just thought id show you a few pics of my project bike and see what the gsxr community think of the retro machines..
The first pic is what it started life as:
since then i have fitted some modification:
RENTHAL CHAIN AND SPROCKETS 15T FRONT 47T REAR
FRONT 6 POT HAYABUSA CALIPERS
TL1000R 6 INCH WIDE REAR WHEEL
ZX12R FITMENT 200/50/17 DIABLO CORSA 3 REAR TYRE.
REFURBISHED REAR SPRING AND SHOCK( RED SPRING )
25MM REAR JACK UP KIT
A16 STUBBY CAN WITH HEAT WRAPPED EXHAUST
DYNO JETTED CARBS TO SUIT CAN AND FILTER
MINI INDICATORS FRONT AND REAR SAME TYPE
BAGLUX TANK COVER AND TANK BAG
FULLY SERVICED INCLUDING 10-40 SEMI- SYNTH AND PLUGS
Also i have removed some crap
TRIMMED REAR UNDERTRAY
REMOVED OLD CHAIN AND SPROCKETS(TIGHT SPOT)
FRONT CALIPERS 4POT TYPE WERE SIEZED
FRONT DISCS WERE PITTED
REMOVED THE REDICULOUSLY OVERSIZED INDICATORS
PLUGS AND FILTERS REPLACED
The previous owner had left her in his garden to rot in typical english weather for a couple of years, but it had full service history so i could see some potential.
what do you think of the bike and is there any further suggestions for improvement.
im thinking of fitting next
K3 GSXR 1000 FRONT FORKS WITH YOLKS AND STEERING DAMPER
WAVY FRONT AND REAR DISCS
A SIMILAR IN COLURE FRONT WHEEL AND CORSA 3 TYRE
LEVERS OF SOME STUBBY TYPE VERIETY tbc
12 AUX SOCKET ( FOR THE TOMTOM) AND SOME NEW GRIPS
Please excuse any nievity for the modifications as this is the first project bike iv done, the bike leans in and corners very well indeed and feels far more stable in the corners compared to the original setup. Dont get me wrong it is a road bike and enjoys as much for looks as i do for ridability. but it feels great to ride and is very confedence inspiring.
thanks for looking mike p
