Well with my gixxr fighter build mostly done I gave up on the "wreck gixxr rebuild" thread(mods close if you want), so I moving on to upgrades and modifications.
My most plaguing issue was the threat of water in the SRAD intakes, mike was concerned about my rain blockers also blocking air flow, no worries they've been rain tested now and they work great, it doesn't respond quite as fast but I can live with that, pic belowImageUploadedByTapatalk1350367809.423267.jpg
Now my gauges didn't fare so well, both oil and temp are shot with rust colored water dripping from them, the were a complete failure!
I also had to quickly WD-40 my starter button controls and seal them with RVT as well as the light/signal switches, they were tweeked a little and were quickly filling with water, but for the most part she's doin good, now I know an I wrecked bike wouldn't have these issues but being that I'm a cheap ass I decided to rebuild a wrecked bike so I have to deal with it
The new yoshi pipe is working out great!, I shortened it 3" for the desired look and it has quieted the bike alot, no more can it be heard for miles
it also gave it this cool sounding growl on the decel.
I robbed the hand guards off the DRZ and they slipped right on the fighter
So I have a couple questions #1 will a 530 chain fit my gixxr? Is there any benefit on this bike? Would I have to change sprocket?(guess that was more like 3)
#2- most 4 cylinders I've listen to are smooth running with a straight purrrr, my 750 has a sort of "lope" to it at an idle, do you think there's something wrong with it? Or is this normal? Cam-ed?
Any way this is the next chapter, I'll try not to be too much of the pestering suzuki guy, and thanks for the help in the last thread :-)
