I would like to introduce myself, my name is Jeff, and am a new Honda owner.
Coming from a previous dedicated Suzuki owner (01 gsxr600, 02 gsxr600, 02 gsxr1000, 05 gsxr600) I've finally made a change to a Honda. Well, sorta, as I've been riding an 02 F4i for the winter. But to say the least, it's going to be Honda's all year round this time!
One thing that I could say is that F4i has been soooo reliable that I opted for the change!
Of course the 600rr rides way different, but im looking forward to learning about it more!
It's a 2007 600rr. Located in Vancouver BC, I've been looking for a few months and actually was going to buy a 08' gsxr1000 till I checked the vin number and found it was a rebuild and had a lien on it! Guy lied and luckily I've checked. Then thought about it some more, I really don't need a liter bike as I just need it to commute to work. The cbr600rr has better reviews than most and as I said, it seems to be most reliable.
I looked and looked, found newer 600rr's with lower km's but you can tell it was run hard or not maintained properly (clunky).
Then I found this from a dealer with a decent price... completely stock, looks good (same colour as my old gixxer) and runs smooth as butter!
I couldn't pass it up as quite a few thing they had in stock at a wicked deal (below cost). Rumble fender eliminator, set of led lights, Leo Vince exhaust, pazzo levers and a Shoei x12 lid. Needless to say, the bike is apart now and mods are being installed!
Here're a few pics from the dealer and first day home... pics of upgrades to follow.

just an update guys, here's a few pics of what I've done since stock one month ago incuding:
-Leo Vince exhaust
-led turn signals with led front flush mounts
-Blue Shorty adjustable levers
- Adjustable rearsets
-Solo seat (covered in vinyl cf wrap because color was off when ordered)
- Carbon fiber accents (vinyl)
- Scorpio alarm
- Rim tape
Yikes. Why did Leo Vince do that and have the new pipe stick out so much? Thanks for sharing though
Yeah, thats what thought too after installing but i guess i've become acustomed to it. I was going to take an inch off of it using a pipe cutter but havent gotten around to it yet. I've even looked at pictures online before purchasing and it didn't seem this bad...
