1989 GSXR 1100 ground up rebuild

I have a 1989 GSXR 1100 that i bought for 250$. The drawback was that it was in pieces....several pieces. I bought this bike because i love it and i wanted a decent project. i have all the parts (Plastics, rolling chassis, motor etc...). I cleaned all the plastics and removed everything from the rolling chassis so i could take inventory of what i need to replace. I am waiting on breaking down the frame until i can get the motor finished. I have followed both the Suzuki Service Manual and the Haynes Repair Manual.

I have been taking my time in disassembling and labeling and bagging practically everything on the motor. I haven't run into any major problems ie..no broken/stripped bolts, no cracks <knock on wood>.

I am stuck at splitting the crankcase though. I can hear that parts of the split have separated when i tap it with a rubber mallet, but some part of it is still binding. I think it is in the recessed corner around the transmission output shaft.

Any thoughts on if i am missing anything, or tips on how to split a case thats nearly 25 years old?

Pictures available if necessary.

If you are asking about the signal generator, then there was one bolt holding the rotor and then 3 bolts holding the stator, and all of those have been removed.

He means the alternator, from another thread:

" There is another well hidden bolt from the top. On the alternator mount housing there is a plug, under that plug is the hidden bolt. "

There is a few ninja bolts, but if you take your time you can find 'em all.

image of an 88 750 motor showing some bolts from a previous thread, also mentions under oil filter etc. 1100 should be very similar.

Re: 1989 GSXR 1100 ground up rebuild

Found all those ninja bolts previously. i did find one that i missed though. It was attached to the oil return tube in the oil pan. I don't remember the manual stating anything about removing that one.

I split the case and bagged the trans, trans cam, forks, and oil pump. the only thing left in the case is a couple of the dowels and the two bearings from the transmission.

Everything is in great condition, no chips, no shavings, even the bearings roll without any grit.

Re: 1989 GSXR 1100 ground up rebuild

sensational m8. im following you now.

check out the transmission shaft bearings btw. I completely overhauled the engine due to a second gear that popped out and one of those bearings was with its intestines out. no need to say that new ones will be installed...

cheers¡¡
