    96 900RR. 7k mile cherry. With a full Erion exhaust, and jetted, too. $4000.
    Needed a new tire, Bridgestone 014 $ 158.
    1 Year insurance. Unf_ckingbelievable $ 97.
    Oil and filters. $ 30.
    Chain lube, used on the dirtbike too. $ 8. That's about it. If this isn't budget hauling a_s, I don't know what is.

    I was wondering when I bought this bike about riding with the guys from work on an old 900RR. You see, they ride newer R-1's, GSXR 1000's, 750's and 600's, a new VFR, new 600RR's, a Blackbird, etc., etc. There was no need to worry. The newer bikes have nothing on this little ole 900. The only place they go by is if there is a loooonnnng straight, and only on the very top end. I'm very happy with this bike, and its paid for.

    Uhhh...Scott, you might want to check with your Honda dealer about the price of new 954 rotors...and you'd better be sitting down when you do so.

    They're about AUD$485 each. Yup, EACH!!

    You can add another $2k on to the previous list... and counting! Maybe another $500 should see it done... hopefully!

    Let's see.
    $6000 origianlly in 2000 for a '98 with 8K on it.
    $4500 for a in Oct. this year for a '99 with 2160 mi. on it.
    On the '98:
    The usual service:
    Oil, filters, spark plugs, air filter,
    Sargent seat, mirrow extenders,
    headlight replacements, tires,
    sprockets, chain, tank bag,
    steel lines, brake pads

    On the '99 so far:
    tires, oil, chain, sprockets
    tank bra, mirrow extenders,

    have and will put on:
    front turn signal bubbles
    rear turn signal small short stalks

    today - ordering steel lines
    Soon - Sargent seat

    As to riding gear:
    that gets rediculous.
    Been riding for 30 years and
    with few exceptions every
    piece of apparel that I get must
    be able to be used riding with
    the exception of street shoes.

    Ain't got a clue on total.

    It's hard to tell because I cant calculate the money which I spent on my bike and gear but I will try to give an answer.
    I bought KTM 250SX-F in 2019 at $92,000 approximately. Also bought a helmet and goggles with my bike
    Helmet - HJC CL-X7 - $140 or $145
    Goggles - $30
    And after 3-4 months I bought a jacket and boots
    Jacket - FXR Racing F20 at $136 boots at $600, I think its Alpinestars Tech 10 Supervented boots
    And recently I bought again new helmet and boots with gloves
    These boots and helmets are my favourites
    Helmet - Fox Racing V4 Race MIPS at $589.95
    Boots - Alpinestars A19 Tech 10 at $599.95
    Gloves - Klim Inversion Pro at $89.99
    OMG its $11,390 something . I calculate it for the first time, it's really a big amount. I cant believe that I spent this much money on gear.
