Cool 2004 Honda CBR 600 F4i

Hello,
I am just about to purchase a 2004 Honda CBR 600 F4i (images attached) with 7500 miles for $5000. I believe its stock, except for a slightly larger windshield. Is that a reasonable price, and also any tips for someone thats new to sportsbikes?
Thanks,
n0chi

It's a tad on the high side for an 04 but if it's never been down it's a nice starting price. with that many miles which is low for an 04 I'd say 4,500 would be a good deal 5k is an average one.

Definitely on the high side. Unless it's the exact bike you want, try to get the seller to come down at least $700.

They can be had from 3500-4300 regularly.

You guys need to take more into consideration. You can't just look at the year and say "oh that's an old bike, you can find those cheap anywhere." What if he lives in NY or LA? Higher cost of living, higher costs for stuff.

$5,000 is not a bad price for the bike, given the mileage and condition. That's why there's haggling. Talk down as low as you can to get a price you both like. Also, you can pay as much as you want, regardless of what people here say. If the bike is worth $5k to you, then buy it. Whatever makes you happy.

www.kbb.com or www.nada.com will tell you what it's worth. It's called "book value." Personally, I'd offer the guy $500 and a kick in the *****.

Ok Guys Thats enough out of this thread about off topic subjects. If you have nothing good to say Lucky don't click the reply button and start bashing the thread creator, just give him the help you did after that or don't even bother to reply. I edited both your posts now please be nice .

If you two have a problem either take it to PM's to each other or to me, stop it all together or I'll stop it for both of you.

It looks like I'll be jumping in the CBR600 owners' pool now too. Where is the above mentioned sticky? I can't find it.

Thanks

That's what I meant when I said "Unless it's the exact bike you want, try to get the seller to come down at least $700."
