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?

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.
