General Comments:

This bike does everything a top end sport bike

should do.

Take your time to get to know it, and it will

chase down the liter bikes.

It has amazing comfort for a pure sport machine.

This is the only bike you will ever need.

It wants to dive into corners, so let just get used to it and make sure you buy good tires - DO NOT CHEAP OUT!!

JUST ENJOY THE RIDE.

* I have owned over a dozen different sport/cruiser bikes, and this 2008 GSXR 750 is truly a joy to ride fast or in the city.

Summary:

A great all around motorcycle

Faults:

It pulled the chain buffer (rubber chain guide) right off the swing arm and into the front sprocket. This did about $300 in minor damage.

2 of the 6 headlight mounting tabs broke, you could probably chalk this up to abusive wheelies more than anything else.

General Comments:

This is a terrific handling bike, if I ever buy a track bike, it will be another GSX-R 750. 1997 was the last year 750 without a stock steering damper, and this made the bike a little prone to head shakes. But this also made the bike steer very light at speed, which I prefered.

The power was not what I expected. I was hoping for a little more low down grunt than I had with my previous 600, and what I got was the same limp feeling low down in the rev range as a 600, but with much more up top. Basically it rides like a really powerful 600.

1997 was also last year with carbs, these were a little finicky, especially in the cold. Once warmed up they worked well.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree with all of the last comment! I have owned mine for 2 years and use it for commuting and for pleasure riding, and I have very little problem with it. And it keeps up very well with the new 1000's around here. I have had mine 190+ with no damper; that will scare the hell out of you!!!
