New bike, old member

Havent been on this site for a while. Finally back on another GSXR. i sold my 2004 GSXR 1000 a few months ago around March so i could pay off some of my car loan. That never happened. Bought a jeep a week later. Sold the jeep a few weeks ago and now picked up another GSXR because i hated not having a bike.

So the setup so far is
-rear tire Michelin Pilot Power
-front tire Dunlop Sportmax Q2
-Scotts steering stabilizer
-timing retard eliminator
-akrapovic slip on, header taped headers
-power commander
- -1 front sprocket
- speedo healer
-gold bolt kit
-HID headlight
-LED license plate bracket
-turn signal mirror block offs
-stainless steel brake lines, forget what pads and fluid type
-stompgrip black tank grips
-rearseat and seat fairing
-vinyl on front headlight to make more of a diamond 04 shape

think thats about ittt. heres a pic of my old bike, then a pic of the new bike

it definitely feels different. i think my bars are turned in more on the 750 making it feel a little tighter. it feels like a smaller bike, like i feel more in control, down into the bike. hard to describe. more flickable, stops so much faster. one thing i liked better on my 1000 was the double bubble windscreen. on my 750 i still have the stock one and it seems much lower so i need to tuck more. still havent done a good pull on it or raced my friends 1000. trying really hard to stay the speed limit on roads. she will be seeing the track this summer though
