Buying CBF1000
« on: 24 May, 2020, 06:51:24 AM »
Hi All,
I am from Melbourne Australia. Getting back in to riding after 15 years and decided on a CBF1000 MK1. what should be the fair price to pay for a bike done under 40k kms?
Any advice appreciated.

Here in the UK the dealers are asking around £3,000 for 25,000 miler SC58's with ABS (2006 to 2009 MKI's). That's about 6,000 dollars Aus' and 40,000 kilometres. What they are selling them for right now I don't know but I'd expect to be able to haggle a 10% lockdown knockdown on the asking price, or is that just a very British thing?

ABS light stays on until you start moving forward, around 6mph I think, until it checks out system is ok, then goes out.

As above the red ABS light comes on with the ignition and goes off once you reach 6 mph that's about 10 of your kph, or if there is a current ABS fault the ABS light starts flashing in which case you'll want the seller to get that sorted out pre-sale.

Of interest too will be the PGM-FI light that comes on with the ignition and goes off after a couple of seconds and stays off or it flashes indicating a current Ignition System or Fuel System fault. Test ride and make sure that both lights come on and go off as they should and don't forget to kick the tyres ;-)

Happy Days
