What to Expect

GSX good for the first 30k then valve, cams and camchain problems. Also chronic starting problems – check HT leads, coils, etc and remove killswitch; electrics have a periodic need to burn out even when upgraded. Needs stock exhaust to avoid flat spots but collector corrodes. Haven’t seen any older than 60k. GS250T custom version with odd handling and quick rot chassis and electrics.
