Hmmm, some stuff doesn't look right. He claims no mods but has a different upper and possibly a different tail. Either that or he just took the sticker off. Oh, aside from the obvious flushmounts and frame sliders as well. Maybe check it out in person? The price is right though

Oh, and whats up with the faded VIN. I have my bike in the sun a lot and I wash regularly and my VIN looks brand new, seems a lil fishy

Couple of things talk to the seller about before meeting up
1 the bike is not stock. Has flush mount front and rear signals,
2 frame sliders
3 mid fairings are not stock, those are supposed to be red not black
This is what the stock on would look like minus the exhaust on this one

4 something is up with the vin sticker. That does not look right.. Looks like a print out one. Doesn't the stock one have black on it around the edges???
If you do decide to meet up with them make sure you don't have any cash on you... Just play it safe. Have a look at it and go from there. I would look at the swingarm for scuffs, levers, rearsets.

Hey dude, I'm in Houston and in Dallas there is a ton of deals for under $5500. Let me get you the links.

http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/mcy/1288221925.html

http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/mcy/1284959966.html (Probably one of the best deals...1200 miles!)

http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/mcy/1281659259.html ($4500?! Seriously? If it only needs a front wheel like he says, that's a crazy deal.)

http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/mcy/1280509530.html

http://dallas.craigslist.org/mdf/mcy/1277096227.html (I think this one may be my favorite out of all of them. He's been trying to sell it for a while, so you could probably get it pretty cheap. $5250 obo is awesome.)

http://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/mcy/1270526570.html


Those are all 07/08's ranging from $4500-5900. Man, I really wish I had some cash right now.

Yea... for a bike with no modifications it certainly has quite a few. The VIN sticker looks pretty suspicious... I'd be comparing it against the frame VIN on the neck of the frame.

This is what it should look like:

Yeah, that VIN sticker looks fishy.

It looks like he may have wiped it down with solvent and it took off the surrounding stuff, leaving only the number and year month manufacture, which are printed on separately.

I'd leave that one alone, if only because he's already obviously lied about it in his ad.

The mid fairings are stock without the stickers, bc the bottom fairings are black the mids are silver, if the bottom was red the mids are black. He has deffinately removed some of the red graphics that come on the bike. You can tell by looking at the tail and the upper front fairings. The cbr racing sticker has been removed from the silver mid fairings. I have the same color so im quite familiar with how it looks.

That VIN sticker was a failed attempt at a removal. Seems fishy.




Also, subframe looks tweaked possibly. Why is the brake light pointing right in this pic?




And why are there gouges in the triple clamp?




Personally, I'd pass and wait it out for a better (safer) deal.

i would meet up with him and just start picking his brain about what all
looking fishy. see how he answer the questions. if he cant look you in the
eyes then you know not to by the bike. and its craigslist. i would bargain the
living hell out of him and get the price way down.
