Helo everyone.

I am looking to buy a 2008 CBR600rr graffiti edition within the next few weeks and have found a few but don't know which is the better deal. I'm hoping i can get helpfull feedback from anyone on here.

the first bike is located in RI, I live in MA so it would take me about an hour to travel to the bike.

1) it has 19K miles on it. (i know its high, but is it too high?) he's asking $6800. I think that is too much for a bike with that kind of mileage on it, but maybe i'm wrong? He says he had an oil change, tune-up, new chain, and new tires all done by a shop on 9/16/13. So i know I would have to get a new oil changed and I would probably change the chain (just to be safe & and because I want to go with a -1 +2 setup anyways). Would I have to replace anything else? or do you think it would require any major maintenence in the near future?

Here is the link on CL: http://providence.craigslist.org/mcy/4380264758.html



2) the second bike is locate in MA. it has 2,500 miles on it. The owner says he has babied it. he put on new tires, new oil change, HID lights, yoshi slip-on, 520 -1 +2 chain, ASV levers, double buble windscreen. he is asking for $8,000. From the pics i saw, the bike looks to be in good condition. I think he may have siad that there might be a small scratch on one side of the tail. I'm not sure.

Unfortunetly i can't put pics of it in this thread. they are on my phone and I am using a public computer right now.


3) the last one I saw was this one. it looks a bit rusty and not well taken care of. he's asking for $8,000 and says hes been offered $7500 from a dealer (i don't beleive him on that). He says its got Red & blue Halos (need re-wiring) with 8,000 miles. Oh, and he also says the gas guage is broken too!

Here are the pics he sent me:








What do you guys think is the best deal? do yo think I can do better?

Any input would be helpfull.

Thanks alot.

I bought my graffiti last summer with 4k miles for 5500. I cannot view the pics on my phone but there is no way I'd spend more than 6 on any of the above bikes you mentioned. Tell that person who told you a dealership offered him 7500 to take it ASAP cuz noone will come near that . He's most likely lying.

Haha I told him that a couple weeks ago and he told me that If i didn't buy it from him he would sell it to them and I could go buy it for 8500 at the dealership. the funny thing is that I know the dealership that he said offered him that money and they don't have a graffiti for sale lol

lol he's full of it. he has no offers near 7500. dont bite at that.

that first one looks like a really good bike for 19k miles.
I wouldn't pay more than 5500 for it though.

The second one, i might pay up up to 6 for. maybe a little more. The ASV levers are nice, new tires is a plus assuming he added them recently and if you dont want the yoshi you can sell it.

KBB on an 08 600rr in excellent condition from a dealer is $6k. Dealerships will take that and tack on ******** fees for inspections and stuff. But then you have taxes and licensing fees too so expect to leave a dealership around $7500 deep if you know what you're doing.

Trade in on it will be around $4k.

Private party, sales on an excellent condition rr will be around 6k. No more.
