I can't believe how many people look at my bike and ask what year is that and when I tell them it's a 97 they say wow that bike looks great for being 8 years old. <br /> Just a few things that the bike needs: <ol> <li>Jet Kit, the throttle response is a little slow. *but what can you do, it's a carbureted engine.</li> <li>An exhaust, but that is for personal reasons.</li> </ol> Other than that, I love the bike, although finding aftermarket parts for a bike that is 8 years old is kind of hard. So if you buy one and want to buy aftermarket parts you search real hard! <br /> Drive hard, and drive fast!

This is an excellent "first time bike". This is the first street bike that I rode. It was a little shaky at first, but some new tires quickly changed that. I put on a D&#038;D show n go chrome slip on, and the bike responded very well. The sound is great and the power picked up too. The only down side to this bike is trying to find parts and info. There are no aftermarket fairings for this bike; it all has to come from Yamaha, which can cost a lot. The bike has a lot of get up and go, but I would like it to wheelie when I approach high revs in first or second. It wants to but it just doesn't have the power to come up. I am looking for a 15 tooth front sprocket to give it more power on the front end. The original is a 16 tooth.

I own a 1997 YZF 750R with 10,000 Miles. I have only had one small problem with the bike and it is not specific to this model. It is present in all previous to the R1 Yamaha sportbikes. The front disc rotors became slightly warped at about 7000 miles. The fix is $400 to $600 dollars depending on who you buy the replacement disc's from. My bike runs as strong today as when it was first purchased. It does not use any oil and is a complete joy to ride. I installed a Yoshimura RS-3 (Race Baffle) end can and a K&#038;N Filter. I always use Yamalube Synthetic blend motor oil. and my bike has put out on the dyno 110 Rear wheel horsepower. I would recommend this motorcycle to any one wanting a great handling fast sportbike. And it is comfortable to ride as well. ALSO the 26,000 mile valve adjustment interval Yamaha claims should be done at more like 10-15K. These bikes are also picky as to the tires used I use Dunlop D 207 ZR and have had no problems.

I bought this bike new. Around 7,000 miles it developed a miss and started to smoke when first started. I then took motorcycle to a YAMAHA dealer for the mentioned problems. The dealer notified me that the valves were not closing completely. When I asked why this happened, I was told that it could be due to soft material used to make the valves. After repair was completed, I again asked why my 7,000-mile motorcycle needed a valve job. I was told that during repairs that they checked the valve seats and fond that they were not cut properly. I also had a new problem. My throttle was hard to twist. When I questioned this, the reply was that they had adjusted the cables and would be like that for a little while. WRONG! Had bike back to the same dealer several times for that problem and for it running rich. So rich my wife would not ride or stand behind it. After getting no satisfaction I called YAMAHA, told them about my bike needing a valve job at 7,000 miles. I also told them that it was starting to act the same way again. I then asked if they would cover the bill when I took the bike back to the dealer that I purchased it from. I was told that their policy was for me to go back to where it was repaired and at the most that dealer would give me a break on parts and labor since my bike was out of warranty. I asked why they would not back their product. I was told that they want the dealer to fix any problems. Now I had it back to the dealer to fix the throttle several times. And they were not qualified enough to fix it right! I had to buy a shop manual and fix it. The fix was to line up the alignment holes properly. My bike is back at the dealer that I purchased it from. He called and told me that he traced the problem down to 2 things. Rings or valves. I think after 25+ years of owning YAMAHA'S that I am going to switch my brand loyalty to HONDA.
