1997 YZF750RJ

Pros,
Rides well
Great bike to learn on
Very forgiving
Loves twisties
Plenty of top end
Not many people have seen them so its one of those "whats that?" bikes
Pretty comfy (very soft seat)

Cons,
Very little low end power(good for learning though)
VERY HEAVY (453 wet)
Almost no aftermarket or replacement parts
Carbs dont like to stay in sinc
Gas milage leaves something to be desired (30-35 MPG)

Thumbs up

82 Katana 750/?

Cons, Piece of crap. Project in the works.

Pros,, Motor out of 1100 GSXR or 1200 Bandit
Swing arm from Gixer, Bandit, or maybe a single sider.

Riding Position, Made to fit like a glove.

Power, Should be lots of power, maybe go 1216 kit, cams, and carbs.

Handling, Better than original with USD forks and a monoshock.

Looks, Stunning.
