For Sale: Blue 2004 600RR $5000 FIRM!

SPECIAL PRICE: $5000. You snooze you lose!


The bike is clean. It's been down, and it's been fixed. It's pretty much beautiful. Paint is shiny and all that goodness.

However, there is a caveat:

The steering head is tweaked. I'm not going to lie to you, it's pretty bad. Probably unsafe, although I have ridden it like this and haven't died. The entire steering stem shifts up and down inside of the frame about a milimeter or two under braking and the steering itself is loose. ***UPDATE***: I've been told that this damage can/may be fixed by welding a new bearing cup into the frame. There's a specialist shop, Dr. John's in Anaheim, that does this sort of work, and although he hasn't seen the bike, he says that damage like this normally can be fixed.

That's it. That's the only thing bad about the bike that I'm aware of. Oh, and it needs a 55 watt, 10 ohm resistor to slow down the blinking in the indicators. ***UPDATE*** there's a surface scuff in the clear coat of the tank from when the dealer looked at the bike. It's about 1" square on the left hand side in the knee well of the tank.

It's got Mad Doctor Led blinkers up in front, Trippage's LED pegs in back, and a fender eliminator.

The lowers are flat black, so is the swingarm, both left and right side covers, left and right rearsets, and left and right passenger pegs (with LEDs). Powder coated.

Laser extreme dual outlet slip-on in the back. There's a scrape on the tip of the pipe.

Dark tint windscreen in the front.

***OEM Seat Cowl. ***

BRAND NEW chain with 10 miles on it. BRAND NEW steering bearings with 10 miles in it. (Had to get it home from the shop.)

So, in sum: Clean titled '04 600RR with low miles (I'll double check, but I think it's around 5000 miles) with a tweaked steering head. The replacement parts you'll need to fix this is cheap on ebay. I've seen titled frames go for $300 on ebay--and even a brand new one is only $850 from Ron Ayers. ***YOU MAY NOT NEED A NEW FRAME. JUST BRING IT TO A SHOP TO CHECK*** There are several frames being parted out on the wera boards. Otherwise, the bike tracks straight, and is mechanically perfect. I'd fix it myself, but I don't have the time--I use the bike to commute to school, and thus don't really want to have any down time.

I've bought and sold a fair number of bikes in my time so if you are looking for a smooth transaction, I'm your man.

Bump: changed the ad and added pictures. The pictures were taken this morning, and so it's an accurate representation of what you are getting.

No time to fix it myself: That, and I don't have a garage, and I still need something to get to school on. I have a car, but traffic in LA is so bad that I really can't seem to get anything done without a bike.

Alright kids,

NEW PRICE:

$4500 FIRM. IF you buy this from me before the end of this week. I'm leaving to Philadelphia for a few days, and I want this off my mind.

You can easily get this fixed for $2500 dollars and still get a great deal on a bike. Hell, you can fix it yourself for $500 bucks, and be rocking a CLEAN TITLED bike for $5000.

oh, only gonna be in philly for a few days. visiting a friend. But I don't like to worry about things when I'm traveling. Peace of mind is worth alot to me.

I'm getting a new bike. I have to. Like, I mean....this weekend or the next few days. If I can get rid of this one BEFORE I get a new one, that'd be great....but aint nothing gonna stop me now--sometimes you gotta just put on the big boy pants and cowboy the f*** up.

doesn't anyone here want a trackbike? You can easily sell off the street parts and plastics and get her on the track for uber cheap.

i'm looking for an '05 RR to hold me over till '07. If Honda comes out with some hot sh8t next year, I'll spring for a new Honda. If not, I'm gonna go with a left over '06 Gixxer.

if by "about the same money" you mean $7500, then sure...I don't see why not.

Actually, the 749 is my dream bike. But unfortunately, I need a dependable daily driver. Maybe in a few years when I buy my own house and have a garage to tinker in.

Though, for $7500, I may be persuaded otherwise. Lemme know quick, cuz I'm minutes away from closing a deal on an '05 tribal.

Yeup, ya did. The parts were for this problem. When we were swapping the new parts out, it is when we discovered that the frame is probably ovalized.

you could prolly get it welded and machined, or just over-sized for the next step up in bearings. but if you really want the 05, then go for it. good luck either way bro.

Bump: I called around, and this looks like it won't even be that hard to fix. Mototeknica in LA quoted me $350 for a frame swap, and Dr. Johns in Anaheim said that they may be able to weld a new bearing cup in there with the frame still in the bike.

Still for sale if someone has the time to do this.

Bump.

Dr. Johns, a frame specialist in Anaheim, says that normally this type of damage can e repaired by welding in a new bearing cup or something or other. Looks on the up and up. Still for sale though, seeing as how I've got the ball rolling on a new bike already.
