600 rolled 100k on the way to work yesterday. Now I've got no odometer. Next month going to hit up eBay for a new gauge cluster with low miles on it. Unless anyone has an 03+ one they want to sell...

Seeing all these really high miles on mostly stock bikes make me feel great about my purchase. Just grabbed a 98 GSX750F for $600 with 5216 on it. Old owner had it parked for a few years, said he couldnt get it running. Fresh gas, new battery and it fired up happy. I think im going to look into cleaning carbs, the old fuel is sure to be gummed up.

Thanks for sharing. How much was the compression in psi in each cylinder last time you measured?

1998 600 with 92K on it. It's been sitting for about 4 years and thats the mileage it had when I bought it for $350 last month. After cleaning out the carbs it runs pretty good (although I need new carb kits to seal it all up properly. I am looking forward to riding it
