Looking to purchase a 2005 650 Burgman tomorrow, and was hoping somebody here may have ideas on what I should check out? The scooter has 23,000 miles, and was recently purchased at an estate sale by the seller. I know he rode it home around 50 miles or so when he picked it up a couple months ago, and a little around the area since... (not sure how long it sat before that). He says he changed the spark plug and changed the oil so far... lol. I'm a long time "regular"motorcycle rider, but know nothing about these scooters... (although my first bike was a Vespa 90, over 50 years ago)  Thought I'd give the Scooter another try...

Search B650 stopper bolt.. Other than that, I'd check the fluids and ride it like I stole it!!!!!

Ask him if he changed both spark plugs, there are two.  Do the stopper bolt as suggested.

Look at the date on the tire, inspect the tires.   Inspect/clean and/or replace the air filter, brake pads, brake oils.

This site is highly recommend

Welcome from Athens, Greece.
I'm not a B650 rider but there are plenty of them around here with years of experience.
