    Is there any big changes between the HONDA F3 and F4 other than looks

    Hi I was going to get a F4 but have been looking at some sweet looking F3's 97 area with the black, white red painjob and black and white rim combo. It looks awsome.

    So I wanted to know if anyone know what the main differences are. Also is there a site where you can compare specs between the different years?

    A neat place for specs is: www.mcreports.com

    Click on big "Reviews" banner at bottom, then reports

    There is a big difference between F3 and F4:

    -About 30 lbs in weight as the F4 is an aluminium frame while the F3's is steel
    -F4 has better swingarm
    -F4 has about 5 more horsepower
    -bigger airbox and carbs
    -ignition mapping improved

    Both are good bikes though. I had the F4 and my wife had an F3 and both bikes were very easy to handle with plenty of power.

    F4 is a nicer looking bike.........gixxers are still better though!

    Ps. there will be sharper depreciation on the newer bike if you plan on selling in the next few years. I've owned neither bikes but the F4 is a nicer bike. That being said, I have NEVER heard a bad thing about an F3 and was even looking for one for my first bike. If you are looking to spend 7k you should be able to find an in that neighborhood.

    Thanks, im just thinking of this because there is a big price difference since if I got a F4 it would have to be a 2001 + because they have the dual headlights and the single doesnt look that good.

    But the 2001 are like 7400+ and 97's are like $5000-5500

    Too funny, I've never heard of anyone ruling out a bike becuase of its headlights...

    F4 is a 1999 or 2000, F4i is 2001+

    That should make things a little clearer for when you are asking questions.

    the "i" in F4i means injected? (fuel injected) that correct?

    F4i, cause I dont want to spend the extra money for the F4 over a F3 cause it doesnt look nearly as good as the F4i in my opinion.

    Anyways I just wanted to know changes between i guess F4i and F3
