  2. eyyy good job a cbr! I always wanted this one as my upgrade. I reckon this version with the 2 part seat looks way better than the later banana seat models. Nice!

  4. Looks like the bars are higher than on a CBR600RR.
    Should be more comfortable for commuting

  5. yeah they were marketed as tourers I believe so they didn't get the RR designation of the 900s of same time. I reckon they are the shmickest looking jap bike from that era. Really the first of the jap manufacturers to move toward 21st century design.

  10. That picture is a bit deceiving. The bars are quite low. I know the F4i does have bars a little higher than the RR, but they are still very low for me. It will take some getting used to.

  13. minglis, you'll soon get used to the lower bars although you'll need to grip the tank with your knees a bit more to prevent fatigue in the arms though.

  14. Yeah, that's why I want the stomp grip. I need to ride to Albury next week. That'll test me :)

  18. Congrats! Great choice, wish you many happy miles and smiles with it. :)

    Just as an aside, if you're thinking about stomp grip for commute, would also suggest checking out techspec (grippy, but not as aggressive) . Unless perhaps commuting in leathers, stompgrip can be a bit rough on the legs.

    Enjoy! (y)

  19. Very nice, same as mine except mines white and red. I've owned a ZX6R and GSXR600 and the F4i is by far the most fun to ride and comfy. I did Syd to Melb in a day and wasn't even that sore when I got home.
