does anyone have any complaints about the 2000 929's. I was looking at getting one, but the funds aren't there. i know that there are other members that would like to know if there have been any problems.

i got to drive one for like 10 minutes in the city one day, and mhammill, if you have never drivin one they are a lot more peppy than the F4's. the seat if fairly comfortable (in short time spans) and from what i've heard the beg to be drivin fast.

is there anyother complaints or praises???

That web page does have some good info on it. The only complaints I've heard from owners that I've talked to, has been the passenger seats hurt their Better Halves rearends.

They say that the rider's seating position is fairly comfortable.

No complaints as of yet, but then again, im still in my break-in period.

Great bike though. Having lots of fun. This thing will be a monster after break-in.

Enjoy.

JC, haven't seen you around for a while. When did you get the 929? Where'd you get it? And since you are in my neck of the woods, would you mind telling me what kind of insurance you have? Don't know if you saw my posts about it, but I bought a 929 after being given a misquote for insurance. After not being able to find full coverage for under $1900/yr, I sold it.

Hey Pete...Yeah i'm here, just lurking usually. I finally picked it up from Stubbs SW. Actually still breaking it in...about to do the first oil change.

You're gonna hate this, but I found full coverage for just under $700/year!
Allstate. It is far cry from the 2000-4000/year quotes.

We should ride sometime.

$700/yr?!? WOW, congrats to you! I called several different Allstate agents, and all I got was $2,000.00/yr. Do they know it's a CBR? Before my Allstate agent found out it was a CBR, my rate was about $700 (based on yr. and engine displacement). Then they called and asked for the model, WHAM, rates went through the roof. Come on man, tell me your secret!!!

What recall ?


Hey Pete you and Jc live in diff places, I know houston is huge and insurance is usually double in big cities.

What I used to do is change my address to that of my uncle, He lives in the boonies, insurance dropped for me 50-80% .......
