Any persistant issues with 01 929's?

Hi,
I'm in the market to get a 01 929 that was stolen but has sense been sitting at my buddy's mechanic shop waiting to get a new title. It needs a few minor things, new chain and sprocket set, and a rear tire, key set, and possibly some other minor things (I believe the chain broke so I have to check the damage on that) but outside of that the bike seems to be in good shape.

I'm wondering what common issues I should look for on these bikes. I just got off a 97 GSXR 600 that was a nightmare cause previous owners beat it so bad. But it also had quite a few "natural" issues (burn thru stators and rectifiers, crappy Cam chain tensioners etc). Anything similar on these bikes?

Any info is helpful, hopefully I'll be joining the forum for a good while with my 929

Stator and rectifier.
HTEV jamming up.
Servo motor failing.
Possible oil leaks from stator cover area due to crash damage.
Fuel pressure regulator failure.

Turn the ignition on to see if it throws any error codes.
Can you ride it to check the engine and transmission are okay?
If the chain broke and banged the cases you'll want to see if there are any leaks there also.

How do I check codes? lol, the SRAD wasn't as complicated as the 929 .

Oh I plan on firing it up an listening for noises plus with the chain off I can run thru it's gears without riding it plus checking it over, for oil leaks, and other issues, before buying, no doubt about it.

If its been crashed, they like to drop oil from the stator cover. Make sure you check it.

Just turn the ignition on and a light will flash on the dash indicating any problems with the fuel injection system.
I have the '98 SRAD 750 which is injected :-)

Re: Any persistant issues with 01 929's?

Ok so the FI is kinda similar to a car then? It runs a check on itself but then cuts out? (if everything checks out)

I'm going to check the whole bike over (me and my friend actually, two eyes better than one). I think they took the bike off into a field where they snapped the chain (least that's what I suspect from what they told me at the shop), which they laid the bike over and haul arse on foot. I'm hoping it's fine cause IF I get it the price is gunna b dirty cheap. The guys that stole it basicly stole it, started doing tricks burning the rear tire and I assume went into a field with it an busted the chain which is where they then left it and the tow company picked it up.

Man I WISH I had a 750 FI SRAD (thought about getting the stuff and swapping it to my 600's frame *drooooooools* )

I also have a 750 srad. Decent bike. I love the 929 so much better. And just from you prior comment.... You will actually have four eyes instead of two. Which is even better. Just a thought. Finally, the swap for the 750 isnt too bad. My buddy did the swap. Took him a few weekends.

Very true, very true. I loved my SRAD cause it had a bigger seat for me and my passenger, and had a good amount of trunk space. Which is why when I saw this 929 I fell in love,cause the one spot my 600 lacked was thru squiggles with a passenger I had to work rather hard cause of it's weight an lack of power for 2 people. Plus I didn't loose my seats OR trunk space a major for that. How hard are those issues mentioned to fix on these bikes?

Nothing difficult.
Probably the worst is welding any cracks around the stator cover.
I found the SRAD is better for the track and the 929 great for the road.
The SRAD pillion seat is terrible as my girlfriend and daughter both end up sitting right on the front edge of it. The 929 has even more trunk space than the SRAD's. I've even carried a five-liter fuel can in there :-)

Re: Any persistant issues with 01 929's?

Yea my girl always ended up basically smashing me into my tank on the SRAD (poor kids, gunna b a little special now ), which luckily after the first ride we had figured out to work around that.

Lol, don't tell my G/F bout the trunk cause she already carry's way to much on trips .

Is the HTEV a issue that could ruin the motor (it has a high tech name, normally that means it gows....so does the motor). The stator cover doesn't worry me to terribly much cause push comes to shove I'd get a shiny one off ebay

You can simply lock the HTEV open and forget about it.
It isn't going to damage the engine but it could be annoying if it were all loose I guess. Mine never moved when I disconnected it though.
Not the stator cover itself. The engine cases under the stator cover can crack from impacts.
