Great thread. Just found it. Here's a quick rundown:

'08 CBR1000RR (sold last year)



And the replacement--'91 CBR600F2
As purchased (with other parts in boxes):



Carbs cleaned and reassembled:





Partially together for the first test fire since late 90s:



And finally all dressed up with nowhere to go:





I've referred to it as the "Mattel Barbie" Honda in the "My Little Pony" color scheme...

I've stumbled onto an 04 RR with 6k miles for 4500. Would that be reasonable if there is nothing wrong with it when I go look at it?

Anything I should look out for in a 04 RR? Pictures on Craigslist aren't very good...

It should be near Mint for that price
Seems a little high to me
But that might be local market fluctuations

would 4k be a fair offer if its in good shape? Guy says there is no damage and it's completely stock.

Looking around, I'm not sure. Sport bikes really are all over the place. If it's in great condition, maybe?

That's what I've found too.

Seen some on ebay not sell for 3500, but all had more miles. Never seen one above 4k, but still, never seen one with only 6000 miles either. I think I'll show up with $3800 cash and be willing to go to 4 if it's pristine.

thats very cool! I have an autographed pic of Bubba Shobert on the 92 F2.He was doing a promo tour for Honda and was at a local shop,it was after he recovered from his crash.

Do the 600rr's have any significant issues to look out for? What should I look at specifically on an 04?

How hard/expensive are they to maintain? I've never had a FI bike before. What would I expect within the next 10000 miles? It currently has 6k.

How is the reliability on these bikes? I assume being a sport bike they're pretty high-strung. Do the engines last a while?


Thanks for the help everyone.

As long it hasn't lived it's life on the track and been reasonably maintained, there shouldn't be any issues of note. Only semi-weak spot I've heard of is the CCT. Simple to replace it with an APE manual CCT and yer good ot go.

Somewhere on the interwebz, I've seen a guy who claims to have put on over 200,000 miles of sport/touring/track riding on his RR. If I wasn't so lazy and useless, I'd google it for ya, but...well...

Shifting sucks

1978 CB400A. these pics are from the day i put some Sportster mufflers on. the PO scrapped the rusted-out originials before I bought it. it needs some tank paint, a seat recover, and a new CDI.

My 99' 600F4.




Checking valves, new plugs, replaced a couple cracked vacuum lines, air filter, prefilters and fuel filter. Ran good before doing that...runs great now!
