  • Wanted Honda Fireblade (2009 Onwards)

    Hello,



    Currently on the prowl for a Fireblade, 2009 or younger.
    Looking to purchase mid/end of December.

    Preferably something with full dealership servicing or at least partial with receipted home servicing.

    Not interested in Fireblades that have crank shaft noises, oil burning problems or crash history.

    All colours considered except the orange and silver scheme.

    Not bothered by usual aftermarket parts but looking for OEM original fairings.

    Looking to spend up to $11,000 for a well maintained Fireblade.

    Many thanks

          There are 2 08's being advertised on here, under or around your budget. The same as the 09+ models. I know the odd 08 was known to blow a bit of oil or have leaky seals, but they are stil the same bike. You've actually commented in one of the threads...?

          First one has some nice goodies on it too!

          Failing that and you can up the budget, go take a look at [MENTION=30080]RRossi[/MENTION] 's - the new model and you wont find a bike in better nick, or so well taken care of!

              Thanks i'm aware they're virtually the same from 2008-2011 but i want to stay away from potential oil burning and crankshaft problems developing as best i can so i've decided to look at 2009 onwards now. I've been back and forth deciding between manufacturers for a litre bike and I almost gave away the Honda idea so many times reading about horror stories, but after the last three bikes all being Honda but i can't bring myself to jump ship. Much less reports of 2009 problems so hopefully i'll have some luck in picking up a healthy Fireblade used.

              I already stalked RRossi's threads and from what i can gather he has a '12 HRC Fireblade so if it comes up for a good price i'll certainly be knocking on his door with some extra money.

              There's a dealer used HRC blade with 3,000kms going for $13,990 currently which is super tempting. It'll be a toss up between the two models depending what's available at the time. Digital dash and upgraded suspension would be a treat. But then again 08-11 with Ohlins slapped on is tempting too. We'll see!

              Thanks again

                If I decide to sell mine for the SP it will be around the 15-16k mark with two sets of fairings and host of mods,


                the factory fairings came off after 1000KM sand have one pin head size chip on the nose, the rest are 100%

                The aftermarket Red fairings are really well made and everyone cant belive its not butter!

                and it has the Yoshi, I love it 100% and really would only sell it for another one but just more wankier cause I like to have and own wank - simple

                  Looks like that bike's gone off bikesales mate - did you pick it up? Looked a good deal

                  Don't know if this one's still available but looks good value

                      Hello, this sounds interesting but the link goes to an Ebay auction for a spare part?

                      Edit: the link on your post has gone now, not sure what happened anyway i'll have a look at your profile, thanks

                        Cheers [MENTION=22412]nads[/MENTION] i've seen this one it looks like good value. Probably represents where a used 08-11 Fireblade should sit in the market and the best value i've seen so far (depending on actual condition i haven't seen the bike in person).

                        I've seen a couple '12 Fireblades with less than 4,000kms come up on Bikesales in WA, they don't last very long. The HRC one most recently advertised was from a dealership in Joondalup with 3,400kms at $13,990.

                        [MENTION=30080]RRossi[/MENTION] sounds like a tidy bike but a few more dollars than i'd like to throw at a Fireblade
                        Where did you pick up the aftermarket fairings they sound great?

                          I'm on the same search as you mate. Hoping some more '12 bargains come along soon! But very tempted by the '13 tri-colour...

                            [MENTION=22412]nads[/MENTION] from what i've seen in the past four weeks you'll be able to get an almost new '12 for less than $14,000.
                            Worst case scenario you can muck around with transporting one from eastern states for roughly $1000 and still spend the same.

                            Good luck with it!

                              BUMP

                              It's pretty much time to pick something up in the next few weeks.

                              Also looking at R1 and GSXR 1000's 2009 onwards.


                              Many thanks!
