Looking at one this morning for my little brother and wanted to get an idea as far as what kind of services or parts should he be prepared to have to do/fix in the near future with a bike like this with this kind of milage?

Thanks

Bump .... on my own post
Got a chance to look and test drive the bike this morning and it shifted ok and all the gears worked .
The bad ... 1- The guy had to rep it at the begging for a few second for the bike to stay on 2 - The bike gets stuck around 8rpm and don't not wana pass 8. ( When reving the bike in nutural it did not seem to have this problem from what I recal)
What could be the cause ?
Do the carbs need to be cleaned or is there more to it possibly ?

always a good idea to clean the carbs when a carbed bike is purchased - along with other post-purchase maintenance, unless you know the seller and know he/she takes good care of their stuff.

suzuki clutches are top notch. Unless the bike has been flogged at the track or stunted, your clutch will more than likely be fine. Same with brake rotors and such - these bikes are tanks - the only thing really knocks these bikes out is failure on regular maintenance and upkeep. Usually if these bikes go down, the bike will get up before the rider and roll over to you like "dude, wtf"

for these year bikes, it's a GREAT idea to replace the spring loaded cam chain tensioner with the APE manual tensioner...24k miles...if it's not done...do it. its' a $50 shipped part that will save you big $$$$ in the long run. Remember to have it checked every 6k miles or so.

these bikes aren't happy unless they are getting/burning FUEL - plus they hate cold starts and are even more a PIA with hot starts (great on the track [i've never been, but hear great things] and group rides, but stop and go traffic will anger them)

the r/r is another part that gets replaced over time. The heat these things generate is pretty wicked...some cases a new starter is recommended.

i've owned a 99 600 and a 99 750 - awesome bikes, but it takes a certain character to deal with them and love them he'll fall in love with it as soon as he leans it over

24k is poopoo mileage on these - RIDE ON

Thanks for your advice and opinion man .
Ya we will have to get the carbs cleaned for sure but I just hope that will fix the problem with the rpm geting stuck at around 8k.
What is a cam chain tensioner?
He has not had the chance to see the bike yet but he seems to be in love with it already based on what I told him and from pictures lol

the cct is keeps the cam chain taught. the oem spring loaded one adjusts itself over time as the cam chain wears and loosens. Once the spring inside wears, it will cause the part to fail, causing the cam to jump teeth = a shit-ton of problems. You may want to check it...the 8k rpm problem ur describing sounds like it. Although it could just be dirty carbs, stuck floats, pilot/idle screw etc etc. Has the bike been jetted?

how do you check the spring loaded cct? pull it out (sitting on the bike, it's on the right side of the bike) and try to compress the plunger that houses the spring...if it slides back even a little bit, replace it.

check out gixxer.com for a complete how-to on checking and installing the manual cam chain tensioner....it's about 80% of the problems for these bikes on that site

this info is mostly for the 97-99 gsxr...i think the 96 600 was a katana model which maybe a lil different, i'm not sure.....only mentioning that because your post included 96-99

Hmm sorry unfortunetly I don't understand this mechanical stuff to well .... Ill have to do a bit of research on that . We ended up buying the bike . Its a 99 with 24k a dd exhust , sliders,tinted wind screen, almost new tires, new undertail kit, side plate mount, carbon mirrors, rear spools , gsxr seat,helmet ,jacket ,cover and a ket kit that has not been installed on the bike yet for $2400 which is a pretty good deal in my opinion as long as it does not cost him a lot to get it running the way it should.

And after riding it again , it seems like the revs stop climing after 8k on ever gear pretty much .

If it will rev past 8k while still but not on the road make sure all the air lines are properly attached, not having the ram air tubes, and all others hooked up will cause problems with the float bowls. And will essentially shut off fuel above a specific air pressure/speed (rpm/gear combo).

Happened to me when I put a new motor in my bike but didnt reconnect the air tubes.
