My new Bike

SO I have just purchased my first bike. It's a 01' CBR929RR in amazing condition. Has 5020 miles (o.g.5000 when I bought it) purchased for $3300. Did a get a deal? I think so.

Re: My new Bike

Sounds good! Welcome to the forum.
Has it been sitting or been in storage?
Do you have any experience working on bikes?

I only ask because the mileage is so low, if it's been in storage, you may have a few wrinkles to iron out...

Re: My new Bike

It has been garaged and ridden very little. It does have a fresh oil change and new battery. Was planning to clean the chain and the air box as well.Anything else I should be thinking of checking?

Re: My new Bike

Change out ALL the fluids. Brakes, fork oil, coolant.
Check condition of brake pads.
Get a friend to help you set riders sag on your suspension.
Download or buy a service manual. This is pretty important, it will go through all the things you need to check out and instructions for all maintenance. The stuff that needs doing on a new-to-you bike. In the Honda manual, it's section 3.

I'm guessing that your fuel pressure regulator may need replacing pretty soon. They don't like being stored. So be ready for that.
Buy a tube of dielectric grease and get in the habit of putting a dab on anytime you unplug and re-plug an electrical connector.

Good luck. There's plenty more things to go over, hopefully others will chime in.

Did you say first bike? Any previous riding experience on street or dirt?

That's a very clean looking 929, good score!

Re: My new Bike

Looks pretty nice! Congrats and be careful, even the old liter bikes are beasts, esp as a first street bike!

I drive and ride with respect always.
15hp to 200hp all them can kill you when you think its not a big deal.

Re: My new Bike

id say its a hell of a find. you know your probably dealing with a bone stock bike when it still has that big bulky whale penis on the back ( stock tag fender) they're almost always the first to get ripped off and replaced when someone buys a bike and starts looking to "mod" it.... you can usually bet that a bike with them is unmolested ... USUALLY

Re: My new Bike

I would say you got a helluva deal on her =) Very pretty Blade! It is rare to find a bike that is still all standard- either leave it that way and just enjoy, or you end up with a completely fresh canvas... either way you can't go wrong. I would suggest a fender eliminator and at least a bolt-on pipe. The fender eliminator makes them look better and the pipe will help you be heard better (not that people pay that much attention even if you're loud....)

Anyway, to the .org and good luck with your new baby! Don't forget to find her a great name!

Re: My new Bike

and Congrats. Was your bike on Craig's List, I think I saw it there.

Re: My new Bike

Congrats Trente! Nice ride I picked up an 02 954 this weekend (just getting it certified today) and can't wait to get it out on the road!

I had an 02 and had to part with it in 05 (lost it in the divorce!) but loved it sooo much I had to get another

Have you had it out yet?
