So after having my 2004 GS500Ffor about a year and logging in about 4,000 miles I decided to move on to a bigger bike. a 2004 GSXR 750. I brought her home last night. I drove her 25 miles back to my house. I must say im absolutly in love! Even in last gear she just wants to keep going and going. The mechanic who inspected it helped me out alot at Ride Now in Boulder hwy Las Vegas. His name was Tim.
I threw in a brand spanking new battery. I could tell the old one was going to be dying soon, and this weekend she will be getting a fresh new set of Dunlop Q2's, and all new fresh fluids, including some Amsoil Sythetic oil. Below I have some pictures from when I pulled in last night. Please disreguard the sticker on the wind screen and the squidish spike on the front of the bike. I removed those as soon as I got home! So tacky!
The bike has only 7559 Miles! I scored her for 4k
By the way, I had one more question. Is it normal for the clutch to be a little stiff? Is it the oil? Or is there a way to adjust it?
The clutch - stiff is relative A bike with more power needs a more heavy duty clutch so the 750 clutch will be considerably heavier than the one on the 500 by necessity.
If it feels unnaturally stiff () start by lubing the clutch cable (is a good idea in any case). WD-40 is good for that. Unbolt the lever and take it off the cable, then squirt WD-40 down along the inner cable slowly and work it as much as you can. It'll penetrate all the way down eventually.
Lots of in this post
Rest in Peace, Grizz and Robs - miss you my Friends.
