New Guy

Hey all, sold my 2005 gsxr expecting a transfer that never came so i bought a train wreck of an '04 cbr600rr. When i got it, It looked like it was given to a thirteen year old to customize. Its almost normal again, and I've used this forum a lot so far so i went ahead and joined.

Well i only took one before picture, and it doesn't really show most of the flaws. Off the top of my head so far I've dealt with a brand new chain that was put on but never sized (far too long) and two rusty ass sprockets, The tail end was lowered so far the bike stands straight up when on the stand-the hugger is melted-and the rear shock resevoir is bent from colliding with the rear seat lock key hole, whoever adjusted the front suspension did so with an air ratchet and a flat head drill and only on one side of the fork, the cluster is hanging by the wires, the two windscreen bolts in the picture are the only windscreen bolts, the clutch lever was at one point adjustable but no longer, the clutch was adjusted in so far that the lever travel was 95% slop which left a solid 1/4 inch of actual clutch pull, it had one mirror which was broken, both rear sets are of the cheap ebay variety and are both kind of jiggly which is annoying because the mounting hardware is so corroded they wont tighten or loosen, the brake lever on the ghetto rear set has no hook up for the brake switch or even the return spring so i have to lift the brake lever back up with my toe or im fighting the rear brake, the front tire is brand new on the shoulders but showing threads down the middle, the front brake lever is held.together.with.zip.ties. which broke during test ride, no blinkers worked and the tail light flickered, there were no front blinkers or front blinker holes, im starting to think the front rotors are warped, all three calipers need rebuilding (maybe), the sweet D&D duals are rusted almost through, there is no longer any clear coat, there are wires everywhere except where i look for them, the list goes on. I definitely got a "DEAL" at $2500

Haha, damn! Hope you got a good deal on it.

Edit - just read the whole post - 2500 isn't bad, but I'm sure you've put quite a bit into at well

Thanks for the welcomes, and surprisingly I haven't had to spend that much. I have found eBay to be a fantastic resource for minor things. I'm looking into fairings now but I'm not sure which Chinese entity is most worth the gamble. Guess we'll see how it goes...
