I did not tell my parents I bought a bike :drunk:. Good decisions, amirite.Haha, you don't want people on the internet to know your face?
Graffiti was an 08 scheme, either the bike is newer or the fairings have been replaced. Not a bad price thoughI got the bike for 5500$ from the dealer, a 2007 Graffiti CBR600RR with 7k miles (I was wrong about the 4k). There is 10% sales tax in nyc, so ended up being about 6100$ out the door.
Crud. So the bike had been dropped and all the fairings replaced? Oh well. I checked for damage on the handle bars/levers/mirrors/transmission and there was nothing.Graffiti was an 08 scheme, either the bike is newer or the fairings have been replaced. Not a bad price though
That would be my guess, but just give it a good look over. As long as the forks are straight, subframe is good and frame is intact you should be ok.Crud.

Who knows. I got it for a good price, and it runs fine (when the battery is alive) so I'm happy. It is definately a 2007 though, cause the VIN# and everything shows up with it being that year.
The bike was not a salvage title. The bike did not have frame sliders on it, so I suspect a low speed/parking lot tip over. The guy got a full set of graffiti fairings to replace his old ones, sounds good to me. The frame looks good, and the forks aren't screwed up. I drove it ~50 miles home from the dealer, and the thing ran like a beast.Not to put a damper on your plans, but you're buying a crashed bike (which they didn't bother to mention to you) that doesn't run sometimes. That doesn't sound like such a hot idea to me.
Thanks man. Not sure where my buddy got the Black & Decker charger, but I would guess places like Home Depot or Sears? Online also.where can i get that battery charger? i need one!! lol i think that might be better than a battery tender...and good luck with the new bike!
