Question

I was curious what the major differences are between a 97 and 98 gixxer are, cosmetically? Of course the 98 has fuel injection, but other than the engine and components, how much is different? Frame? Fairing (not colors or graphics, just shape and mounting points)? Windshield?

How does the reserve work on a 97 bike? I know the 98 has a sensor and even a low fuel light when it hits reserve, then blinking light when it gets low on reserve. Does the 97 have a fuel switch?

Thanks for the info. Just curious about a few different things as I have a 1997 gsx-r 750 on the way. Curious what parts from a 98 I can use on this. I have a full set of 98 fairings, and I just wanted to know if I am going to have any trouble with it. I know for a fact the left and right lower fairing fits, just not about the rest. I also wondered if I was going to get a new windshield, if it was going to need a 97 or 98. I vaguely remember hearing the 98 had different mounting holes.

Yeah, I am not sure either. I am guessing that the 97 gixxer might also use an automatic reserve like the 98. On the 97 fairing I don't see any opening for a knob like on a Honda F3. I know that a friends Suzuki GS500E had a little metal switch for primary - prime - reserve that was right below the tank and near the frame before the rear set. Perhaps if it has one, it is a small switch like this semi-hidden. I doubt it though, my guess is auto-resereve.

GSXR

96-99 750 and 97-2000 600's all use the same basic body work. None of them a reserve, they all use the same light system for low fuel warning.
