Tomorrow morning im going to probally buy a 2003 R6 if its in the descriped condition--No cracks/rashes on the plastics, NEVER over or dropped, clean title, full micron exhaust, all the undertail & flushmount mods, HID's, white gauges, pair of gloves.....its the tannish silver color.

18,000 miles, $3500 He's even meeting me halfway. Ran a carfax on it and its clean.


It DOES need a new headlight and headlight shrowd/fairing thingy.....he smacked the nose of a deer @ 35mph and it cracked the headlight. He said it didnt damage the steering or anything, and he didnt drop the bike. About $300 of damage?




damage







So is there any problems/issues with the R6 I need to look out for? Im a noob to streetbikes--rode atvs/dirtbikes for a few years though.

Yea that fairing and headlight are exspensive as hell!! But otherwise no its a good bike, its out dated by alot but for a beginner bike itll be perfect.

I definitly will :eek5


hoping I can get the parts for around $300.

I will take the motorcycle safety course, buy insurance, pay tax, and a helmet and jacket. By then It will be around $5000 total :confused:

I got too many toys already. :rocket

I don't think its a very good deal when you can get a new one for 9500 out the door depending where you live.

I never knew you could run a carfax on a bike, in fact im pretty sure you cant, atleast the last time i had a carfax account about 1 year ago.

Well I definitly cant afford paying on a loan, plus no one will cosign for me.

The 03 is better looking that the 02's. I cant afford a newer bike so its good enough for me.

Can anyone explain the sticker on the tail????? I dont want a raced bike.

Yup you can. Want me to run yours for ya? pm me your vin number.


You can even do atv's, atleast newer ones. All the carfax really tells ya is how many owners/if theres been any insurance claims.

About the sticker, just wondering if he was in a racing club or somthing. Im calling him right now.
