New here...thought I'd introduce myself and post some pictures

Its a 1997 Honda CBR 600 F3. 13k miles and in mint condition. I picked it up a day ago from the original owner. I know its nothing too fancy but I like it and am enjoying it so far! It has a K&N filter and a yoshi exhaust.

I had a question for some of the experienced guys here. Anybody know where I can get a thermostat for this bike? Also, whats a good oil and filter to use?

Here are the pics:

Re: New here...thought I'd introduce myself and post some pictures

the bike look snice and clean. As for oil and filter, I use anything I'm not too worried about brands - I change it twice as frequently as Honda advise anyway.

eBay is always worth a look for parts like the the thermostat....

Wow, that looks brand new. Nice find. Search around, there are more than enough oil threads to check out.

It is my first bike actually. I've rode around my brother's 600 for years, but never owned one of my own! Was looking for awhile for a good one and I think i found one! Thanks for the compliments!

That's what's weirding me out...for a 1997 model, it looks brand new. Are those the original plastics?

They are the original plastics It was never laid down and pretty much pampered and always garaged. It was driven by an older guy that put maybe 300 miles on it a year for the past 10 years. Judging by the remarks from you guys, I guess this isn't your everyday bike you run into condition wise? lol

Thanks! Glad I made a good decision! Being my first bike and no input from any friends/relatives on if it was a good find or not, I was putting myself out there guessing haha!
