Thanks... Welcome to the site Batgirl. Be sure to read the F.A.Q. on the main page, it'll give you alot of basic knowledge on your bike.. or you can search through the boards or post up a question if you need anything. <img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle> Don't hesitate to ask! =)
Note sure about the 97 & 98 being similar enough to use parts for both. I would call a Kawi dealer parts department and ask if they'er the same or not. You can also try www.buykawasaki.com and look up the specs for each bike.
Good luck <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
