First Post..

New member here from Oklahoma, thanks for the add.
Am not a current owner yet, but am diligently searching for the right bike that's not too far away. (Right!)

Current ride is a GSX-S1000F that I love, and will keep, but the GSXR bug has bit....

Welcome

I've read that if you get a good flash of the S- you basically have the R motor wise?

K5 1000 - ECU Flash; Manual CCT, K&N, Yoshi Muffler, Ti Midpipe; Q3+ 190/55 rear; 520 chain -1/+1; GP Shifting

Welcome. A naked and a sportbike is a good combination to have!

Well, I have a m4 full exhaust and a 2WDW flash, but its still not a GSXR1000. It does have the K5 motor, just reworked for the street.

Mine is actually the faired version, so it's great for the hwy.
