Questions CBF1000FA
on: 31 July, 2022, 10:03:33 PM
Hello, writing this message from Portugal!, in a few days will be seeing and hopefully buying a used 2013 Honda CBF1000FA, and tought stop by just to ask a 2nd opinion.
The Bike in question has 63,000kms done, I dont know the history of the bike, is it safe to say that depending on treatment and abuse that the owner as done 63,000kms (39 146 miles), can I assume that thoose amount of (KMS/Miles) is it a considerable amount for engine or other components or could it be good as new?
The onwer sent me a video of the condition of the bike and a video of the engine running and revving couldn't spot nothing of the ordinary but in a video its a bit hard.

Also what kinda tyres you recomend for commuting on sundays, and touring, and HOT tarmac

I would never consider buying any motor vehicle without having seen it first hand in the flesh, especially if it's from a private seller. If the engine oil and filter have been changed every 12,000 Km's or annually/bi-annually the engine should be good but there's more to it than that. At 63,00Km's is over and above two major 24,000Km service intervals, were either of these carried out in accordance to the Honda service schedule?

Documented service history is what you should be interested in ask at what date and mileage were the likes of valve clearances, spark plugs, brake fluid, clutch fluid, coolant, fork oil, air filter, engine oil and filter last tended to? Also check for corrosion, especially behind the front wheel including the radiator and forward of the rear wheel including the swinging arm and centre stand.

Tyres - I've been happy with the Bridgestone BT-023's, excellent all year rain and shine performance including the recent +40C heat wave we've had here in the UK

My mechanic will come with me on that though he did a regular service at 62,000kms oil, oil filter, brake fluid, nothing major only regular stuff, just wanted to ask if 63k kms on this bike was alot or not at all, but its like I tought and your reply depends on the person who treated her and the maintenance.
Thanks!
