Any problems with ZX7-R?

I am going to look at a 97 ZX7-R tomorrow and was wondering if there were any particular engine issues with them or if there was anything specific besides the general stuff like fork seals and chain that I should look for. I'm not real familiar with the Kawasaki engines that's why I was asking. Bike has 17k miles on it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm fairly new to Kawasaki's myself but everything I've heard is that these things are pretty rock solid. At least pay attention to the oil and brake/clutch fluids. Are they clean/dirty or smell burnt? Good luck!
