Default 2004 Honda CBR 600 F4i

Hi folks!

I just discovered this forum, and I'd like to ask you all your comments about this bike that I'm about to purchase

It's a 2004 Honda CBR 600 F4i, with a little over 20.000 kms. It looks and feels great.

Let me know your thoughts!

Well it certainly looks like a 2004 F4i.......
You might need a bit for information to get what your looking for.

Any service/maintenance/repair records, title, etc?
The left fairing looks replaced or repainted as well as the stator cover, so it may have been laid down. May want to look into that.

It doesnt look modded. Flush mounts and fender elem/trim is usually one of the first things owners do. All looks stock to me.

Im not sure if that fairing looks repainted or its the picture. I would look for rash in areas people dont hide very well, (shifter/pegs, or blinkers)

Looks like its got a DB wind screen, possibly stock exhaust. But ya, check if the tread on the tires and whats left of the brakes; if those need replacing that might be a $300-600 cost closely following the purchase of the bike. Just info from my purchasing experience

It *looks* like a good bike.

If the side fairings are replacements, ask the owner to take them off for inspection b/f purchase. Also, as said above, maintenance records would be a real plus in knowing the bike's true history & condition. Things aren't always as they appear, so do your due diligence & verify everything.

BTW, welcome to the forum.

Thank you guys!!

This has been very helpful.

Something I didn't mention before is that this is going to be my first bike ever, so I want to make sure I make the right choice.

I did notice too, after posting here, that the fairing doesn't look as the original for that model of bike. I will look into that with the owner next week when I take the bike for a ride test.

I will also try to get some records for possible repairs/maintenance, etc.

Thanks a lot and I`ll keep you posted!

If you find a good 04 F4i, you will love it and it will last you a long time. As long as you respect the power of the twist on the throttle, this is a great first bike.

MSF RiderCourse is always recommended however. Good luck and ride well.

And do a split-seat conversion ASAP. ;0)
