Hi all new to the fourm and had a few questions. I just bought a 96 750(paid $3000,it has 20k mi,but spotless) and was wondering a few things.Not to worry this is not my first bike.

About how many miles on a full tank of gas?

Normal operating temp(cruising speed)?

Any flaws or factory recalls I should know about(the guy I bought it from said there wern't any)?

And how many miles have you seen these bikes have on them?

Thanks in advance

Great bike! Was Super Bike of the Year two years in a row, '96-'97.

Maybe about 150 or so miles on a tank...

Temps should be around 180 degrees, shoots up to 220 or so in heavy traffic and high heat. Fan comes on around 225.

Some of the early bikes had a recall for head gaskets, yours should be fine now with 20k on the clock.
With proper care you should get plenty more miles.

Thanks for the info and the welcome, greatly appreciated. I read a lot before I decided on a new bike that fit my budget, and this bike sounded like the best bike for my money.

Factory recall in 98 for leaking gas out of bottom of tank at the pickup/pump area. This is very dangerous. Make sure you check it.

That's true. I actually had that happen on my '97. Prop the tank up and check for any leaks by the fuel pump.
