There are two beautiful 97 750's for sale in this area offered by a local independent shop. On the surface the bikes have low miles and appear in good shape. Titles are clear, and none are "salvaged titled".

Is there anything quirky about the carb'ed versus the FI models?

Do these models have any electrical gremlin histories? ...any other histories specific to the 750?

What are the luggage options?

Have you encountered any heat issues on longer rides?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Mine runs great. No probs. As with any Duc, just know that every 12k miles you're going to spend <1k on new belts and major tune up so if the miles are close to it make sure you factor that into the price.

I had a 97 750 and a carbed 02 M620 at the same time
now have just the 97 (well and an 01 900)
if i had to keep just one of those, i might even keep the 750

FI can be less trouble starting when cold, adapts better to altitude changes, but a carbed bike can be tuned to run very well.

luggage- tank, tail and saddlebags (with low pipes)

heat no problem when riding (i've taken a long ride at 115 temp with no bike trouble)
can be an issue if stuck in traffic at high temps (air cooled after all)

to krunk- shop around...12k service shouldnt cost that much on a 2-valve
i like nichols in milpitas, or Valley Ducati Service in Reseda if you are up for a drive

Sorry Hooligan, that should have been <1k. My bill was about 800+, but I did need a new chain and some other minor work.
