This bike is a truly unique example of a late model GSX-R in exceptional shape. Completely restored with rebuilt motor and painted only a few thousand miles ago, he chassis has 20K on it. Tons of extras, uned, itled, egistered, nd ready to ride. I am thinning out my herd but not in any rush to sell so if it doesn't hit my buy it now or a reasonable offer is made no big deal, 'll keep riding. I am simply testing the waters so make me an offer I can't refuse or simply gawk at my photos and enjoy:-)

The restoration includes the following: A long stroke 750cc motor (similar to the RK model, rguably the best of the oil cooled) with Weisco piston kit, 71cc w/ 11:1 compression, ocket port work done on the head, ew bearings and gaskets all around. The transmission had the gears under-cut and shimmed (shifts like butter). Has the original Mikuni Slingshot BST36mm but rebuilt with Stage 3 jets and SS needles. Also, had a set of custom Velocity stacks made with screens and set of RamAir filters to slip over (for riding on the street). It has a ceramic coated exhaust (Xtreme Coating) full system from Yoshimura with a polished aluminum canister, ess than 100 miles on it. Suspension has been completely over hauled. The Front forks are off a 92 1100 (inverted style tubes) with new oil and seals, G valve kit installed for 180+ lb rider. The rear is off a 92 1100 as well but has very trick and ultra-rare Metmachex swing arm (imported from across the pond) with eccentric adjusters, ecently had polished less than 100 miles. New Super Sprocket and X-Ring chain, ad to go down a tooth on the counter sprocket due to too much torque off the line. Both wheels have new bearings have been powder coated, he rear has the lip polished and cleared. New rubber all around - Pirelli Diablo Rosso II. Battery is new- Yusa sealed. SS braid brake lines. Paint has been repainted to the factory colors. Seat reupholstered to factory spec vinyl. Tank has a rebuilt petcock and the inside is uber clean. LED turn signals instead of those droopy rabbit ears. Side covers have been polish if you wanted to go the half fairing / naked look. Comes with a factory service manual, ear seat and tank bra. I know am missing something but I have a folder knee deep of records and receipts you'll get.

Complete serviced done 100 miles ago, ew oil, lugs, arbs and valves serviced, ll maintenance done by local Suzuki mechanic for over 20yrs.

As much work has been done, t's not in concourse or museum condition and or completely bone stock. All modz I feel have been tastefully done and are period correct and have improved performance or look but of course that's subjective. There are some blemishes, cratches etc. from general wear and tear, he tank some scratches due to belt bucket encounter (really pissed at that one), he plastic is great shape no cracks or brittle spots or holes. There are some chips in the paint and on the lower fairing left side on the paint has some scraps from the lean angles in the cannons but hardly noticeable. I'll try to catch all this in my photos but message me with questions if you're serious. Mechanically it is excellent, uns perfect, hifts smooth and easy. Very nice to ride and well balanced; you can let go of the bars and turn just by tilting your head, o joke. Never abused or down, lways garaged, lways kept tuned and clean. If you appreciate old skool Suzuki, ou'll love this one. One of the better late model Gixxer’s out there that will only go up in value and kewl factor. I was lucky enough to own a Double R (RK model) before and this bike rides and handles better for half the price. Own a piece of history without breaking the bank.
