Looked at a RR tonight...(help)

2004 CBRR 64XX miles $6000

Some things I noticed:

1) Needs rear tire.

2) Front tire? I dont know, but when I leaned to turn the handlebars were hard to keep strait. I noticed that the middle portion of the front tire was risen. Is this what made the handelbars turn as I leaned?

3) Missing front turn signals and rear signals with licence plate bracket...How much would that stuff be?

4)When blipping the throttle under load there was a squeeking noise. Is the squeeking ormal?

5)It warmed to 226* Is that temp normal?

6) The linkage from the shifter to the tranny seemed to pivot a lot. Normal?

The temp thing may not be normal. did a cooling fan kick on when it reached that temp? I think normal motor temp is around 109-120 or so. 228 seems like overheating.

Temp is defiantly a little high unless you were just holding a fairly high rpm constantly. Uneven tread can cause some ill handling. You should be able to pick up some aftermarket blinkers for around $50. Used factory stuff can be found cheap on eBay and probably from $30 to $50 a peace new at the dealer.

What model CBR is this? 954? And how much turn in did you get? Serious amounts? Could be just in the need of tighting the triple top nut or steering head.

Temp... what do you mean warm temp? That's the highest it got? Normal running temp on most bikes is from 160-200. Most fans kick on at about 215 +/- and over heat is around 230.

Shift linkage... could just need to be tightened.

Blinkers... simple fix... and really easy... just go to aftermarket.

Rear tire... just buy a new set of Pilot Powers front & rear.

Throttle squeek.... not much for info on that one!

my 03 600 RR (with an 05 engine) will heat up in traffic (not moving at all) to about 230-235...if I turn it on in the driveway and let it sit it will get around there too, my fan kicks on around 218...but once I am moving, it will drop into the 170-190 range, many bikes run cooler than mine, but my friends with hondas run about the same temps I do down here...depending on what you were doing with the bike makes a big difference, what were you doing??

ebay for the missing parts...

cant help ya on the squeeking...maybe plastics or something rubbing together depending on how you are sitting?

i'd replace both tires, but bargain on the price since you will have to do so much to it...

This was a 600. I was sitting at idle for a while when it got up to 226 and the fans were on. I would say the bars would turn halfway in on a very small turn (casual 10 mph into subdivision).

Needs tires, turnsignals, and license plate bracket; squeeks, and has mashed gear shifter. Hmmm. Sounds like a bike that was used on the track a lot. Last weekend, my local paper listed a 2003 Superhawk for $6K, a 2005 FZ6 for $6149, and a 2005 FZ-1 for $7099, all new. I would buy any of these three over that questionable RR. So shop around.
