Q: I've been looking for a used Suzuki GSX-R750 for about two years now. While I've found a few examples that are cosmetically in very good shape, the owners of these bikes seem to believe in zero maintenance. Apparently these bikes are purchased, abused and sold every two years, buying a new one on credit and repeating the cycle. Most of the lack of maintenance is easily remedied, but my biggest concern is a lack of oil changes. I found a pristine 2006 model with 3400 miles for $6500, except it had never had an oil change. This is a really good price, but how much damage has been done without the initial 600-mile oil change? The owner hasn't let it warm up before taking off and revving it to redline, either. Should I walk away?
