Re: Buying a 2008 CBR 1000RR
It's a good machine for sure. I bought one the same year about 4 years ago for $7500 with 3,000 miles just like that one except it was red and black. I put another 13,000 miles on it before I sold it. Mine did burn quite a bit of oil in the end( 1/4 to 1/2 quart per 1,000 miles). Not tragic as long as you check it regularly. It still ran excellent for 16,000 miles and no other issues than the oil burning. I have a 2013 Ninja 636 now and it is a better bike all the way around i.e. forks, handling and does not burn oil at all. That 2008 Cbr 1000 is almost 10 years old now. For $7,000, I think I might look for a better deal on something more proven to not be a lemon. The forks suck on the 2008 Imo. They have a bit of factory slop in them( bushing tolerance issue). I changed my bushings that were not worn to see if it would tighten them up and it did nothing to improve them. Your choice in the buy.
