Gixxer question

Im looking into getting a gixxer 600......and I found a nice price one ($2000.00) its an 02'. It's stretched and lowred I know its not a good first bike. So can I get it back to stock as far as the length?

Honestly, the 02 isn't a horrible bike to start on. Bring that thing back to stock is going to be bit of a PIA. Also, not to be a to those who like to stretch and lower and all but most of them don't maintain their bikes very well. I would be reluctant to buy it bc of this fact alone.

but yes, you can get it back to stock.

Just make sure you have someone with you that KNOWS what they are looking at. Buying something that hasnt been properly maintained can be VERY expensive especially if you can't fix it yourself.
