    Very simple to work on. Did a ton of work trying to figure out a heat soaked bogging issue. Rebuilt carbs 2 times (first time touching a carb x4) replaced coil packs. Paid Columbia Motorsport several hundred dollars to fix. They said it was dirt in carb (bs). Finally figured it out. I didnít replace these $2 sleeves on the spark plug wires that insulate the plug from the block. Finally found a little cut in 1 that shorted the spark to the block when hot. Ducking learning experience.

    I think the new Katana actually looks pretty cool, but for $13k+ with a 3.2 gallon tank it's a solid no-thank-eww.

    Edit to add: Convince me to look harder at a newer Gixxer 750 though.

    With the price of most bikes consistently climbing, this allegedly brand new $9500 (discounted) gixxer 750..... pretty sure they were $9999 back in 2005. Seems like a no brained if your wallet and back can take it.

    That's a solid deal for sure, but "if your back can take it" definitely applies in my case.

    The last version is now 16. Way too old.

    I kinda like it as well. Probably one of those 'looks better in person' bikes.
