    need a little help

    I have been offered a 98 gsx limited with 68 hours on it and double trailer for $1000. Problem is it just clicks when you go to start it. Is there a way to test compression without the starter? It is his daughters machine so he knows next to nothing about it. He said she brought it to a mechanic and they said it needed a new starter. What should I look for on this thing? My fear is that it is a seized motor.

    Sounds too good to be true!!

    Ask him if he's willing to go halfs on the price that it costs to have a mechanic look it over and see what's wrong, and have the motor checked. If it is just the starter. they are cheap (under $100) and you'd still have a great deal, if that's all that's wrong!
