My GSXR is home!

Yeahhh she came home on Saturday but didnt get to ride much had to take the Mrs. to the movies. So we went this AM on a "high spirited" ride in the country out here... Man what a diffence those wheels an tires make in the handling. I thought it handle good before! The rearsets are great! they feel real good where we put them...there are so many ways to adjust these things! Sato Framesliders should be here on Tuesday. All black of course. Going to get some race plastics here soon so I can hit the track..Enjoy the pics!

Oh yeah and of course som RC pics..didnt want her to feel left out..

It is actually perfect! just loud enough when you WOT..but idle it does sound like it just wants to fly! I will admit this bike alreay has so much power that I will never tap into I did get my exhaust for looks...I love the way it looks and now black looks even better, also being a Huge MotoGP fan I want that look!

What exhaust is that on the Gixxer and how did it do on the HP improvement?

I LOVE Tig Bitties!

Midwest - No idea if there was HP gains in the exhaust we did not dyno it yet nor did we do a baseline run with the stock exhaust on...To be honest this thing has so much power anyway I was not really looking for power gains, I wanted looks and a motoGP sound...

AJ - I really like the tubes as well!! they came out real nice with the ceramic coating...I do expect it to fade some considering those pipes get so hot... I can try to get audio on here but no real way to do it so what I can do is post the youtube audio i heard which sold me

not a big fan of the GSX-R because of the squid factor but must admit it, I like yours. Beautifully done.

I agree Jet... Thats why I got my RC in 03, wanted something special...but now she is to special LOL so she gets treated extra special...those the GSXR takes the abuse...and well you can not argue with the power...good lord I will even admit a bike has never made me nervous but this one makes you think twice...
