I'm looking more toward the 600 w/ fuel injection, so yes, new is better. I think a 750 would end up being more than I would want and since I've only been doing this for less than five years... It just wouldn't be smart unless I felt comfy ya know? I just don't want to feel the need for a different bike for a long while. Nothing is set in stone with me switching over to the dark side, but I'm certainly exploring the options. I can't do anything without making sure it's the right choice and that I've learned what I can about 'em. That takes a while, so prolly over next winter is when I'll be making up my mind. The other thing is I'm not so sure I wanna drop my savings until I'm done with school. Never know what's gonna happen with work until then either. :eek Right now, I'm getting my feet wet and searching for anyt info I can read. I know it's a little anal, but, well, it's me... I hate to admit that this bike has always caught my eye, tho'... thanks for all the info so far everybody! I really appreciate it!karl_1052 said:you should be able to find a 98-00(no changes in those years, the 97 is slightly different, nothing really noticeable) for between $3500-4500 I would imagine.
the 750 is a monster of a bike and is geared towards expiereinced riders, so if you get one, be carefull on it. 96-97(Carbed) 98-99(FI) are all good bikes.
BTW, welcome to team suzuki:clap
see that's the kind of info, I'm looking for to start with! Thank you!!!karl_1052 said:the brakes will be more than fine for the average rider.
the styling change was quite the change. the bike lost alot of weight(approx 30lbs for the 600), and got a stronger motor.
The newer ones are obviously better, but the older ones are just fine too.
1997 was the first year for the 600, in 98 they changed the fairing slightly, changed carburation settings, changed the motor slightly for more midrange. Other than that the 97-00s are identical.
has it been wrecked? I bought my kawi after the guy wrecked it and I'll never do that again. It's been a nightmare, but I've learned all about fixing it. :shake When were you looking at maybe parting with it? and btw... you're the devil :laughinggreco gixxer said:I have a 99' 600 that I might be willing to part with..
I have a full set of practically brand new sharkskinz ( with gas tank) all in mint condition.
a FULL Ti Akrapovic exhaust, jet kit, k&n airfilter, kevlar brake lines and EBC HH pads and ummmm.. dunlop 208's
