That's a perfect example of why I never buy used bikes with ridiculously low mileage. Did it once ( a ninja 250 that was 4 yrs old and only had 2000 miles on it), the damn bike never did run right and caused me all kinds of hassle. My 2016 V1K , which i bought new in 2017, now has 42,000 miles on it. I'd buy it if it was for sale used before I'd buy the same bike with only 2300 miles. Bikes are NOT cars, they don't do well sitting for extended periods of time. Just my $.02 worth. :scooter:
A leaking fork seal is not a deal breaker.

 +1, and as of yet we don't know that the seals need replacing.
