  5. Should I even bother servicing this '01 F4i which has no proof of maintenance?

    General Discussion
    I plan to purchase a 250-300cc starter bike this autumn. Most likely, after 1-2 years of riding it I'll want to move up to a bigger bike. My older brother's 2001 CBR600F4i has been sitting in the garage for 3 years. It may be the bigger bike I'll want to ride in the future. How much money should...

    Electronics
    HELP! 2008 CBR1000RR... Bike runs fine under pretty much any condition. Even popping a small wheelie. But as soon as I grab a bunch of throttle and accelerate past 8K RPM or so, it's as if someone just flicked the kill switch (I know this because I had a buddy of mine reach over and do that...
