Can you identify this bike?

Owner swears it's an gsxr 600. Even says it's stamped on the frame. I'm not so sure, frame looks all wrong. He was told it was an 03 750, ummmm... Nope.

I think he means it's stamped "GSX600" which makes it a 600 Katana.

That's definitely a Katana. Engine, fuel tank, frame and swing arm all match an 03. The wheel does not due to the angle of the mag but that doesn't mean much and the pic doesn't offer the best angle.

If the owner says it's a 750 then it's a GSX-F 750 Katana.

To tell the engine size, look at the numbers on the right side of the engine case just above where the oil pan meet the case.

If it starts with the letter "N" it's a 600cc engine. (500cc-599cc)
If it starts with the letter "R" it's a 750cc engine. (700cc-749cc)

Thanks guys, was pretty sure it was a Katana, but needed more experienced eyes than mine. The guy he got it from said it was an 03 Gsxr with an 01 Gsxr 750 motor in it. He really got taken on that deal.

I gave a 92, GSX - F Katana, the frame looks identical to your pic. Great bike, but not an R.
