Ok, after a humbling experience in MSF, I'm looking at a 93 Seca II ($1750)

Any comments?

I also have a SECAII. It's a 1992 and i bought it after taking the MSF course. It only has 11,000 miles on it. Ive had it for 4 years and the only problem was a leaking gasket where you change to the reserve fuel supply. Ill be selling mine soon. im going to buy the new FZ6..its the SECAii's younger sister.

I have a 92 as my first bike, I really like it. It has handlebars which keep you upright instead of clipons. The seat is pretty comfy and large. Has a little power, around 50hp. Soooo easy to get to anything on the engine, no radiator and no plastic to hinder you. Well I guess you'd have to take the tank off to get to the carbs, but everything else is a breeze.
Now some things I don't like.... What were they thinking when they made that windshield? It directs the air right on my neck. Stopping power is a little weak, it's not real bad but I find myself using both brakes alot. Suspension is soft, riding 2up will drop the seat a good bit. Gearing is too low for me, I'm thinking of going +1 on the front sprocket. The front fairing is a joke, a PITA to take off and especially back on. Mine vibrated like a mother at 5k rpm, so i just took it off. It can get a little squirrely around turns and at interstate speed, I've only been riding a month so this could be my inexperience or it could be the 130 rear tire. I'm thinking of going to a 140 next time to see if it helps.

i have 2 "sucka II's" .

a 97, and a 92. (but so far i have had a total of three) my first one, a red 92, i had totalled just OVER 127,000 miles on it. at the time i was 18 and the "SUCKA" was my only form of transport.i ragged on it EVERY DAY. the only thing i did to it was change oil. tires, and sprockets. never/ NOT ONCE did i take it to the shop for valve adjustments... it finally died by spitting out blue/green flame out the exhaust, going bout 70 mph or so on I-45. that was it. if i took care of it, like im trying to do to my other 2 im sure it woulda hit 200,000 but hey its also a dispossable bike. can pick up good ones for 15 hundred or so.

excellent first bike, or one to get familiar with if you havent been biking for a while. since it was still sold in brittain till 2003, you can get a DUAL DISK brake set up for it ( that came out oversees in 98, when it was discontinued here... and oil cooler versions as well) LOTS of shit sold for it out oversees.

anyways, im interested in a third...or JUST a motor. if one of you got one to sell let me know.

im turning one of them into a streetfighter for no reason. (the green 92) why not?! i work too hard to take it seriously ..anyways got it called "project: SUPAH-SUCKA! duece "

nothing special on it yet..just a lot of stuff on order from oversees, anyways if your interested in seeing pics before it goes to cutting.. go here..

just saw the tire size post...


you can go wider. now im not sayin this is something you should do. all i am sayin is it CAN be done. you can go up to a 160 rear. i havent had any problems with it. and it gets close to the chain, but nothing in the way of rubbing it.
