I'm looking at an 97 GSXR 600 with 24,000miles and I'm just wanting to know what these bikes are like for reliability and repairs.
I took it for a test drive and it seemed fine but I"m looking for any advice on buying 1 of these Gixxers.
Thanx

Be careful

My wife is on second 97 600, The first one had 26000 miles on it and 2 months after we took it home the timing chain broke, bent a valve and trashed the cylinder. It was like close to $3000.00 to fix. Also there is a recall for all 97-99 GSXR 600's for the fuel pump gasket. Sorry this is such a late warning.
