100k R1

Is that miles or kilometres? Did the owner ever turn it off? To get that many miles out of it he had to take good care of it unless he's rebuilt the motor. So that' s a positive. Hopefully it's also cheaper than most. Highway (motorway) miles are always easier in the motor. But I wouldn't buy it unless it's a lot cheaper than one with 20 or 30k.

R1

At that price and with the history you state ("full Yamaha servicing history, never abused etc", if that is correct) then you cant go wrong really! fantastic motors! have had 2 in the past never a single problem, and they were thrashed quite often!

100K R1.

headkent, Look in the service history to see when the camchain was replaced? Which i might add that the 2 cam sprockets and crank sprocket should have been done at the same time.Look also when it had a clutchpack. This should also incluce the dippled steel plates and not just the friction plates. My 106,000 mile RRV Fireblade had the camchain/cam sprockets and crank sprocket replaced at 67,000miles. The clutch pack at 56,000miles and i cannot imagine this R1 not having these done once if not twice!. Also consider the wheel bearings inc the sprocket carrier bearing. This brings me to the steering head bearing. Mine on my Fireblade were changed at 82,000miles, at the same time i had the forks rebuilt with new bushes and seals for no other reason than i thought it best!. I also replaced the rear shock at the same miles for a new unit supplied from DaveSilver Spares. 100k miles on any bike is a big milestone so obviously check the service history is linked to that bike and the mot mileage is correct on the vosa website. Last but not least! check the gearbox on a lengthy ride and put it through hard acceleration tests in all gears to check they all stay meshed under load. Your latest post states £1500. Thats a good price if it all works out fine, and money back if you sold the parts off if it developes an expensive fault later on. Good luck.

Buy it. Enjoy it. Take great pleasure in telling everyone how many miles it's done, especially at bike meets, where you often see 10 year old bikes that haven't even covered 10,000....

I'd even be tempted to get some stickers made up for it, showing how many miles it's done.
