Hey all

Im looking into a 2003 CBR600RR. Im just curious as to the mileage expectancies you get out of a sport bike. The one Im interested in has 20,000kms (about 12,000 miles). Assuming its been maintained alright, how many miles would you expect to get out of one of these bikes before major components are in danger of requiring replacement (Ie, engine, gearbox)? I realize you cant set a mileage limit in stone, just wondering what some of your experiences have been.

Also, are there any snags/common problems on this model year that I should look into?

Thanks in advance

A sportbike can last well past 100k miles depending, as you note, on how it was treated/ridden/maintained.

I know of (and have ridden) an 04 600RR that has racked up a very torturous 40K+ miles and still runs like it is new. These bikes are one step down from bulletproof. Not to say they won't break down before then, but if the bike has been maintained, I'd say it's fine.

Im new to this forum stuff but was told that I probably could get some decent help on do little things to this 1991 750 Katana I just bought. Currently, I am trying to install the clutch cable and would like some help

When you have a question you need an answer to, try using the Search first. Picking the unique words to the situation will greatly increase your chances of success. For instance, we often get a lot of, "Which first bike should I buy if I haven't ridden before?" Narrowing that to "first bike" for the Search yields LOTS of results.

If you don't find what you're looking for, then start at the listing of forums, reading their purposes, and click on one. Then click on the New Thread link on the page, put in a Title, and type the question in the big white box in the middle of the page.

And to generally answer your question, use Google.com or Ebay.com to find a service manual for your bike. You'll absolutely need that if you're going to undertake any maintenance work yourself.
