reply.
