750 Engine rebuild?

How many Km's / miles untill a engine rebuild should be considered on a 97 750?

Re: 750 Engine rebuild?

I've heard of one guy getting 50k miles on the clock before selling his bike and another guy got 99,999 km then his speedo stopped working. So if your bike has been maintained and in good running shape then it should go for a while.

Re: 750 Engine rebuild?

im just curious, cause ther are a couple that i was looking at.
there's a 97 with 35000 kms and a 96 with 48000kms thats been jetted. other than that they are both stock. they want $5000 CAD. for each, but im not sure if it would be a good idea to get one with such high kms.

Re: 750 Engine rebuild?

I rebuilt mine the first time at 35K miles.

It really comes down to how much compression the motor has.

Re: 750 Engine rebuild?

did you do a compression test before you did it or could you feel the lag in the motor?

Re: 750 Engine rebuild?

I could tell when running with a 99 750 that had only 2K miles on it. They would pull me in the bottom and mid range, so i did a set and I was at like 118 - 121psi, min spec is like 135psi. So I rebuilt it.. It was a lot better after that.

Re: 750 Engine rebuild?

well I would check to make sure it doesnt blow smoke when it runs. And that there is not a lot of play in the head bearings or swingarm bearings. That is doesnt make a lot of noise. and that over all it looks in good shape. Chain and sprockets are ok, and tires are not trashed.
