Kinda new guy

Hi. Name is Jon. I was a member a few years back. When I had my 1992 gsxr1100. Now I'm back this time I own a 2004 gsxr1000. I also have a 2007 r6 but that's another forum haha

I found this bike in a garage in Laredo with only 1800 miles... The tank was rusted from sittin and the tires were bad but after I had the inside of the tank sandblasted and relined and a new set of michelins. The bike is right as rain. Hands down the fastest bike I have ever owned...

There's a picture of it after first startup the other night.

Anyway look forward to being a part of the gixxer community

Bike came with the frame sliders and spools and windscreen and grips all color matched and carbon gsxr trim on the triple tree the gas tank the tank pad. Came with the rear cowl. Idk if it is all factory cause everything says gsxr on it.

It also came to me with a k&n installed. An a d&d exhaust(not installed). I'm debatin on puttin on the exhaust without a power commander


Bike now sits on Michelin pilot road tires (since it sits for weeks at a time from work didn't want too soft of a compound) and has the original chain and sprocket and brakes!

Did recently notice my fork seal leaking so ill be tackling that end of this month when I'm home again

Re: Kinda new guy

wow if you got it for the right price that sounds like an amazing deal man. What do you have the two bikes for. I mean i know its faster the the R6 but you have an R6 haha. unless the deal was just to good to pass up.

Well originally I had a 2006 r6ImageUploadedByMO Free1351927287.055426.jpg

But when I came across the gsxr I had to have it so I sold my r6 to get te Suzuki my first bike was a gsxr 1100 like I stated so Suzuki always had a place with me. And I bought the gsxr by itself originally. Then later I was offered the 07 r6 to top off the deal. I ended up getting both bikes for 9500 bucks
