    i'm po' buyin 93 gsx-r 750

    ok so i priced out a gixxer 750, and after being approved, i decided i just can't afford a new bike. So i am getting a gsx-r 750 still....except its 10 years old. Anyone familiar with the bike? i've ridden a few in the last couple days, they feel pretty nimble, nice power. one of them had the sprockets done and the thing was a wheelie machine. lots of power. any opinions? experiences on these bikes?

    93 gixxers are heavy...good to learn on i found though....after six months though you'll deffinatly be wanting an srad..however if you can corner and wheelie a rig like that its just gonna make you a better rider when you step up to modern technollogy. .the early gixxers are still good..lots o power...almost average brakes..its all about money though....if its a good deal snap it up...ol gsxrs seem to hold there resale value well...if i were you i'd prolly get it
    if some is good, more is better, then too much is just enough.

    thanks PeteDawg, thats kind of what i was thinking. i figure if i pick it up, ride it for the rest of the season, and then use it for my downpayment on a new bike next year. that way i don't blow my saving on hookers and booze again.

    Either get an SRAD or the first gen gixxers. You'll thank yourself later. Less weight than the gixxers in the middle eras. And SRADs are a bit dated, but are still up to date enough that they can hang with the latest and greatest in the corners.

    SRAD = Suzuki Ram Air Direct

    SRAD RAM AIR-INTAKE SYSTEM

    is designed to supply the carburetors (or fuel injection throttle bodies) with a steady supply of cool dense air to help the engine develop maximum power. Air enters through two openings on each side of the front fairing and travels through sealed tubes directly into the air cleaner. As road speed increases the air velocity in the system increases and pressurizes the air cleaner. This helps the engine develop maximum high rpm power.

    I agree..buy a SRAD if you can. Ive owned a 89 and a 93. I liked the 89 WAY better than the 93. It was heavy not nimble at all and it was a purple !!

    I own a SRAD now and I highly recomend it if its in the budget. If not look for a 88-90 instead of the 93.

    1996 the GSX-R 750 SRAD came out.....mouled from the RGV-R.

    1997 the first 600 came out for Suzuki

    I'm not really familiar with that bike but the difference is probably just that our bike came with really cool stickers on the tail for the SRAD. The bikes are commonly called SRAD's because on it.
