I am wondering if anyone has any feedback on the good and bad on a used 2000 zl600efi. It has less than 1000 miles on it. Anything I should be weary of?

Pretty reliable sled. It's a non APV so it is a bit thirstier and louder. Also, it has no rear coupler blocks so it will ride on the soft side. The only other gripe I can think of was the gas tank/seat junction area. A lot of riders didn't like the design.

I agree with Kevin. I owned a '00 ZR600 LE and it was a good all around sled if you could keep fuel in the tank. It was a pig with fuel. With todays gas prices I suggest that you wait and look for an '01. The '01 will have APV which would make it better on fuel and I bet even a little quicker.

I have a 99 Zl 600 EFI and it gets around the 12-13 mpg. Plenty of power. has been a good sled for me. More than likely that sled will need the shocks freshened up after sitting around for 5 years. I would hesitate to purchase it.

I have a 99 and it gets about 12 mpg, when riding it like a sane person. If you constantly hold it to the bar it will get 7-8 mpg. My sled has been reliable other than the motor. You have to put pistons in it every 3000-3500 miles or else you are looking at a burn down. The coupler blocks will do nothing to stiffen up the ride. They will how ever keep the front skis on the ground as that sled likes to lift the skis when you go around a cornor.
