Question Kaw ZX-9R mileage

So how long will those ZX-9R engines go? I'm looking at a '99 with 38k on it so that's about 3450 miles/year. Doesn't sound too bad but is engine coming up to maturity??

Good point. Also depends on how well/often bike basic maintenance was done.

Dude selling it says his bro-in-law is previous owner and original owner. But yeah you're right these are sport bikes.

I wonder what a good price would be... I've gotta go look at it but it's impossible to see what's happening inside engine. Maybe buy it, ride it around the block and bust a rod.

zx9s are one of the best choices of older bikes to buy. After the the ZRX12. My boy had a zx9. and he just replaced all the outer parts motor is untouched and he has 45k miles on it. we still do trips to San Antonio evry couple of months.

Buy the zx9 you will be platinum. Just don't pay more than $4,000 and thats $,4000 if its in excellent condition.
