Hey Guys-

Bit of a newb question here, but I'm in need of some expert advice. I'm looking at an 05 RR with 5100 miles on it. The price seems right, but I want to be cautious with this one. I was wondering about the mileage. Obviously 5000 miles on a bike is different than 5000 miles on a car. What's right? Is 5000 considered high for a bike? Any/all input would be awesome. Thanks, guys!

well you want to also look are there any look or mechanical faults. But if both are looking good then i would say that is a good deal becuz over here in Minnesota a dealer ship there was an 05 with about 5k miles for about 7k. i got my 04 with 3k miles for 6k.

5000 miles isn't a lot. It shows mild to moderate usage. I would ask for a record of when and where it was serviced. I ride occassionally to work and about twice a month on a weekend ride and I have about 5,000 miles on an '05 myself.

The guy wants 6500 for it. But I don't think I'll have any trouble getting it for 6000. Maybe even less. I just need to check it out to make sure everything's in line. I just wanted to check out the mileage. Keep the input coming.

5,000 miles on a Honda is nothing.

I have just a little under 44,000 on my 03.The only thing I've ever had a problem with is the transmission and that just happened.

Damn 44k on an 03' - that is a lot of seat time.

I have an '05 and have about 6500 miles.

I ride it pretty often and mostly all year. I haven't had any problems with it at all. 5,000 is nothing.

5-8k miles a year here is considered a lot. It those lucky guys who get to ride the whole year that put like 10-15k miles on their bikes a year.

to add to this, it's not always good to have a low mileage bike.. bikes need to be ran .. if you find a low mileage bike.. say 3k over 3 years, fluids were sitting around without running.. it's not exactly great for the bike either.. you want a bike where the owner rode it and not just have it sitting.

in my humble opinion, i don't even think the bike ridden moderately on the street is broken in fully at 5000 miles. I didn't think my RR was fully broken in until I saw about 5800miles. From that point on, I really felt the bike running smoother with more power.

What else is on the bike? Front and rear gearing? PCIII? how do the tires look? How old are they?

A completly stock bike gets ~42MPG, but that really has everything to do with the way you ride. I've seen on here 20-30MPG for some of those who have taller gears, and others who have said they've gotten over 50!

i have 12000 on my 05, put about 4000 on it the first month and a half i had it. i have had it since april of 05 so about a year and a half. would have more if i wasn't so tired in the morning (tired = me taking car). but then i regret it once i am awake and see how nice it is outside.

Don't worry about miles if it has been well taken care of. My 04 has almost 20k on it....I ride it just about every day since it is my only vehicle....and it looks just and runs just like new.....if you take care of everything it will last forever.
