mileage?

hey guys possibly picking up a 07 600rr for a super cheap price because the guy is moving and is unable to take the bike with him so he is looking for a cheap and ast sale. The only thing turning me away from this bike is the fact that it has 25k on the clock. i wouldnt normally even consider a bike with 25k but the price is well good. any stories about high milage RRs? what to look for? i know he hadnt had a valve adjustment yet (i dont mind paying for that) as of now there isnt any ticking or tapping coming from the engine. so i need advice? hes willing to let it go for 3800 to me.

discuss. bike is super clean and 100 percent stock as well, minus rs5 slip on.

If its legit go for it. My 2006 suzuki has around 25k aswell. Runs hella strong.

Check the oil level, chain, wheel thread, damaged frame, temperatures, etc...

If you dont buy it, PM me the location to see if its near me so i could buy it.

High mileage doesn't mean it's a bad bike. If its been well maintained and treated right then it will be just fine.

QFT!!! depending on your location OP that is a good deal. around here 3800 for and 04-05 is still a good deal. my 03 has 20K on it and runs like a champ. as long as the bike has been well maintained and kept clean you shouldn't have any problems. there's a reason honda's are known for reliability. there's guys on here that use they're bike year round and have 50K, 100K, even upto 200K

I have an 05 with about 22k on it and it runs great. Ppl say the engine isn't fully broken in until around that millage anyway. Honestly, if the bike is still on the road at 25k it means it was maintained and the rider wasn't an idiot. Most bikes don't get that high of millage simply b/c ppl wreck them before that. Just get the valves done and chain/sprockets and you should be g2g

ppl say a lot of things. your engine will bed in the rings into the walls of your cyl during the first few dozen miles. After that is just wear, a lot of which comes from starting rather than running.

I wouldn't know what to call high mileage on a sport bike. I've seen people blow 30k + miles and 1500mi engines at the track. Maintenance, type of riding, the rider itself there's so many factors that affect it. Do your own assesment of the bike. 25k is not unheard of. Neither is 35 or 40. Above that i've heard of few people, but i think mostly because they wreck it rather than blow the engine.

Engine isn't your only concern at mileage.. gotta check bearings, headset play, suspension, really ride and feel the bike basically to determine how much work you'll put into the bike - YOU WILL put work into the bike from day 1, you can also NEVER trust a seller.. just saying from experience. Do everything "again" if you have the smallest doubt.

What is wrong with 25k Miles? Have you never owned a bike before? Who told you 25k was a high milage bike?

My 03 has just a hair under 25k and runs just as strong as when I first bought it with 18k in May. Can still do power wheelies all day and my personal mechanic says my bike is in perfect mechanical condition.

I agree that they can run very strong after 25k+ but Unfortunately most people believe that's high mileage for a sport bike.
