Whats up hommies I am looking into buying an R6 for the wife, she is taller than me and I wouldnt mind having a blue mistress in the garage. Anyways the bike is an 06 but with 30k miles on it. Its only $4500 and its from local trusted dealership plus it will be my wifes intro bike to the 600cc world. I think that as long as the bike was maintained properly I shouldnt have any issues. Minus the Flamers, what do you guys think?
making it into your own silver leaf blend isn't as ambitious as rolling gold leaf, yo?
any chance for warranty? sometime the extended warranty will 'really' pay off. that mileage w/proper maintenance is nothing for a modern sportbike motor. most can easily go beyond high six figures ie beyond 150k w/out ever needing valve adjustment. it's ridiculous how good the standard tolerances of the motors too. the yammies are more high strung though & tend to have more occurrences of failure. just keep on the maintenance & will be fine.
lower, it's a buyer market
race/ride support 2012 & beyond

Thanks ridinghood and yes I can buy a warranty from the dealer. Also keep in mind this is my wife's first 600. So I really don't mind the mileage as long as the motor will hold up. I will talk the price the down though.
Thanks crash. I went to look at and there are some nicks and dings here and there so I would bid low. Her brother in law has an r6 and she likes it. I'm hoping with the new lines of cbrs out that the price will come down a little
06's had issues with oil pressure at idle. the newer motors have addressed that issue, but without having work done to an older motor, the problem can still rear its head. i have seen numerous 06-07's blow because of this issue.
