Hello everyone. Glad to be on the site. Looking forward to the expertise and advice to be found here.
I am looking at a 2004 Repsol 1000rr this week. The owner is an Aircraft Engineer who also does some work for our local bike shop. He has changed all fluids, air filters, chain, sprockets, adjusted valves, rear fender delete, Flush-mount turn signals, new tires. He has completely gone over the bike and it is ready to go. The bike has 3.600km's, and he says it is a genuine Repsol.
I have been searching for 2004's, and cannot find any, except for some in Australia. The Repsol site only goes down to 2005's. Are '04's particularly difficult to find?
Is there a specific VIN section that indicates a Repsol? I realize that the CBR1000rr and the Repsol edition only differ in bodywork. Just want to be sure of what I am buying.
I hope to buy the bike, so I will be an active member.
