Hey guys, im new here. Im in the market to buy another street bike and I'd like some advice. This time I have my eye on a 2014 FZ09. The guy said it needed a power commander due to the idle and It has a full akrapovic exhaust. Im concerned this may not just be a simple P.C. fix ( possibly damage to engine). And if so where can I get more info for a tune and cost for something like this?

Mileage appx. 7000 plus
Price on bike $5000

Any insights on this and/or other things to keep a look out for. Much appreciated.

If your not particularly knowledgeable on mechanical stuff (and you can't easily get the bike inspected by someone who is) then I wouldn't buy a bike with issues. It may be something minor or it may not. Not worth the risk if your in no place to judge it for yourself.

There will be more out there.

Also needing a tune our power commander to fix an idle issue is not a thing.

How rough is the idle?

$5000 for a 2014 with 7,000 miles and possible mechanical problems is no deal. If it was me, I'd keep looking because there are always more bikes out there. Always.

And I don't trust Pomeranians who just upgrade the master cylinder reservoir cap.

Use the 5k for a down payment and finance the rest on a brand new bike
No going wrong there....
