Engine numbers would help, also the capacity will be in raised letters on the lower part of the barrells, 1052cc being the earlier motor and 1127 being the later motor.

1052 had a number
1127 "f" different number but also had
1127 "R" 89-90 too
1127 "R" 91-92 too
1127 "G" too
1157 bandit ...
1157 gsx...

with number you can indentify what kind of engine is

Re: How to Identify What yr motor???

Sorry Ghostrider, I don't understand. I know I guy that has 3 engines on the garage floor and he says they are GSXR1100 but I wanted to know how to tell. I thought maybe by looking at an egine # there might be a way to indentify the yr, make & model. Otherwise, it might be a Katana, Gsxr or etc.

Re: How to Identify What yr motor???

I just got these engines from the guy last night. They have all come out of a Sprint Car. It's hard to tell the color beacuse they are very dirty and it looks like they have been spray painted. He told me that one of them is a 1240, 1216 and a stock 1127, Here are the engine #'s

V706-100138
V706-100285
V706-101510

Re: How to Identify What yr motor???

As far as crankcases, appears to be katana. But who knows what year the barrel, heads, and internals are, especially considering the ones modified with increased displacement.

Re: How to Identify What yr motor???

"f" (katana in u.s.) was first 1127 engine
3-4 hp more than "R" 1052 less top end
but more low middle (34 mm carb)
i think also had less compression compare to 1127 "R"
