Hey guys,

I just picked up a new winter project to keep me occupied while Michigan weather laughs in my face. The bike is a 2007 GSXR 750 that was layed down on the left side. The current owner says that he bought the bike with a salvage title, but it was repaired when he bought it. I'm trying to figure out what was done to it before he got it, and decide how I'm going to put it back together.

So far I think that the Exhaust was replaced with an 08 Pipe. I also think the forks were replaced with 600 forks. Do you guys notice anything that I missed (I'm far from an expert in GSXR's).

Also, what would you guys say the value is of an 07 as seen in the pics (The front wheel is cracked, not shown). With a salvage title. I think I got a pretty good deal, but I'm not sure...

Thanks

Well, I signed the papers today, and I'll be picking up the bike this weekend. I bought it for $1800, so no too bad a deal. Also, I got a little suprise when I looked at the title. The bike is actually a 2008 GSX-R750. It just has 2007 Fairings on it.

Is there any other big differances between an 07 and 08? (That I can check to determine what else was swapped on it?)

Thanks

I was wondering that myself... I'll be pulling the forks apart to check out the internals, are those seals just pressed into place?

As far as I can tell, it is an 08 bike, with 07 front plastics, and headlight. I'll be getting it home soon, and tearing into it to see what's been done.
