I have planned to buy a second hand Avenger, Oct 2005 model, run abt 6000 kms. Whilst test riding the bike i found the bike was pulling slightly to the right. I believe the bike may have been involved in an accident or fall. My question is , if I decide to buy the bike, how much should I offer. And If i do buy it, how much would i have to spend to repair the bike? Please enlighten me

Stay away from an accident piece.
Check for smoking engines. (Smoke coming out from exhaust at very high RPMs)
Oil leaks near block-head joint.
Leave hands from handlebar at speeds around 40-60KMPH in isolated road and check if bike keeps rolling straight.
Check for small accident pointers like scraped leg guards, handle bar weights, foot pegs etc. new side indicators, tail lights etc.
Can remember only these many points now.
