Whether you’re purchasing a new motorcycle or are looking to get a used model, there are multiple ways to protect yourself from purchasing a lemon motorcycle. A lemon motorcycle is one that is sold to you with malfunctioning parts that cannot be fixed. In order to avoid purchasing a lemon, our Los Angeles lemon law attorney would like to share some tips with you about avoiding a lemon motorcycle.
The following are important when purchasing a motorcycle to keep you from accidentally ending up with a lemon:
- Check the tires thoroughly – look for any wear, imbalances, or other problems with the tires
- Take a thorough test drive – look for any colored exhaust gas, soot on the exhaust, listen for any abnormal sounds, and pay attention to any abnormal smells. Any of these could be indications of a problem with the bike.
- Find out all of the important details about the warranty – get the full warranty in writing and, if it’s covered by a third party, ensure that you get all of the details
- Document everything about your purchase and test drive – keep track of all information about your bike and ensure that it’s in writing
