My new (to me) Suzuki GSX-R600

I just picked up my first ever bike today from a friend for $700!

It is a 2000 Suzuki GSX-R600 with the Black and Yellow scheme.
It didn't have a battery but we got it to start up with my moms car battery

I had my uncles look at the bike because they were huge motorcycle nuts when they used to live in Mexico. One of them said that the carburetor was fine because the bike started. Anyone agree with this?

The bike only has about 10k miles on it.

This is my very first bike and I don't have my M endorsement just yet, but I'm heading over to Awesome Cycles on the 8/9th of December to take my MSF course!

I have already bought my helmet, gloves, and new shoes. I just need a Jacket and armor because I don't plan on buying more pants haha

Anyways, here are a few pics of it.

run seafoam (walmart/autozone/etc) through in the gas.

After you've ridden a few thousand miles hop on someone else's carb'd bike and see if it feels way better. As long as it runs and rides alright you prob dont need to worry about synching/etc.


Welcome btw!

welcome!! You should probably have all the fluids changed, lube the chain, and have the bike looked at by Awesome Cycles just to be safe.

It was the last year that it was carbed.... They introduced FI on the 2001 gixxers. I don't know if I should feel good or not about that... I hear that it's a lot easier to work on carbed bikes.

Looks like 98' was the first year FI was introduced on the 750's. I'm not really an expert on this though haha.

My uncles looked at the bike though and it seemed like it really was carbed. I'll take a closer look tomorrow if I can haha

You have a carb'd bike. 98 99 750 were the only Fi bike of that body style.
+1 on the Seafoam. great stuff.
On a side note.... just about all parts are changable with the 96-99 750. This will help you find parts easier.

Some how I end up with a srad(your body style) about once a year.

If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

That it would haha, the front one dry rotted open I believe but it does indeed need new tires to even get on the road.

I always wear jeans and I will have armor under so I should be fine. Well I assume that I should be right?

Cool, thanks for the advice. So I essentially have a 98/99 700 on my 600?

it's kinda like fast N furious.... You have all the same parts thats don't have anything to do with making it faster in common with the 750.

What side of town are you on?

Jeans, depends on the speed and how you fall.
Should be good for most applications.

Always know limits and consequences of speeds and your bike and clothing and try to stay within them.

Always look twice for cops.
