    Fire it up and check for heavy oil burn. That gen was hit and miss for that, but mostly the 08's and 09's.

    Everything else looks fine to me. Nice bike.
    Was that gen also known for clutch pack replacements before 30,000 kms?

    Can't speak to that. I only know about the oil burn.

    Yep. I didn't say "guaranteed track bike" just that it's a potential indicator. And I know lots of people who mile up their bikes. It's just that I know lots more who don't.
    I always wonder why people in Calgary assume 25k over 11 years is "miled up". Anything over 10k seems to get noses turned up at it, but there's a ton of bikes (sport bikes included) that easily do 100k miles. It's a motor. As long as you take good care of it, and check the normal indicators, it's going to be fine. My first bike was a 01 CBR600 F4i that had 60k on it. It ran like a dream.

    I think it's one of those old "rule of thumbs" that have been lingering on since like the 40's and 50's, like never buy a used car over 100,000km or do oil changes every 3000km/3000mi/5000km. Makes no sense with all these advancements in engineering and technology, but people can't seem to let them go.

    I forgot "it's a motor"... Like any other motor, it has a compression ratio over 12-1 and redlines over 12,000 rpm. It also puts out about 170hp per liter which is substantially more HP/L than an Italian supercar.

    So yeah, I guess that's just another motor.

    My initial comment was merely that it has high mileage, meaning that if one was to look at other bikes of the same age, many of them would have lower mileage. I didn't say it was a clapped out, shit box that probably won't even start. It's very likely just fine.
    But, it's not low mileage. There is no hidden message. It's just a statement of fact.

    If you arent living life at 12,000 rpms, the engines will last a long time.

    Viffers and blackbird guys roll 150,000km with ease on their bikes. Most crotch rockets have a short life span before they end up as 'spare parts' so finding a 30,000 km sport bike appears skewed, ie. anomaly of sorts.

    Other than the very odd clutch pack replacement at 20k, I would take this bike over a lesser KM edition that was not maintained as well by some kid.

    I always chalked it up to the idea that everyone writes their bikes off before 30k KM. Therefore you never see bikes with that many miles on them, which makes people think they don't last that long.

    Personally the CBR would be last on my list. I'd get a Gixxer or another R1 way before considering the Honda. But that's just personal preference.

    Wheel stand a more likely indication it's been tracked/raced
    Thats about as true as saying a civic with racing decals is more likely a track car.

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    Bike looks nice, not that a photo says much. Mileage is nothing for that motor, we have 2 guys that ride them with us on long trips, one I believe is a 09 with 70k kms, and the other is a '10 with 55k kms. Cold start is a must, and then just listen for lash or chain tick. Im surprised the clutch pack went at 20k, sounds like either a poor rider, or wrong fluid. I owned one for a couple seasons, never once left me stranded or pissed off, and I rode the shit out of that bike. Guy I sold it to sometimes rides with us and it still hasn't cost him anything. Honda may not make the fastest liter bike, but I would put its reliability against any other, although all jap bikes are reliable from personal experience.

    I'll leave the wheel stand alone, looks like thats been mentioned. I have both front and rear for my bikes, I think its an essential tool and wouldn't look into that at all. Also the "ECM" tune, ask who/what it is, likely a PC-V or Bazaaz. Either way I would check it out, looks like a decent deal, and the color combo is sick!

    If only the words "more likely" meant the same as the word "is".

    You're absolutely right, ive adjusted my post to be more correct but at the end of the day bike stands dont have any indication to whether or not its a race bike.

    Absolutely.

    Have you ever ridden one of these things? Specific a 1L Super Sport? It sounds like you have, but I barely go over 8k, even winding it up on the highway. 9k in first gear, and I'm at 120. I have my shift light set at 8k, and I think it's been on 3 times since I bought the bike brand new. I imagine that even if you're doing stupid shit, you're not winding it out anywhere near the redline. And I bet you one of these could handle sustained redline better than most cars with substantially lower redlines.
    I don't consider 2200km over 11 years, "high mileage".

    Lmao, 24k is high mileage? I put 28k on my (new) 07 Triumph Daytona 675 the year I bought it, and I bought it in June. No 24k is nothing. Go over the bike, look for oil leaks mainly on the fork seals, but other then that it should be good to go.

    Bike stands are irrelevant. I used to use those all the time to change out my tires.

    This is, definitively, the single lowest mileage bike in the recorded history of 1L SS bikes. Nay, in the history of Honda. Nay, in the history of humans sitting on things that take them places.
    We are here to witness this unicorn. Jesus himself rose from the ashes (on an Ash Wednesday in 2010) and permanently affixed this bike's odometer at 24,000km while it was still a late bloomer in a showroom.
    The bike has never moved one inch since then, thanks in part to the wheel stands.
    Not only is it currently the lowest mileage bike in recorded history, there will also never be another bike with mileage this low in the remainder* of Earth's history.

    30,000km on the average street bike ENGINE is nothing - but tires, chains, cogs and some seals (as mentioned) are usually replaced around this time - tires particularly love to go square in our part of the country (as opposed to the coast, or Ontario).

    Pegs are getting way too high on all these bikes nowadays. But I guess they're meant to be on the track, not having fun on the street. I haven't been on one of these death traps in years now, so things might be different. I used to love Hondas when it was the 600F4i, and the 929rr, both make great wheelie bikes. But then the 600rr came out and it was boring as hell, you had to clutch the fuck out of it to get the front wheel off the ground. Plus it was a high seat height with no adjustability.

    600F4i was my first bike! Absolutely loved that thing, very comfortable, good for 250+, great handling. Always recommend that bike when people ask about a good beginner bike. Would love to pick up a clean 01-02 with the split seat again as a around town bike.

    No way I could get an F4i to 250 - I was a giant airbrake on that bike even in a tuck; the wind would rip me off the bars well before 250, lol ..... that bike was tiny for my big ass. But yes, a very good bike for beginners. Little headaches also when it came to storage and maintenance with the new FI system.
