Rizla - GSXR 750
Over the winter I have been hard at it rebuilding two bikes. The first bike I started on was a GSXR 750 2000 model. The bike was purchased off ebay, for a very reasonable price. The bike had suffered a big front end crash. Therefore the bike had to be stripped down to it's bare bones. The frame was straightened and painted black so it looked like the 2003 models.
After many hours in the garage the final spec is:
- Resprung and valved front forks by Maxton
- Ohlins full gp spec rear shocker and Ohlins steering damper
- Harris rear sets
- Yoshimura full race system
- Power commander programed by Monster mob techs 134bhp at the rear wheel.
- BMC air fliter
- Harris clipon handle bars
- Harris fairing bracket
- OZ wheels
- Goodridge Hoses
- SBS brake pads
- Upgraded callipers to 6 pot Tokico
- Brembo Masdter cylinder and brake lever
- Full race fairing painted similar to Rizla 2003
- John Reynolds is going to sign the tank in the next few weeks.
Jobs left to do when I get some money:
- Cresent Suzuki Slipper clutch
- First stage engine tuning.
- Neil Harris 01476577334 or 07779348606. Based in Grantham on the A1 north of Peterborough
Fellow GoStar Racer Tony Norman coerced me into purchasing a rather shoddy but mechanically sound SV650 of his mate Stuart. I think I have a reputation for taken a shoddy bike a turning it into a nice bike (hopefully this reputation will continue).
The bike had been used as a daily commuter round London, and thus the bike need a good seeing to. I stripped the bike down to the bare frame then spent hours cleaning each part one by one. The wheels and forks were resprayed silver.
The side fairings were re-welded, and resprayed in the original colour. I fully serviced the bike, replacing filters, brake pads, rubber hoses and replacing with braded ones, check the engine over following the Haynes manuals instructions.
The bike was rebuilt fitting new lower fairings, underseat tray, mini indicators and rear sets. The bike has been fully MOT and Taxed, it's now ready to ride. I think it looks like new.
Jobs left to do:
- Replace standard shocker with a new revalved GSXR 600 shocker,
- fit new spring and valves to the front forks and finally u
- pgrade the engine to 700cc.
Not a bad little run around!
