def. the one with no damage. think about it ... its newer... yes more miles but not by that much. and you dont have to worrie about buying new farings... it already comes with good ones. i would go with the one with more miles and the better farings. GL

I agree. Miles dont meam that much espec that few. Plus 1 year newer plus no damage. Unless you know how, what, when, where aout each bike but if ur goin blind then the newer one is it.

I would not pay more then $4k for either. Not sure where you live, but in Florida you should be able to find a 2003 or 2004 with no more then 10k miles for 5 grand, no damage. Checked some local bikes for sale, did not find an GSXR 750's at this time, but a 2005 GSXR 1k just sold for $5500 w/ 7900 miles.

I agree with you, but based on the fact that he's giving us km's and not miles I'm assuming he's not from the U.S. Used gsxrs are expensive in Canada and Europe. If he is in the U.S. though he needs to look around a little more.

i live in calgary alberta canada ... its pretty hard to find a good bike i wish i could go down to florda to get one but sadly i can't at this time ... with the extra 20000 kms on it should i be worried about anything specific ? like i was talking to a few friends and they said get the 02 because it only needs the fairings i'm a little skeptic about the 03 because although theres no real damage per say what abut the mechanics of it the chain ,the sprocket say the rings or anything???

as long a its has been maintained properly, go with the higher km one. you will go nuts looking at damaged fairings everyday
unless you plan on laying it down, then go with the damaged one:thumbup:
+1. 10,000 miles MAINTAINED is better than 5,000 NEGLECTED. Try to find someone with some mechanical experience to help you find out which one is mechanically sound. I'd rather buy a dropped bike with minor rash and cracks in the fairings than a bike that's ran dirty oil, etc.
