if your that worried about it i would runa compression test on it, as long as it has been properly maintained you may/may not be in the arena of a rebuild

i would assume that a gixxer with 38k would have some power loss, no?

One of the riders in our Club got 68,000 miles on one wheel with his 2001. He finally blew the third cylinder over. Appaerently that year and 02 had a problem with the third not getting enough oil. But that has been fixed with later models.

If you race it you may need to rebuild it every year, but if your just riding on the street I would expect at least 60,000.
