You can find parts for these older GSX-R's on ebay for cheap. You'll have your bike running in no time.

Here are some pics I hope they upload. Needs fairings not sure if I will repair or buy new ones, chain and sprockets, new gas tank, air ram tubes, battery flushmount blinkers, water pump oil seal, and every single bolt and all bolt holes retapped from someone over tightening everything! You can see how they messed up the drain plug and never changed the sprockets. But it has new rectifier and full micron exhaust system lol. It will pretty much be a brand new bike when I'm done. I have everything just eh about fairings and deciding what to do. Its my weekend project it keeps me busy. It should be rideable this weekend: crosses fingers:

Re: New GSXR rider her saying hello from SoCal!

I just parted out a MINT condition '01 1000. If you are considering keeping this bike it would be a good idea to get your Red R and check the classified section as good condition OEM parts for the 1st Gen 1k's are getting harder to find. Especially the OEM ram air tubes

Thanks i actually already have ram air tubes found a guy parting out a 1k on craigslist. I have a new tank also so before i dive into painting and dealing with the fairings i want it running perfect.

Hmm, no you don't unless you know who you are riding with.
