I am currently looking at purchasing a '97 XCR 600 triple that my neighbour is hangin onto. The sled is in good shape with 3000 miles on it, and I can pick it up for a good price. I should also add that he is a phenomenal mechanic, and he just recently went through the engine and did the rings and bearings. Anyways, a couple people have told me that it would be wise to stay away from the XLT triples for various reasons, so I'm looking for a few other opinions. Any advice I can get will be much appreciated.
