I think the pictures suck!
Maybe there is a reason for that?

Re: 1997 gsxr 750

yea the pictures are bad. I don't like getting a bike with that much mileage and unknowns about po care for bike. but my other choice is 2001 zx7r at time.

So how much does he want for it? I just bought one, same year and model, in my part of the world. So far so good.

Re: 1997 gsxr 750

OP if you think 34k miles is high don't look at my bikes!

'88 kat 1100 124k miles
'92 kat 1100 60-80k miles? Your guess is as good as mine.(speedo was changed out)
'98 srad 750 7x,xxx miles before it got parted

I like it! Mines just a 600, but it's got 36k on it. Just replaced fork seals and about to do rotors, but it runs like a top!

The tuna is the biggest bike nightmare! However once you rub them the right way and get them humming they are a work horse for many a year.(Well the 1127's)
