So does anyone have a 750 map for 01-04 1k header with an 05-06 1k M4 GP.

The dynojet website doesn't have something similar to your setup? I have a feeling the only way you'll be able to get a map made specifically for your parts is to get some dyno time.

Looking to do this, will I have to mess with the fairings or anything or should it be a straight forward swap with no modifying? I have a k5 750 just for clarification.

It will burn the bottom unless you trim them a little. Not a big deal

Re: HOW TO: Headers swap 600 vs. 1000 (PICS)

I just did the swap was pretty painless but this is the issue I ran into. Anyone else ran into this or know what I can do to fix it? Its not like you can just push this away its very tight up against the plastic.



Then this didn't line up either.



Here are a couple more pics of the process.

My suggestion?? Bring the pipe to someone that CAN CUT the valve and replace the pièce soldering a new steel pièce without the valve. Actually your ECU does not support that valve so is a nonsense keep it

Re: HOW TO: Headers swap 600 vs. 1000 (PICS)

For the people who have done this, did you use the old gaskets or use new ones? If you used old is it working out and for how long has it been since you swapped?

Re: HOW TO: Headers swap 600 vs. 1000 (PICS)

On my swap ... I used zip ties on the midpipe bolt.. I didnt put a bolt thru there.. just 3 big zipties.. and then jb weld the hole on the midpipe..

EDIT: Where your pipe is touching the plastic.. you need to add spacers aka (Washers) in between the fairings and bolt... so the midpipe wont burn ur fairings up.

The 05 STOCK Headers+midpipe 600 is heavy.. The 03-04 GSXR1000 headers is light.. I was surprised.. I cannot believe the frickin diffrence from STEEL headers VS. Titanium headers. The weight advantage is a big huge diffrence... You shaved off maybe 15-20 lbs. in weight.. I don't know. Just using my head.. I don't have a weight scale to check.

This mod is 6 on scale of 1-10 easy to hard. It should last you prolly 1-2 hrs. depends on how fast or slow you want to do it. All i did was take my time and everything went smoothly. After everything is done, you will have to modify your fairings, so the exhaust wont touch and melt it.. If you go to the second page on this forum, you will see how i modify my fairings. It don't take much to do and it works real good. Bolt nuts and washers.


Taking old headers off-

You take BOTH fairings off.. Alot of room.. You can use "PB Blaster" or WD-40 to the headers bolts.. let it soak in for like a mins, so you can unscrew those ungodly, nasty, rusted 6mm allen bolts off.. You can skip this step if you want. But, they are hard to get off, if you dont. Take a Long torque bar at it. Then you can unscrew the 10mm at the lower part of the radiator. take the screw out. then you UNscrew the 2 top 10mm bolts on the upper radiator,. Don't take them out.. just loosened it up to where you can move the radiator out towards your front fender. Then grab something you can put in between the radiator and its mounting bracket to keep it coming back down on ya, when your unscrewing the allen bolts off the headers. I grabbed a lil fuse box i found in the garage and used that for this part.. you can see in the pics.. It gave me enough room to unscrew all the headers ALLEN BOLTS out.. I did this very very carefully.. "GO SLOW, TAKE YOUR TIME". dont hit your radiator FINS.. you can bend them easily.. You can always use a small flathead screwdriver to make them straight.. After you take all 8 Allen bolts out, But, before you take your 600 HEADERS OFF.. You need to go where that 12mm bolt is right by your FOOTPEGS and take that off first. before you drop the headers down... THEN "Slowly drop your 600 headers down and SLOWLY pull it out".. Feel How heavy that Son of a bitch IS.. DAMN!

Putting the NEW Headers on..-

I got some extra GASKETS i found in my garage from when i had my 03 600, i was putting full exhaust on.. So i grabbed 4 new GASKETS.. I took 4 of the old ones out.. You can put 4 new ones in or you can keep your old ones you have now, and reuse them.. Then you take the Titanium Headers and "SLOWLY put it up to the gaskets". I put "BLUE" Loctite on the allen bolts When i put them back in.. You can do this, if you want to.. You dont have too. But, in the future they might loosen itself up from all the riding and WOT. Exhaust LEAKS sucks. So, After You put all the bolts back in and hand tighten all of them til the headers seats to the gaskets you put in.. Once all that is done, You proceed to tighten all the allen bolts starting from the middle and work your way out.. i tightened them all down to 16.5 ft. lbs. when i did it, cause thats what the OWNERS MANUAL says to do.. OR you can handtighten them yourself or whatever.

Thats it..

how it should look when both right and left fairings are off the bike..



OEM 600 headers + midpipe


Your 600 headers + midpipe together vs. 04 GSXR 1000 headers only- no midpipe.


the fuse box i use to space it out.. (You can use whatever you want to space that out)


Old Gaskets which is kept. and (8) headers allen bolts


The 04 GSXR1000 Titanium headers on the bike.. (How it should look after everything is done)


Your Gixxer owners manual, old gaskets on bottom, new gaskets Vesrah on top (if bought)

If doing this swap could I use my existing 600 midpipe or would I need a 1000 midpipe to go with the headers? Thanks

I bought a 2013 Gixxer and would love to do this mod. But will it work and if so, what year headers would I be looking for? Thanks in advance.

And as I understand it, 03/04 headers DO NOT have fairing spacing problems?

Hello, I have searched/posted today and cant find an answer.

I have a 2005 750, will a 2001-2004 Gix 1000 Akra full system fit my bike?

Thanks
