WHAT TO LOOK FOR

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Gsx-r750 Group Test -

Signs of track use: the SRADS were the first GSX-R750S since the Sling­shots that made any sense on a cir­cuit, so plenty got raced and/ or sig­nif­i­cant track day ac­tion (track days didn’t re­ally ex­ist pre-1990). Check plas­tic con­di­tion matches ’pegs and grips, and look for drilled sump plugs.

Sur­pris­ingly, Suzuki’s ex­em­plary record on gear­boxes took a knock with the SRAD; run it through sec­ond and third to check for jump­ing un­der load.

If you can smell petrol in the oil, the fuel pump could be fail­ing. En­gine should be quiet; a cam­chain rat­tle is an easy fix but good for hag­gling.
