I wouldn't be splitting between cars on this bike. Others would, I wouldn't! (I don't do it anyway!)
As per a major issue I recently had, along with many owners, check to see if the bike has had the fuel line quick disconnects on the right hand side of the bike changed. You need the steel fittings, not plastic, as they WILL fail and spray pressurised fuel over your bike, and maybe engine. Not a good thing, and a well known design fault.
Check with the seller - dealer that all recalls have been acted on, and if possible, ask for proof.
Others will have a more exhaustive list of things to check, but mine has been well sorted.
They are a great bike, and I've owned both a 2004 GT and a 2004 RS. (Literally just got home from a 1000km ride on the RS an hour ago).
Ride safe and enjoy your GT.
