Selling GSX-R750K4

Got the 1000K5 two weeks ago, bling bling, but out of town until end of month so hardly any chance to ride it yet. So...

Anyone know anyone who knows anyone who wants to buy a 750?

One year old, just under 20,000km, never been dropped, never lost a sump plug, original unused bodywork back on, regularly serviced, spot-on dyno readout. Asking S$15k ono.

PM me if any interest.

One thrashed and crashed old bike, new model just round the corner so soon to be very obsolete, only attractive to people that are simply stupid .... i.e I just might be interested :-)

Fancy dropping the price a HUGE amount, and taking part exchange for a lovely Suzuki DRZ400, just the thing for taking the family to the local dairy...

Bad luck Legend

Just sold the 750 (for a reasonable amount) which by the way has never been dropped. That was the previous one (K1) which I crashed at PG on T1, and at Sepang at T9 and T12 plus the kamikaze Pizza Hut scooter. Hard apprenticeship but it neither made me faster nor spoilt my fun.

By the way, thanks for calling me simply stupid, the web was made for people like you, sorry to trespass.

For everybody else, go get a 1000K5 and find out for yourselves why the magazines like it more than they usually drool over the latest kit.

I thought you'd never ask

Just back from a second spin to run it in round the twisties in Malaysia. It's much more stable in rough corners than any of the previous Gixxers, in fact nothing seems to unsettle it, gives you a lot of confidence.

Only flaw I can find is that the petrol tank bulges so much it gets in the way of your inside arm when doing u-turns, and it can throw you off balance.

I don't think the designers were too pre-occupied with its car park manners when they pencilled this one. But your quote is a classic Trevor... I'm going to send it in too Fast Bikes and see if we can have it printed !!

Looks shit hot 1-4, except for that dog ugly can......

Bet it feels like a rocket compared to the 750

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

I never understood that exhaust. But the question is whether it makes any diff between the old one and new one.
