I just bought the 1998 yamaha srx 700 and it has 4000 km on it and i have driven yet and i was wondering is it a reliable sled? is the gas mileage on it good?

Thanks!! i called yamaha motors yesterday and i gave them my serial number and they said there were two recalls on the sled.they looked in there book i guess and they said both the recalls were fixed on my sled. i went outside and looked at the crank and the front suspesion and all the welds look to be really thick and new.. i was wondering if you knew what othere recall was on that sled..

Thanks

One recall was the brake bleeder . As for the rewelded crank that was only if you had problems, not recalled . The other may have been the rivets for the IFS mounting plate on the running boards.

One of the guys I ride with has a '00 700 SRX. It gets better mileage than my Phazer. He gets the best mileage and has the least problems of our group.
