I'm selling a used 2005 Honda CBR 600rr. It has about 7100 miles on it. The aftermarket parts are:
Slip-on Yoshimura RS-5
Steel-braided front and back brake lines
Red Demon Eyes
Black powder coated stator and clutch covers
Pazzo short adjustable brake and clutch lever (red&black)
Aftermarket turnsignal (black housing with led)
Aftermarket Integrated taillight
Fender Eliminator with license lights (uninstalled)
Michelin 2ct front(brand new) and rear has about 80% thread life
The only problem is that the paint job hasn't been smooth it out yet, it has a acouple fish eyes on the tank. Other than that this bike run perfect. No power commander or any engine mod. I also will throw the 520 chain convertion that I haven't installed yet if you get this bike for $5600

Thank you Nixinus. The title says reconstructed title. The light is the one that you needed to light up the plate at night so the popo won't bother you. I will try to get the pic of that fish eye I was talking about.

yeah....cbRRacing said that the title stated "reconstructed" which means that someone that had a dealers license bought it salvage, rebuilt it and had it inspected by the local police and or the local DMV to verify that the bike had been "rebuilt" so they could issue a new title so that it can be registered. So basicly the bike had been totaled by an insurance company....not saying that rebuilt bikes are junk...i rebuild bikes to make extra money....but they are definately not worth as much as a bike with a clean title.

I bough it for $6000 and it's been build by a local shop who got it from the auction. I wouldn't call it totaled, unless I don't know what you mean by totaled. Because when I pick the bike, the frame and everything is brand new with no scratch at all. The damaged was only the fairings. I had to make them replaced the fairings with the OEM not the aftermarket. I had to inspect it myself first otherwise I wouldn't buy it. A title is just a title it don't mean anything. It's how you take care the bike that makes the bike diff. I take pride in taking care my bike. And I know my bike is a great bike with a great condition beside the paint job. And my price is a good price considered all the aftermarket stuff I add on.

im not saying anything about your bike bro...im simply stating that since it has a reconstructed title that an insurance company has totaled out the bike....i have seen bikes that you can get on it and start it up and ride it for miles....but they still totalled it due to the cost of labor and replacement parts (even if they are just scratched) being more than like 40 or 50 percent of the bikes going value. All i am saying is that a bike is only worth what someone will pay for it....and a reconstructed title will definately steer some people away from paying the blue book value just because it has a rebuilt title. Basicly a rebuilt title kinda kills the value of the bike...and im not saying i agree with it...im just trying to educate you a little more about it. I used to work in a shop where all we did was buy salvage bikes rebuild them and sell them for a profit.

I know what you are saying and I have nothing agains you. This is my first bike and that's why I bought it used from the salvage bike store. It's a good learnig bike and I know it's hard to convinced people that a rebuild bike is a good bike. They have to see it to believe it.
So what you mean by totaled it is they sell the bike in the auction? Not totaled it as in destroyed it right?

Sorry tyo jack thread but which one is better a salvage title or a rebuilt title??

Which one would u buy? ST or RT

Or they are the same-value wise thanks

Anyways
I agree with the op I bought a salvage title bike and it runs fine chp etc check it and everyting ok
I also agree with lagwagon its really sux to have a ST or RT cuz it lowers the market value of the bike so maybe lower the price gl with the sale bro

here is the deal...when someone downs their bike and they claim it on their insurance...somtimes it would cost more to fix the bike than what the insurance company thinks its worth...so then they pay off the bike if their is a lean against it...then they own the bike and they issue it a salvage title. The only difference between a salvage title and a rebuilt title is that a salvage title is a bike that has not yet been repaired or inspected...once the bike is repaired and inspected by the local police or dmv...then they will issue a rebuilt title for the bike...thus everyone knowing that the bike was salvage at one time. If your wanting to buy a bike that is salvage...you will need a good knowledge of bikes and how to work on them and hope that you can repair it for less than what you can sell it for (so the bike is worth more than what you have into it). If you dont know your way around all parts of the bike then i would recomend buying a rebuilt title bike....but make sure to have someone with you that knows what to look for in a rebuilt bike....lots of people like to cut corners when rebuilding a bike so they can maximize their profit when they sell it. Hope this clears things up for you guys.
