I've got a chance to get a 99 cbr 900rr for $4,000. It has chrome frame, swingarm, wheels, etc. It's in pretty good shape, But it has 28,000 miles on it and the guy that owns it is the 2nd owner and he's no stunter by any means and is very picky about what he has and the way it's maintained. So it hasn't been dogged on, Just ridden. I was wondering if that sounds like a good deal or is that to many miles for it. Thanks for your help :)

Well, that IS a lot of miles for a bike.

I have heard of the 900 motors running for about 3 times that milage though, so
I guess its not that big of a deal.

It runs good and strong, And is leak free. We pulled off the lower fairings just to look at it and everything was dry. The clutches are starting to slip alittle but, I'm not worried about that. Thats fixable! Thanks guys thats what I was wanting to know, Whether or not they had a good reputation for lasting.

Dont worry about the mileage if it has been maintained. I have seen lots of sportbikes with 50,000+ miles. Mine has 20,000 and still runs very strong.

Personally, used helmets are junk to me. You never know how the thing was treated plus some other dude has been sweating in it.
