2004 GSXR 1K Q's

2004 GSXR 1000 Questions;

Is there a VIN on the engine and where?

I'm pretty sure this bike has had a framectomy.
Also, it was sitting outside a while.

The plastics have been painted.
The tank bondo'd and painted.

Forks look OK.

Rear subframe looks a little twisted but it could be the plastics.

Throttle cable and return were routed wrong and are nearly snapped off.

Bent brake lever.

Exhaust suffered a serious low side.

I could care less about cosmetics, just structural stuff matters.
Don't care about the plastics.

Rims look ok.

Tires look like a street rider.

Starts, runs, doesn't leak.

$3700

I dunno man. That top right pic tells me to walk away. my machine won't allow me to expand it to see for sure. And you said it may be plastics, but still I think

Silly question. Have you looked around bike scrapyards for a "rebuilder" ?

I think you're riding a fine line here. But if you've got the time tools and patience........

There's an 02 Z-rex with 2995 mi for less than 4 grand in immaculate condition 10 miles from me.

The ONLY way would be to flip it for a profit. Good luck whatever you decide.

yeah, that pic is pretty scary

but if it's just a subframe, no big deal

i dunno, i'm not to psyched about it...there are other options but there are also dark forces pushing me in that direction

I just want to take a shot at liter power on the track at least once, that's all.

I'm so out of practice/shape, it'll take til the end of the summer for me to get any mojo working.

Just make sure your at a track with a LONG straight - A liter bike would kick you square in the nads @ a smallish track like Barbers ! They are fun, fun but really scarey - they can and will spin the tire out of every corner you really twist the throttle out of and they will spit you off the very second yo udont pay attention - but, other than that they are fun - For maximum fun, get yourself a SV650 -
