Pair of GSXR's

Post by Drunkn Munky » Sun Jul 01, 2018 6:45 pm

I recently picked up this pair of GK76a's mainly as I needed a bike track ready for cadwell and also they were very cheap, they were one of those rare buys that when you turn up to collect are actually a lot better than they look in the photos, I filled my van up with 2 bikes and good amount of decent spares.

The race bike is very well put together and needs absolutely nothing, the other one although sporting a wrong dream machine paint job is all there and even better has turned out to be a genuine sp.

Unfortunately due to a multitude of fuck ups (not bike related for once) the gsxr never made it to cadwell which was really disappointing although I got a last minute booking at brands on Thursday and although swamped with £10k plus ducatis and r1's the little gsxr provided heaps of smiles and didn't miss a beat all day. Most will know my heart will always belong to the NC but i can't fault the gsxr, it feels light, nimble, fast and pulled clean throughout the rev range, apart from some new rubber I haven't touched it and most likely won't it's cost pennies really and does what's asked of it.

The sp on the other hand although mechanically sound needs a little tlc and I'm liking the idea of returning it to Oem colours, I may even make a road bike from it :o

I'll upload some pics when I can work out how without photobucket

Reduce the larger dimension to 1280 pixels.

I use imgur, and the editing is a piece of cake :peace:

Wrong link, when you click on the photo it'll bring up a load of links to copy. Second from bottom is the one you want :peace:

Any updates?
I'd get the SP back to OE; there's probably not many of them out there anymore.

And the SP

Ive enjoyed riding the red one on track ive no idea why they get a bad rep although im thinking i may move the red one on and concentrate on the SP which is now on the bench so i can go over it. Its a little tatty and fuelling seems a bit off down low so the carbs are out to check the dreaded o rings, i will never complain about V4 carbs again there a breeze compared to these but credit to suzuki for a pretty ingenious design on the removal of the carbs, shame they hadn't caught on to the captive nut idea throughout the rest of the bike
