The silly buying season is here. Found this 2006 with 19k miles. Seller willing to do 4500. He has a set of new fairings still in plastic too.

I know it's not a steal. Just wanted to know if it's worth considering. And any major issues for this model year? Steering head mechanism?

I'm a Yamaha noob. I know anything and everything about CBRs.

Pictures? More info?

The only isues with the 2006, were an optimistic tach, and some had lower rod bearing failures due to loose bearing clearances. This usually manifested itself around 5000 miles.

This is gonna be pretty obvious question, but are the lower rid bearings a costly repair? I'm guessing yes.

And how can you diagnose if the bike's rod bearings is on the verge of buying the farm?
