Hi guys,

I am thinking about buying this r1 from a dealership I do business with. I buy my accessories from them and they are nice guys but their bikes are generally overpriced.

For example I was originally wanting to buy an 02 954rr(slower but better fit) they were asking $6,999 with 21k on it(what a rip)

So she says she has a 2000 r1 she can sell me for $5200(from $5500). Get this, it has 24k miles on it and has damage on both sides. I have not even seen it but I know that it is not worth that much.
I see 00s going for 5000 on ebay with half the miles.

I am going to look at it tomorrow. Assuming that it is in good condition, how much should I pay for it?

remember, it is an 00 red and black r1 with 24 k miles and damage on both sides.

thanks for the replies.

Depends on the damage. But from what you've told me... I wouldn't pay a dime over $4000 for it due to the damage.

Depends on the damage but yeah for that price you can find a nearly mint one with half the miles. Good luck

Depending on how much you are willing to spend, I can sell you my pristine 02 R1. None of the high-mileage or maintenance issues. Absolutely perfect, garage kept. One bug on headlight (soon to be gone). Here are pics, let me know if you're interested.

clutch and engine

Hi guys, I have three questions. To decide if I want this bike or not

I have read that some bikes with this type of mileage have required clutch changes or engine rebuilds

1. How much does a clutch replacement cost?
2. how much is an engine rebuild
3. How much do you think the dealership GAVE for that bike (for bargaining purposes?


thanks for the replies

hi guys,

I went there to look at it. it was not as bad as it sounded but there were scratches on the pipe and small scratches on both sides.

I offered to go up to 4k but he would not take less than 5k so I passed.

another question

there is a 2000 blue r1 with micron muffler in my area with 13k miles.

What is a fair price on this one?
