I agree only a lesser bike should be modded like that. Thats why I did it to my K6, fits the bill perfectly. It sucks that its 10 times more fun to ride now but just so ugly.

Suzuki should have a BUY-BACK-SQUAD, to go out and seek peeps that screw up a fine sportbike like that and give you double for what you paid for it. In addition, you would have sign a document, that you will not buy another Suzuki again.

My first look at it, and my stomach turned.

Now, it really has got to be ugly, cause this is the first time I ever said something bad about a bike. If I got nothing good to say about a bike, I usually don't say anything. But, this is a major fuck up.

Go get a Katana, me thinks you are more suited to a Katana than to a redblooded gsxr!!

And after all that mess up, you dam chain is too tight too!!!

I couldn't disagree more. Naked bikes have their place. It's a custom setup that still can kick it through the twisties just fine. Can't see what the problem is.

I get it...and I like it. I've always loved the look of a naked bike but nobody makes a really good one. not one that performs like a gsxr1000 anyways. I guess Im gonna have to make my own like your doing.

I agree naked bikes do have their place, but not on a gixxer..why do it to a thourobred sportbike like the gixer..Like I said, ya all need to get some Katanas. The Katana and the streetfighter crew are a perfect match!!

Because he bought it, he likes it that way, and it's still America.

I bet he can still ride the shit out of that thing and probably have more fun on the street with the moto x bars.

I truly understand that this is America, and you can do what you want to what you buy.

However, there is an UNWRITTEN RULE among true enthusaists.

And this chit breaks all the fuckin rules.

Go get a Porsche, and put some dumb chit on it..The Porsche crowd would feel the same way I do.. Ditto for all those cool machines out there.

Just like you got states where ya can ride with out a helmet.

Just because you allowed to do it, doesn't make it right.

BTW, because this is America, I can still call it like I see it too.

I guess there are a ton of guys out there that spend countless hour building and modifying stock bike from the ground up that arent true enthusiasts. In other parts of the world this style of bike is much more popular. Just dont go to Europe, not many true enthusiasts there.

I thought a true enthusiast was someone who accepts all styles in some form or another within motorcycling and loves to ride.

Go back to taking video of yourself doing leglifts

I like it! I like both the sports bike look and the naked look(I can't have both at the moment though). Your bike is how a B-king should look, now those things are ugly! If I wanted a 1300 naked, I'd rather get a Busa and strip it(Ghost Rider's twin turbo Busa looks way better than a B-king).

Re: 2007 GSXr 1000 Streetfighter.. Almost Done!

first off, you're crazy if you've got problems with what others do to their own bikes. don't judge someone untill you've walked a mile in their shoes, you're a mile away and you still have their shoes.....plain a simiple. As for these streetfighters, I think they are really cool! And to make comments on who's a true blue, your nuts! In alockers deffense, I've seen him rip up the track at autohbahn on that bike. And when another rider needed help, he was the first to get his tools, use his time, and start wrenching. Think about that one.....so who's true blue now?
